The ancient skill of alchemy is alive and well, and you are an alchemist. Everywhere around you are the materials for your joy.
Some – a brightly coloured flower, a smiling baby, a graceful tree, a playful puppy, a beautiful piece of music, a shaft of sunlight glinting on the water – present themselves without any effort on your part beyond you simply noticing them.
Others may require you to seek them out deliberately; cultivating the habit of looking for beautiful or meaningful objects and situations will multiply them.
Soon your days are full of joyful and peaceful moments, so that even though there may be some painful or disturbing moments too, you will be able to restore your equilibrium and equanimity again before very long, and you will see the negative experiences as what they are, passing clouds.
