Zebulen sent me on a search for books that have influenced me. I returned to Authentic Happiness by Martin Seligman. One takes "tests," and discovers their five top signature strengths.
Curiosity and interest in the world.
Love of Learning.
Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence.
Capacity to love and be loved.
They are equally distributed for me, so I got 100% on each of these and my strengths are important to remember on what feels like such an important day.
If you are interested, you can check Seligman out and take some tests at: http://www.authentichappiness.sas.upenn.edu/Default.aspx
I think the book is the way to go, and the site can entice you into that, which may lead you to a tome, Character Strengths and Virtues, by Peterson and Seligman. I must admit I bought the tome, but haven't read it, and now it sits on my desk, inviting, saying, now is the time. I don't know what this day brings, but I do know the importance of each of us celebrating our strengths, virtues, and even weaknesses, each moment of the day.
Watching a man disconnect from his soul and flail about is sad, and is an inducement for each of us to nurture a stronger hold and honoring of what fuels our soul. What else do we really have, but a firm connection to Source, and what matters is how each of us manifests the diversity and unification of the whole.
