Three Golden Rules to Make Life Lovely

With winter having passed away, it is now not too cold to come out in the garden in mornings. As I did that today the thought occurred that I should share with all, three simple golden rules of life and living that helps improve life hugely


1. Experience the Magic of new Beginnings daily

Do try and remember that every day is a new day, like a new life. When you get up daily, make your bed, visit the toilet, brew a nice cup of tea, listen to the song of birds, and thank the Sun and Universe for this life; for 
The grateful are given more and much is taken away from those who are not.
If it is not too cold, step out in green for green spaces nurture the soul; walk on the grass bare feet and it shall soothe mind, body and soul and if it is a holiday plan for a picnic to a forest nearby.

2. One thing at a time and a few daily

While there seems to be so much to do, remember it is only possible to do one thing at a time well and only a few daily. Sit down in a quiet corner with a note pad and pencil and choose what you have to do for the day. You could make a list if there happens to be too much to do today. As you choose the things to do daily, do not forget to include one or two that shall improve your apparatus, your own self, even a bit for one can not get too far in a rickety or unserviced car. Do also include to a good deed or two for someone else - man, animal or the world for if you would not do anything good for the universe around you, it too may not, and one cannot get very far without that.

Forget any reflection on past until evenings when you are done with the day. Evenings are for that and to relax. Do not plan for the next day in evenings leaving that for mornings when mind and body are refreshed from a night’s sleep.

3. Remember you are on a journey

If something seems too worrisome or fearful in your life, do remember it is just temporary, something that will pass away like a nightmare when you get up into a new life sooner or later for life is a journey where trains are changed after the passing of a few years and all on the previous journey is left behind for fresh beginnings. The idea is that it is not worth it to take temporary things as seriously as permanent ones.
Your permanent asset is your soul and it is especially protected by the Father who gave it. Neither a tiny cancer causing virus nor the biggest nuclear bomb in the world can put a scratch on it.
