Choose Joy…

Laughter...

Laughter… (Photo credit: leodelrosa…)

Have you seen the TV ad where the guy is standing on the sidewalk in his work suit, a car driving by splashes him… he laughs.  He’s on the escalator going to his office, getting off he takes his hand off the rail to find a wad of gum stuck to his hand…he laughs.  He sits down at this desk, spills his coffee onto his computer, which sizzles and smokes…he laughs.  No matter what happens he is not bothered.  In this commercial it’s because he’s so happy about some car deal he got, but it’s a great story.  What if we could have that kind of inner happiness that no matter what happened we could just laugh about it because what we have is so much greater than any problem?  Because this is true.

When we meditate we begin to access that kind of inner power.  The power to choose joy in any circumstance.  And we begin to see that that is the only real choice.  Nothing else makes any sense.  How can we be anything but joyful when we are connected to Infinite Joy?  How can anything ever upset us when we know that God is right here in our lives?  Next time you see yourself getting caught by upset, anger, annoyance, any negative emotion see if you can remember who you are… and then just laugh about the problem…and choose joy.

Before I die I will…

I recently saw this sign just off 118 Ave, and it made me stop and think for a while…a long while…and it made me realize how amazing people are and how talented.  I love driving down the street and seeing the sides of buildings covered with huge murals or painted boxes and posts…amazing art work.

This sign brought my mind to a sudden stop.  So big a message in such a few words.  Before I die I will… And instead of going off on another track as it usually does, this time my mind just hovered there for a while, feeling the depth of these five words.

Before I die I will… leave a significant positive mark upon the earth.

How about you?
