Could genuine appreciation/gratitude be the ‘magic elixir?’

Is it possible that a ‘WAY’ deep, loving, altruistic spirit of TRUE APPRECIATION (I’m ‘talkin’ the real deal’ here!) could be THE ‘magic elixir’ in realizing substantive health and healing, i.e., emotionally, physically, and spiritually?

What would it genuinely mean if this is true? What if quintessentially benevolent and altruistic sparkling spine-tingling/shivering true appreciation (as a WAY OF LIFE) is the ‘key’ to unlock the door to ‘true health’…impeccable healing and wellness?

What if it is true that just about all of us have abilities that would allow us to enjoy this level of health and well-being – if we are willing to work at it and display the wherewithal, i.e., learn more and more and more how to take the proverbial ‘bull by the horns’ – learn to so deeply appreciate, feel gratitude for all of the resplendent blessings and gifts which are always inside of us, and all around us, all of the time? What if we could learn to stop ignoring these beyond-words wonderful gifts and blessings? What would life be like? What level of mindfulness and gratitude would it require (maybe even taking years or decades to gather such skill), all the while knowing that there is ALWAYS room for improvement, greater and greater levels of objective insight and its practical applications?

Life can obviously be QUITE difficult at times, albeit what if we realized that a spirit inclusive of blaming, complaining, and lack of forgiveness is among the most real of diseases, what would it mean? What if it is SO much about ‘true health through true responsibility?’

What if, what if, what if…what if a significant key to all of this is in being willing to ask ourselves these questions on a daily basis?

It is going to take another couple of years, but my second book is going to address this issue in a conversational fiction-like dynamic, i.e.:

“A Glimpse of Heaven: The Philosophy of True Health
Volume II – True Appreciation”

Albeit, you don’t have to wait for my silly book, i.e., you can ask yourself these questions yourself, each day, if you so choose to think there might be something to this outlook. In my ages-old traditions, it is a substantive aspect of the Bright Beautiful School of Thought.

The following saying addresses the outlook herein, in a very special fashion:

“Bestow a string of faith

For faith we might have,

Unto the jester of light,

In the comedy of reflections,

As we stand upon this stage,

In awe of
