The deep magic of appreciation

If anyone asks me what the best way to recalibrate is, I say Appreciation.

If anyone asks me what the best way to stop over-focusing on the madness ‘out there’ is, I say Appreciation.

If anyone asks me what the best way to regain perspective is, I say Appreciation.

In fact appreciation has a special kind of magic. It stops our yo-yo mind in its tracks. It opens us to the wider truths that we may have lost sight of in our addictive attention to detail. Appreciation reminds us that there is something much bigger at work which holds and supports us.

And… in the moment of appreciation – no matter how short that moment is – fear and doubt disappear. It’s impossible to be in appreciation and lack at the same time.

Magic.
