Endless studies have attempted to show that appreciation is relatively easy to attain. Unfortunately they are based in theoretical analysis. Relativity looks and behaves very differently in the practical world, especially 21st century style. What such observations recommend is if you do A-Z you will have tools at your physical/emotional disposal to reach a place where a state of appreciation may appear, maybe.
When faced with total physical and emotional loss, an overwhelming and all-encompassing sensation of appreciation of, for and about everything erupts into focus. Unfortunately this realization, unless it’s a life ending phase, is only a transitory event that passes fairly quickly. Occasions such as these are a panic bargaining with God pause. ‘Please God, I will cease and desist doing A-Z if you please just stop what’s happening, I beg you.’ Most people over the age of 5 have had such conversations on more than one occasion and if you have survived though it all to old age, then your chats with God are liable to increase.
What really supplies appreciation with the boost juice it desires is real deal fear and hope. Unfortunately these realities can have very short and brutal life ending duration's, so there’s not much wriggle room for the appreciative happening to lock in.
For those who have time to digest the realities about end of life and all that is involved in such a phase, rewards can and do abound. Gaining more while losing all doesn’t appear to make sense, much like withdrawing more from a bank than was deposited. However, much like money, most of what we accumulate in our life bank is actually worthless and of little substance. Most of our possessions are mere distractions from what is genuine, real and truly lasting.
Luckily fear and hope are two sides of the same coin, a very rich token that gives weight and value to the currency of appreciation. Invariably fear comes up more often in the toss.
But if we are aware and focused enough, eventually hope will appear in the process.
And if repeated and practiced enough times, even when your life spin is reaching its end, hope will placate and soothe fear, thereby enabling a possible link to everlasting and eternal appreciation.
Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
