There's always light at the end of the tunnel, and regardless of what happens, a new day always dawns.  

Underlying everything is Love, and we can always choose to perceive it.  In the darkest days, there's always glimmers of Light.  
Give yourself permission to stop and perceive the beauty of nature.  Feel warmth in your heart for the delicate scent of a flower.  Breathe deep life-giving oxygen and feel your body renewed.  Ground your barefeet into the earth and experience your tension melt away.  Know you are a thread in the great fabric of Life and your unique gifts are needed in this world.
Allow yourself to feel love for the miracle that is your body and appreciation for the Divine gift that is your immune system.  In reverence of this body that allows us to be incarnate on this earth, may we cultivate peace in our lives by doing what is necessary to strengthen our minds, hearts, and bodies at this time.

"Make every effort to stay in a state of Oneness in your mind.  For example, if you're tired, remind yourself that you know what being rested is like. 

Recognize the opposing feeling so that you can know both of them simultaneously.  Do this with any sensation:  If you're depressed, weak, jealous, unloved -- anything -- the antithesis of what you're going through is within your experiential framework. 
Seek the opposite feeling right in the moment and be at one with it in your mind, for this will provide you with a balanced sense of being at peace within yourself.
This is Oneness, wherein you entertain extremes and use your mind to be like the Tao, which never divides anything.  How can Oneness be broken apart?  It would no longer exist if you could split it up."
~Dr. Wayne Dyer

If you want to believe that what your physical eyes can see is all that's there, then fine, you can.  Stay in that small fraction of perceptual reality if you choose.  But at some point, even if that point is at the point of death, we all know better.  I've seen cynics become mystics on their deathbeds.  We are here as though in a material dream, from which the spiritual nature of our larger reality is calling us to awaken.  The magician, the alchemist, the miracle-worker, is simply someone who has woken up to the material delusions of the world and decided to live another way.  In a world gone mad, we can choose to be sane.  In order to move ourselves, and our civilization, into the next phase of our evolutionary journey, it's time for all of us to awaken.
