May 27--Perception

Happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.  --Ayn Rand

    Today I offer this additional quote from Mike Dooley. This is the May 25th "Notes from the Universe":

    Courageous is the soul who adventures into time and space to learn of their divinity. For while they cannot lose, they can think they have, and the loss will seem intolerable. And while they cannot fail, they can think they have, and the pain will seem unbearable. And while they cannot ever be less than they truly are—powerful, eternal, and loved—they can think they are, and all hope will seem lost.
    And therein lies their test. A test of perceptions: of what to focus on, of what to believe in, in spite of appearances.

    Appearances these days can be especially dreadful, making happiness seem so far out of reach. It's "a test of perceptions."
    Working on my focus,

Nature and beauty--excellent focal points
