Happy and at Ease! What does that mean to you?
To me it means that no matter what is happening in my world or the world at large I can educe joy and happiness from within.
It means I need not worry about the things going on around me. Since the world is a reflection of me and my thoughts all I need do is shift my way of thinking to that of happiness and ease followed up with some action toward those ideals.
This could be considered a wound and a gift.
It’s a little unnerving to know or just think that it’s my responsibility to change my world and that I cannot blame my problems and circumstances on anyone else. It’s very empowering to know that inherently I have everything I need to actually overcome my challenges and change my circumstances and not just my world but the whole world!
My daily goal is to behave with kindness, dignity and respect; reveal my highest, best self and teach others how to do the same. I’m happy to be on this journey of hope for a better world, starting with me.
