Think for a moment about what allows for an environment in which one can thrive. Any living creature needs certain things to survive – basic things, the fundamental “stuff” of which life itself requires. But there is another set of factors at play with respect to thriving in an environment.
Plants, animals, humans – all of God’s creatures – will separate themselves from others with respect to how well they succeed and flourish within their ecosystem, their community, their family, etc. What elements allow for this at the greatest levels?
Attention, care, nourishment, a helping hand, and so forth. The main commonality among all of these factors is that they come from a place of love. Love of self and love to and from others.
Surround yourself with love. Allow that emotion and that state to be strong in your life. Diminish the opportunity for it to be counter balanced with hate, envy, deceit, negativity. Force it to be so abundant that the scale is tipped so mightily in its favor that you cannot help but thrive because you are immersed in it.
God is love. God is within you. You are love. Open yourself up to it. Seek it and avoid the opposite. Surround yourself with love and thrive.
Goodbye for now.
