You begin so EXCITED, aware and grateful. The sun somehow hangs there in the sky. The little bird sings. The world is rosy and everyone is beautiful. We are curious about our world and strive to be a part of it. Life is so
good. We do not have a sense of foreboding but embrace the unknown as a part of the great awakening. Then you stump your toe. Suddenly, in the middle of your pain, the world is reduced to your bruised little toe. Now for a few days it hurts to walk. With every step you take, you are reminded of your poor little toe. Your vigilance becomes: Which defines your day..the pinch you feel as you walk or the miracle of life still happening?
It is the giving over to smallness that opens us up to misery. In truth we begin by taking nothing for granted, grateful to be alive, to smell the roses and to inhale and exhale. Yet in the middle of our living, our focus narrows and we become angry in a diner because the eggs are runny or the waitress counted the change wrong. When we narrow our focus, we see problems in everything, and we assume the worst.
Worse….we spread it. Be the peace and truth you want to see in the world.
Wishing you love and light!
