Horse Sense Economics 101.6

Enjoy the view that doesn't change whether your are solvent or struggling.

Today @yokoono tweeted: "Think of a beautiful thing you don't own. See if you could still appreciate its beauty."

This is a remarkable observation from an enormously wealthy woman. And the true meaning of "the best things in life are free."

If this is not a habit for you, give it a try. Start with that sunset or star-filled sky and possess that feeling that relaxes your facial muscles into a smile and moves through your body. You could be standing in a bombed out junkyard (literally, figuratively and spiritually) and be set aglow with a sunset. Especially one that comes through polluted skies. (I remember that from living in Los Angeles.)

You'd be surprised how easy it is to transfer that experience to a material item you admire and covet. Let go of the covet, and let the admiration fill you with wonder. It's not just a recipe for a free thrill, it's something you can take away to feel completely and substantially enriched.

Get inspired. It's not difficult. And it's priceless.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
