Some modern scientific research is showing more and more that there is no
objective world “out there” and that we each create our own reality beyond
anything we can imagine. At every moment, we choose what we want to see,
as this anonymous blessing I have considerably adapted from The Treasure
May you count your garden by its flowers, not the petals that fall.
May you count your days by their joys rather than their fears and
by the hours of sunshine rather than of grey clouds.
May you count your world by the friends you make
rather than the strangers who shun you.
May you count your nights by the brightness of the stars
rather than the depth of the darkness.
May you count your hours by the love and light you expressed, and the good
deeds done, rather than the time spent in inaction or omission.
May you count your years by the opportunities you fulfilled
rather than those you missed and by the projects you succeeded in,
rather than the failures we all encounter on our path.
