Reality Mirrors Itself

What is my reality of the world?
Do I view people as untrustworthy
and self-centered? Is life hard,
too much work, not enough
money? Am I disappointed
with my life?

What does it mean
that we create our
own reality? Do we
cause disasters and death
with our pessimism
and discontentment?
What does it mean
“reality mirrors itself?”

Today, I woke up happy,
no, more than happy–grateful,
looking forward to
another day.
I now know how precious
life is, regardless of
how events unfold.
No matter what happens today,
when I go to bed tonight,
I will be happy–no more, than happy.
I will be grateful for this day,
will you?

    What fires together wires together is basic neuroscience

    Where we place our attention grows, where we withhold withers and dies

    We become what we perceive
