“Each day you have many successes. To you they may seem unimportant. But to the sage, everything is important. Most of us tend to underplay our triumphs, for we are taught as children not to boas – to be nice and humble and call upon the Lord for forgiveness of our wretched state. That is a bunch of spiritual hogwash. You do not have to fake being humble, and the Lord does not consider you wretched at all. Even in your most awful moments, you are beautiful, and eternity is laced through every molecule of your being.
As you begin to see your life as important, each and every act, however small, becomes important as well. So a walk in silence at dawn is a triumph of discipline, an affirmation of essence. Giving your notice at work may be another. An hour of communicating with a person who is causing you trouble is another. Once you focus on success, the things you do toward that end act like candles on your path.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Affirmations”
