The wonder and beauty of Life in this section of the Cosmos is that it is all connected with Love. I’m not sure how It works in the other sections. I hope to understand It all someday. In the meantime, I’ll cultivate gratitude for the endless blessings that daily come my way.
A lot of people seem to be short on gratitude. Plenty of ego out there. However, we seem to be short on gratitude. Why is that? I don’t know, but ego could eliminate gratitude, and vice versa.
Gratitude could commence with a pure, joyous, fearless love of Life. With that foundation a thousand opportunities for gratitude would rise up in daily living, I feel sure. I’m certainly looking forward to it.
In the meantime, I’ll be spending my time attempting to out maneuver my ego, that cunning rascal, who pops up everywhere I appear.
G-d damn him to Sausalito, and I say that with all due respect. If you are wise and kind, ego will eventually serve the good with its own dissolution.
It’s always reassuring to remember that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us. The center, foundation and essence of spiritual life, is subjective meditation. Herein lies the answer to world peace, if you have any questions about that. It all starts, and ends, with I; and there is no I. There is no ego as well. Go figure. Maybe it is all Maya. And then again, maybe It’s just an illusion. Who knows?
Send in those letters and post cards with your answers. There may be prizes, but don’t count on it. If you’re happy, content, at peace, creatively active, socially fulfilled, evolving emotionally and sexually viable, what’s your problem? If you’re not, never mind those cards and/or letters.
