Do you ever stop to consider just how you view the world? I mean, do you think that you see it in the same way that others do? Or do you think that each of us is the author of a unique perspective?
We obviously carry with us different opinions of the way things ought to work. Our political, cultural and religious ideas are certainly diverse. We have conflicts – even wars – over such differences. Is there truly a spiritual battle raging between the forces of good and evil? Or is it imagined?
Wow! Life sometimes seems complicated and hard. But then there are times when it seems so awfully simple and clean, when the lines of life are curved and continuous. Think of the softness of a newborn child, a dew drop, a single line of inspired music, a poem, the wind and the waves. These are the thoughts that might put your mind back on the right path, the thoughts that clear distortions and speak of a grand design and a higher purpose. The spirit of Joyous Gard calls you to at times consider the simplicity of life and the uncomplicated harmony that makes life feel free and easy.
Day 16 Guide
Living is a pumping of sorts – a pumping between conflict and resolution. Hurdles and complications are necessary tensions. But there is also resolution and relief. Don’t get caught trudging up the hills with no plan for retreat to inner castle of Joyous Gard.
