Happy New Year

Happiness is where we begin, not something we’ve earned at the end. We get to be happy now, right in the midst of it all as it unfolds.

Happiness is not selfish, nor is it at the expense of others. (If my neighbor is suffering, I can’t truly be happy.) Happiness involves caring about and for others, while not forgetting our own selves.

So these are the kinds of resolutions I will make this New Year:

Yuletide blessings

Local church billboard that says a long time ago in a galilee far far away jesus our saviour was born

A billboard that I see on my drive into town. Light and shadow playing on the landscape out my window. House wrapped just before subzero temperatures arrived. A winter driveway that takes my breath away every time I turn down it. Bunny tracks on the deck. Joyful yard decorations. The addition of This Daughter.

Just a few of the many blessings I have this season.

What are you blessed by during this time?

Dwelling in Spirit

Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong, will.”

Spirit’s Law says, “Anything that can go right, will.”

Once we start noticing all the things that are going right, that is all we are going to see.

Have a beautiful day!

I see you.

Dreams, not deficiencies

Is there something in your life that you are dissatisfied with? Do you wish for more, in some area?

If you’re looking through the lens of possibility, these are called dreams. And they’re awesome.

On the other hand, if you are lookng at those same things as problems, they’re called deficiencies. And now they’re painful.

It’s absolutely good to want more. To grow. To expand. But to focus on the fact that you don’t have it, rather than on the joy you will feel from it, misses the entire point.

Which is to feel good about the things we want and why we want them, as we move toward them. (And if you think about it, they pretty much all boil down to love, joy, happiness, and peace. What an awesome state for all!)

So how does a divine soul having a human experience (PS, that’s each one of us) begin to move toward this?

Which state do you live in?

If we’re trying to solve problems, we will be given problems to solve.

We will live in problem state.

If we’re curious and hold a state of wonderment, we will be given possibilities to explore.

We will live in possibility state.

The thing is, our externals haven’t really changed — we have.

And now, so has our actual reality.

Still wondering about this? Here’s a thought experiment:
