The question how are you feeling today is one that connotes goodwill from the person doing the asking. Although, the question has been so much in use so much that it now sounds like a catch phrase. And the usual answer is fine thank you even when the person doing the answering may be anything but fine at that moment- an answer which we produce unthinkingly like robots.
However, how we feel is an indicator of love, well being, abundance and happiness. A happy person will feel calm and sometimes grateful for whatever is causing him to feel happy. A feeling of well-being similarly indicates good health and abundance for the gifts of life, just as a feeling of love can also show you are in a harmony with life, your relationships and with yourself.
And unfortunately, a sad person has no business feeling happy, loved or well being.
In the world today many people move about with so much negative energy, angry with their employers, spouses, children and neighbours. This is made worst when they have the victim consciousness making them to feel that it’s them against the world and carrying this aura anywhere they go. Such people are difficult to live and work with, as they never find anything to be grateful for in life.
They feel the universe owes them and they are always at the forefront of the agitation for some relieve and welfarist schemes to make the society and something outside of themselves better, without first changing something inside of themselves. They may get ahead in life and achieve their dreams, but if you take a close scrutiny of their lives you will see they lack happiness. On the other hand people that truly feel happy about their day and their lives are wonderful people to hang out with. They feel abundance and sometimes this feeling of abundance becomes contagious as they reverberate this love happiness and well-being to the ethers.

This post should be a reminder especially to me to stop and feel the love, goodwill and abundance before I answer the question when the next person I meet on the street ask me how are you feeling today.
Each answer to this question should be a Prayer of Thanksgiving to the universe or God for the many gifts in my life. Remember that if you live for life, and you live for God, God is going to give to you, to give back to the services of life.
