Your Simple, Fun, And Profound Daily Investment

You can find several essays, each one written within the past month-and-a-half, centered on a “daily investment.”

On this blog, that is; these are essays that were written by me.

And, with the above in mind, these essays are as follows:

Our intention, with this essay, is to expand on what you can find in those essays.

Sort of.

Our real intention is to expand on a manner of appreciation that may be fun for you.

Something that you can use to experience a quick dose of pleasure, abundance, and delight.

Or, at least, something to that effect.

A Pleasant List

Our “daily investment” is gratitude.

Giving yourself a few minutes, every single day, to be grateful.

To be grateful for what.


Your health. The beauty of this world. A dog that you saw on the road. Your abundance.

And so on and so forth.

You can be grateful in many, many ways.

But, one of my favorite ways to be grateful, is making a list.

A pleasant list that you can title “Things I Am Grateful For” or “What I Appreciate” or “Things That I Love.”

And so on and so forth.

You can write for a few minutes.

Just keep your pen/hands/keyboard moving.

And, by the time you finish, you will be grateful.

A grateful mind is a rich, active, and receptive mind.

Rich, active, and receptive to, and for, what?

The innate abundance of our universe, those around us, and ourselves.

A Plethora Of Gifts

A plethora of gifts can, and will, arise if you conduct this daily investment.

Some of the gifts that have arisen from my brief, fun, and lovely gratitude lists are as follows:

  • A deeper appreciation for the richness of the universe.
  • A greater sense of peace.
  • A strong sense of possibility and potential.
  • A receptivity, as it were, to unexpected gifts and blessings.
  • A lot of little, but lovely, surprises.

And so on and so forth.

Regarding the latter, some of these little, but lovely, surprises include:

  • A collection of fun experiences with friends.
  • Some extra money.
  • New ideas that really excite me.
  • Interesting books.
  • Various opportunities for work.

And so on and so forth.

All of these gifts can be brought forth with ease. And, in the end, that is something to appreciate.

On The Nature Of Sleep

Sleep is the doorway to creation.

Or, at least, that’s one idea.

If you fall asleep in a particular state, you will dream within that state.

And, in dreaming within that state, your world will reshape itself, to align with that state.

All of these notions are rooted within the work of Neville Goddard.

Our these notions true?

Eh, perhaps.

If nothing else, they appear to be true, in certain ways, within the context of my life.

Given this, then, there is one last little notion to suggest, regarding your “daily investment.”

And, this notion is as follows: if you write your gratitude list before going to bed/falling asleep, you will fall asleep in a state of pure, rich, and vibrant appreciation.

The state of appreciation that you exist within will flow out into the universe you experience.

You will effortlessly bring forth more gifts to appreciate.

Or, at least, that’s the idea. And, in my experience, this idea is true.


Just to wrap this up, thank you for reading!

If you enjoyed this essay, then that is lovely.

Best wishes and please have a lovely day!
