Sweetness of Contentment

The sweetness of contentment
lies in the sweetness
of this moment

free of the projections of the mind
in a quest for visions
of future success

free of the wanderings of the mind
searching the past
in fear of failure

Can you trust
the orchestrations
of your soul

to provide you
with the sweetness
of contentment

in this moment
and every moment
throughout eternity?

Happy and Content

 

In this moment
I am happy and content
it matters not
what happened
in the moments
that have passed
or the moments
that are yet to come

For this moment
I am happy and content
and I allow this moment
to morph into
another moment
of happiness
and contentment

Herein lies
the potential for
a whole lifetime
sublime Joy.

Secret of Life

The primordial
secret of life
is the joy of existence
once realized
everything else
becomes
superfluous.

Joy of the Soul

Doing
for the sake of
purpose
accomplishment
or success
is the goal
of the human mind.

Doing
for the sake of
experience
feeling
or expressing
is the passion
of the Soul.

The Soul
is as
joyful
and passionate
with inaction
as it is with
taking action.

The Soul needs
no acknowledgment
because
its sustenance
is in the pure joy
of experiencing life
with all its subtle nuances
neither more
or less
important
than another.

To the Soul
every experience
and expression
of life
is sublime joy.

Expressions of Joy

Joy expresses itself in a multitude of ways

for the one who is just coming out of trauma
it can be a flicker of light amidst the darkness

for the one birthing a child
it’s a joyous burst of unconditional love

for the one walking the forest
it’s an appreciation for the beauty of nature

for the one in relationship
it’s the pleasure of sharing with another

for the artist
it’s an infinite array of color

for the musician
it’s an intricate harmony

for the poet
it’s articulated with words

for the mystic
it’s the contentment of being

for the child
it’s the glee of life itself

Joy can be quiet and sublime
Joy can be explosive and exuberant

The ultimate Joy
is when we realize
joy is innate
always present
pulsing through our blood
as the stardust
from which we’ve incarnated.

Allowing the Soul to Lead


Tears of joy flow
with the passion and realization
of living as I have always
intended for this lifetime

It matters not if it is understood by others
it matters not if it is judged by others
it matters not if others are unaware
of who I Am or what I Am doing

For I AM beyond the mind’s capacity
to explain or understand
and it is my Soul
that validates my way of being

It is my Soul that leads the way
enlivened with the joy and contentment
of experiencing life
while in this physical body.

Pleasures of the Soul

What if . . .
we remember the
love
joy
pleasure
and gifts
of every relationship
we have ever experienced

Rather than . . .
holding onto the
sorrow
regrets
bitterness
and pain
of separation
from our original intent?

THIS is how our Soul
views our life
reveling in the pleasure
of every experience
for the pure love of life.

Why not live as the Soul does
savoring the pleasure
of every relationship
every experience
and every nuance of life?

When we live as the Soul does
we realize there is nothing to heal
the earth doesn’t need our healing
humanity doesn’t need our healing
we don’t need healing

All that’s needed is
a change in our perspective
to see as the Soul sees
to experience as the Soul experiences
and to live as the Soul lives
for the pure Love of Life.

Free as a Child

A child is content
to build castles in the sand
knowing they will be washed away
with the next tide,
then returns the following day
to build another
ever more glorious castle.

The wisdom of our own inner child
knows that what it builds today
need not be grasped onto
need not be protected
need not be entombed,
simply lived to the fullest
in this joyous moment.

Ah, to be the child
with our dreams and creations
enjoying them to the fullest
with playful delight
in this present moment
then allowing them to return
to the infinite sea of creation.

Ah, to be the child again
living life
joyously, freely, openly
knowing we are infinite beings.

You Are Here

It doesn’t matter how you got here
the path is insignificant
because
you are here now
as the radiance of Love and Joy
And All Is well.

Rest in the Bliss

It’s important to rest awhile
in the bliss of the moment,
rather than rush on past
in search of the next one.
