WORDS LIKE LIGHT
Wednesday, July 27, 2022
Today, like all days, I will simply be a ripple in the boundless ocean of the universe – and I hope I can be a grateful one. Indeed, why wouldn’t I be grateful – undulating along, like I am, in a soft and sympathetic cosmos? Each moment, a new little wave rolls ‘me’ along, and what I call ‘me’ is actually the wave itself, a brand new ripple in the ever-flowing sea of life. What’s really wonderful is that this sea has no boundaries, no limits, and therefore neither will I as I roll and tumble along today. Even if sadness or distress appears, each moment of consciousness will be as vast as an ocean, and each thought will be thoroughly fresh, a never-before-seen ruffle in the boundless mind of life. Wondering where these thoughts come from is like wondering where waves in an ocean come from. Instead of speculating and analyzing, maybe I should just be amazed – and grateful – moment after moment, in sorrow or gladness, as life ripples along and takes me for an endless, always surprising ride.
SEEKING HARMONY If you seek harmony, you can get help from the happiness of trees balancing themselves with winds of all kinds, and from the fun flowers have in swaying together in harmonious ways. You could easily fit yourself into the tuneful flow of moments as they ripple along, and the lyrical roll of sorrows with delights and disappointments with successes can carry you along in friendly fellowship. Harmony has a way of staying with you, like vastness always stays with the sky. Seek harmony, yes, and be sure to smile when you see that it's always here.
