“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” – Buddha
Wow!! I truly feel blessed in this moment! The realization overtakes me … suddenly bringing deep feelings usually tied to more traditional, emotionally touching life scenes. But here I sit waiting for a plane able to whisk me back to home and friends … sipping on a coffee … listening to music over a phone able to guide me on streets and touch the world web … and I clearly see and “feel” that in this instant I couldn’t be healthier, more complete, or more filled with joy. Wow … such a bright, brilliant light of joy whose boundary reaches no farther than the skin surrounding this humble body of many years. Yes … the brightness pours from within and clearly needs nothing more than me listening for the song from my senses.
Yes … I’m returning to a city ravaged by flame, bills to pay, and life to sort out day-by-day … but in this moment and instant I’m overwhelmed with all that I have in this moment. I can’t ignore that my life is so very rich. So I celebrate it … !!! And though it’s a party of only one, the sounds and feelings truly move my senses like any other festive event. My rich life … my good fortune … my moment and all it offers. Whoo-Hoo …!!!!
