THE POWER OF OPTIMISM
By Jeffrey Remis
Gratitude Ambassador

TIP:  
Gratefully tune in the optimism channel.

DEFINITION:
Optimism is our choice to create views of the future for ourselves and others which are best.

TEACHINGS: 
Among Humanity’s gifts are free will, creation power, imagination, and intelligence.
Worry is a prayer for the worst possible outcome. Optimism is an alternative prayer for the best possible outcome. Both worry and optimism rely on our choices of how to use imagination.

Winston Churchill tells us that "An optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."

Each person can access four types of intelligence. Those types are: soul intelligence, heart intelligence, mind intelligence, and body intelligence. We can use one or more types.

Combining imagination and intelligence does not negate our intelligence.

Albert Einstein: “I think the most important question facing humanity is, ‘Is the universe a friendly place?’ This is the first and most basic question all people must answer for themselves.

SOUL SECRETS: 
Gratitude includes: appreciation, respect, reverence, and joy.

STUDY PRACTICES:
This week I invite you to join me on a thought experiment, just for 7 days. After that week, each person can decide to continue that experiment or return to their previous paradigms.

I choose for today to experience every moment as if the following were true:
* We are living in a friendly universe.
* I am not required to be in judgement of everyone, everything, myself, and God.
* Criticism, complaint, and comparison to others are not options for me.
* Kindness is an option for me.
* I am not required to understand God or this pattern of soul transmigration. Alternatively, I can appreciate the mystery.
* Helpful options are appreciation, acceptance, awe, wonder, lightness, curiosity, humor, joy, and inspiration.
* I totally and completely forgive myself for any lapses in this protocol.
