The rain stops. Land and ocean reawaken. Over the ocean sky opens to the blue beyond. Sunlight picks out the white, green and brown cliffs of Rathlin Island. A cloud's dark grey shadow moves imperceptibly across these colourful cliffs. The air sings with cascading sounds of breakers on the beach, as the blue ocean sparkles and shimmers in the distance.
Your Potential Is Full Of Joy
I am just back from my morning walk along the beach. My face is glowing with the warm fresh air. The ocean was overflowing with beauty in the July sunshine.
I was amazed at the bird, which simply dropped out of the upper branch of a beach side tree and fell in a controlled swoop, opening its wings fully before landing. She was an interesting colour, a blue grey and black. She was with her mate. The mate found a piece of shiny silver wrapping paper, picked it up and hopped over a tuft of grass to examine his new discovery.
How many of us love life enough to find joy in simple things, the flight of a bird, the smile on a friends face, the silvery whiteness of frost on the grass. Most of us are far too pre-occupied.
Many people look forward to find joy. They look for joy in holidays, dates, parties, a new car or Christmas day. Of course we can and do find joy in these, but joy can be much more than an occasional experience, interspersed with drabness. Joy is all around.
Exploring our potential helps us to go beyond our pre-occupations. Following our star helps to heal our worries, anxieties, fears, ambitions, strivings, comparisons, addictions and our continual need to turn everything over in our minds. When we go beyond all this we see things as they truly are, in all their glorious simplicity.
Joy is the natural state for human beings. Joy is an inevitable outcome of healing. We know we are making progress when we find a spontaneous joy arising in our hearts for no apparent reason. This is the joy that has no cause.
This is the joy that is present when we have love in our hearts.
