Consider the moments when all is just as it should be, when the world seems to be perfect, when a cup of tea is enjoyed quietly empty-headed, when life’s beauty lies peacefully ahead in it’s absolute perfection. What if those moments are chosen as reality and all else is seen as illusion, a deception, a prelude to pain and suffering?
Removing the demands of self from the center of its personal universe is when eyes can be opened to a Divine Presence. Hearts swell in communal joys. Together, when joyful souls engage by pools of cool waters, in fields of green grass and lilies, with blessings of a life lived quietly, there the path of eternity is realized.
Although those moments of peace are sometimes fleeting, they become deeply etched and worthy of devotional pursuit. Then the pleasures and pains of earthly illusions will pale when compared to a life lived in awe of soulful excursions into truth’s reality.
Just a glimpse – of the joy and peace which a magnanimous Creator has intended to be enjoyed always in every moment, every word, every thought.
