If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. – E.B. White
This is thought provoking. How should we really live?
Aha! Got the answer. We would feel torn if we considered ‘improving the world’ and ‘enjoying the world’ to be separate desires or goals. Unless and until we accept the world as it is and until we think that it is good, we cannot improve it. ‘Cause only good can become better. Bad can get worse.
We cannot improve the world by finding flaws with it. Our perspective has to be one that sees things as good and then locates the areas which can be developed further. So, enjoying the world is the first step to improving the world.
I intend to enjoy the world from this moment on. Are you joining me? God is already on board! 🙂
