A famous psychiatrist who treats depression was advising a friend who had terminal cancer and was experiencing mood problems. “I’m having him spend 30 minutes every day, at the beginning of the day, to think about how important this day is — that it may be the most important day of his life, or one of the richest.”
What does this mean to you? Isn’t that a very positive way of looking at his day as something very important, that there might be something wonderful, astounding, awe-inspiring happen on this special day? What if you set aside 30 minutes, too, to do as the psychiatrist suggested, what do you think you would think or meditate about?
