Some wonder why certain people who are rich can be so continuously grumpy. why aren’t they grateful for the blessed life they’ve been able to live? some are curious when they travel to 3rd world countries, and there are groups of people who are the most welcoming, warm-hearted humans they’ve ever met. how are some people with nothing so much happier than those with seemingly “everything”? i have often found those that have never struggled for their next meal won’t know how special it is when they’ve have all their meals guaranteed all their lives. when you struggle for love, success, money, food, safety, spiritual connection, etc. when you’ve known how deeply painful it can be to fight everyday to achieve something, even if it’s just the loneliness of never being hugged, and you finally have the experience. you know the value of having not, and it makes that experience so much sweeter than those that have that hug every day and night. it’s not that those who have are not capable of being grateful, which is why lots of rich and successful people are happy people, but this is a reason why some are not. through struggle we know gratitude. through pain we know pleasure. we cannot have one without the other as the two are inseparable. it’s like having a back with no front. it’s not possible. but we can use one to enrich the other in healthy ways to propel us toward joyful living. and continue to manifest positivity in our lives 🙏🏻 #be#awesome#blessed#beautiful#spirit#fun#wisdom#grateful#knowledge#believe#faith#hope#live#laugh#love#peace#life#namaste#grace#humble#mindful_seeker#justdoit#positive#change#new#today#present#discover#happy
Looking at a flower.. i see it as a plant, or something that produces oxygen for us to breathe. some see it as physical result of the inner working of the universe. others give me different perspectives of religious symbology (fleur de lis), spiritual, scientific, art/aesthetic viewpoints, etc. to each person, the simple flower can have all kinds of different meanings. none of these other views are wrong by any means, but to the intelligent person these views give them a better comprehensive understanding that they may be able to care for the flower better having known it more deeply. this can be applied to anything in the world especially people.
