Be careful how you interpret the world: It is like that.
~ Erich Heller
This reminds me of people who mistrust other people. Everyone they meet is automatically suspect.
It reminds me of those who see life as a burden. Every activity, demand and request feels like a burden to them.
It reminds me of those who are joyless. They find no reason to express gratitude, happiness or delight. Each day feels like an empty void.
In the words of Mary Baker Eddy, “Mortal mind sees what it believes as certainly as it believes what it sees. It feels, hears, and sees its own thoughts” (Science and Health, p. 86).
On the contrary, a spiritually inspired thought informed by Truth and Love enables one to see more evidence of God’s goodness all around.
On a dreary day, these individuals can still find reasons to rejoice and be happy. They can see beyond another person’s shortcomings to their virtues and strengths. They can find friends at every corner. They can find a reason to smile even though they receive a frown. They can find hope where all appears hopeless. They live in a consciousness of God’s omnipresence that opens their eyes to seeing evidence of God’s love and care wherever they go.
So yes, be careful how you interpret the world. Don’t interpret it from a demoralized mortal mind’s point of view. Interpret it from God’s point of view and watch beautiful scenes of blessings roll out before your eyes wherever you go and in whatever you do.
