No matter what happens, everything is perfect. I'm surrounded by overwhelming love and everything I ever wanted. As I feed my baby girl, she grasps my fingers and our eyes lock. I see her now and I've seen the distant future. The eyes I looked into 40 years from now are the same ones that sparkle back at me today. They are entangled with her smile and nose and cheeks. Together, they melt my heart and show me the love of spirit that created us all.
When my baby boy runs up to me and grabs my legs and looks up at me and smiles from a place of pure joy, I know that all is right in my world. Any wrongs of the day dissolve, unable to withstand the power of his love for me, my love for him, and our love of life itself.
I believe it when they say only love is real. None of us can live here forever but our consciousness cannot dissolve. When we leave here we leave all things behind except love. We will not take our possessions, nor will we take our hatred or grievances. Instead the memory of our true selves returns in a flood, washing away our earthly duality. We will once again know we are all connected as a part of the infinite whole.
As you go through your day, do you find joy? It's right there, but you sometimes have to look for it.
