Change Your Thinking
Instead of looking for occasions to be offended, which is what most people do (for example, "I don't like what he said," "I don't like the way she dresses," "I don't like traffic" or "I don't like the president"), start to look for occasions to be supported.

Think about this famous quote from Walt Whitman: "To me, every cubic inch of space is a miracle." Begin to have what I call a "Miracle Mind-set": Realize that every thing—every mosquito, every baby, every tree, every cloud—is a great mystery. Start to see the mystery and miraculousness of all things, and ask yourself where it all comes from. If creation is possible, then whatever it is you've lost faith in can be recreated if you believe in a supportive universe.
