So why are we here on this luscious planet? And why are so many of us making such a hash of it – the planet and our lives?
We’ve had at least 2,000 years of pain and suffering. So over. So 20th century. We are here for Joy. To learn, to grow, to give our gifts to our fellow travelers, to love. And to live in Joy, ease and comfort.
I know it doesn’t always feel like that! : > But deciding it does, and being Joy-full with everyone you meet goes a long way to changing that.
We really do have a choice – to live in fear or live in love. A lot of our current turmoil (have you noticed that it is indeed easing?) comes directly from the behavior of those clutching their fear to their chests, refusing to let go, creating more and more outlandish reasons to be scared. Banning these huge guns is the same as destroying our second amendment rights? Takes a lot of work to believe that in the face of those sweet babies in Newtown.
And yet – we have to love the fearful as we love ourselves. It’s in the Bible. But it’s also written in our hearts. Love is the power, love is the change. Love is the Joy! xoxox
