I seek lightness of being.
I seek to carry only gratitude, love and joy whereever I go.
And then I forget.
Life happens and I become mired down in its grubbiness, forgetting my divine essence as I struggle to overcome life’s daily existence.
I heard a story yesterday that made me wonder about our humanity.
I wanted to cry. To throw my hands up in despair and cry out, “Oh humanity. What are we doing?”
I wanted to run and hide. To forget about ‘the world’ and crawl into myself.
And then I remembered.
This is not what my life is. This petty, squabbling, ‘little’ me.
My life is the sunshine warm upon my face. My heart overflowing with joy. My spirit light and carefree.
I have the power to be present in this moment, regardless of how fierce the winds blowing around me.
I have the power to stand in Love.
Quiet my mind.
And become one with this moment in which I am connected to all things, all beings, all goodness.
There are storms in this world.
Here is beauty.
There is ugliness in this world.
Here is kindness.
There is sadness in this world.
Here is joy.
Which path will I choose to follow?
Where will I choose to shine my light?
