The other day I read a quote by Sadhguru. He said, “The best thing you can do for your family, your children, society, and the world around you is to enhance yourself.”
Enhance is an interesting word. I looked it up in the dictionary. Some of the definitions include boost, raise, lift, elevate, exalt, improve, enrich, complement.
I am sure we all have different ideas about how we can enhance ourselves.
For me, I felt inspired to take note of what this means to me at this time.
Living in a tranquil environment.
Sharing my time, talents, and other resources.
Eating well and with a dash of gratitude.
Having dreams for the future.
Making peace with the past.
Being of service to family, friends, and community.
Having consistent practices like prayer and meditation, journaling, mindfulness practices.
Maintaining the kind of integrity that strengthens character.
Cultivating a compassionate heart.
Taking in the small things with a sense of appreciation.
Seeking knowledge and remaining teachable.
Exploring what is sacred.
Remaining reverent toward nature and natural law.
Staying steady when possible.
Offering friendship and recognizing the value of community.
Performing acts of kindness.
I believe I could go on.
I’d like to plant this seed today for you. I am hoping perhaps you will explore this topic yourself.
Our personal development radiates to those in our sphere of influence. Those closest to us can enjoy our efforts.
Who knows how far the effect extends?
