WHAT YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR IS WHAT YOU ARE SEARCHING WITH
You know what? I really don't understand why we as human beings have to make things so darned complicated when in reality(or should I say my reality) things are really relatively simple. Most of us seem to think that if something is too simple then it can't possibily mean to much. And for things to have deeper meaning it must be really complicated to get to the truth. And even though I have convinced myself that things really are simpl;e in this life I still find myself complicating things when it is entirely unneccessary to do so. Just like the title of todays entry implies simplicity I know it can seem complicated. But if one will think about it without any preconceived ideas or notions I believe they can see the truth in this title.I think we all ,on some part of our conscious or subconscious level , desire to know who we are, why are we here, where did we come from, where are we going,etc etc. And the closer we get to the answers we seek the further away they seem at times. But as I see things ,our thoughts, our inner desires ,and deepest inner beliefs are the things that bring each experience into our daily lives.And if the thing we seek truly is the thing we seek with then understanding this should give us the material to change our lives in whatever way we choose. Of course there are lots of variables in life that cause us to change our ways and even our beliefs as we continue to grow in spiritual enlightenment. I love the old movie "The Wizard of Oz." As many of you know the characters in this movie set out upon the Yellow Brick Road in search of the thing they thought they needed to find joy and happiness in life. And in the end they all discover they already had the thing they needed even before setting one foot forward on the Brick Road. They just had to be shown how to remember what they already knew. What a great metaphor for our own lives right now.My sincerest hope and prayer for each of us is that we all can plainly realize that we are OK right now right here and that all we need do is to rediscover or remember that we are made in the Spirit of Life with everything built in so we can enjoy every moment of the journey. I kindly ask from each of you that the first chance you have you can do a random act of kindness for another.It doesn't have to be something on a grand scale nor does it have to cost you anything. Maybe a phone call to an old friend, a letter or email to someone you havent talked with in awhile, or holding open the door for the next person coming or going. Or just a sincere smile at the person sitting next to you on the bus etc etc. Im sure you get the picture. Not only will these acts of kindness help the other person feel better it should also help you feel lots better about yourself. Please do this often and let me know how you feel after a few weeks. Take care my friends and may the sun shine down your way. "HUGS" to all.
