What do you usually think about during your day?
I recently came across a quote from a great spiritual teacher from India. Short and sweet, casually paraphrased he says,
"Life is like sand and sugar. Be like the ant and look for the sugar."
If things are going upside down and sideways in your life, it can be difficult to look for the good. But it's very important.
And even if it's something small, from a coffee pot that works in the morning to a soft pillow that comforts you at night, if you can just pick your head up a little bit, and look for the good, you'll find that it starts to make a difference in your life.
The reason I want you to know this is because this is a universal truth:
What you focus on expands.
So if your head is down and you're absorbed in everything
that isn't going right . . . begin to just lift up and look for the good.
You'll be amazed at the way your life can begin to change.
So again, be like the ant and look for your sugar!
Here's the actual quote:
"Everything on earth is of mixed character
Like a mingling of sand and sugar.
Be like the wise ant
That seizes only the sugar
And leaves the sand untouched."
