How do you view the world? Is it for you a place of freshness and unlimited opportunity? Or is it stale and unrewarding? Are you dissatisfied with a tomorrow that may in many ways be much like today? I think it’s common for many people to feel restless, wanting somehow for life to step forward and deliver her treasure. But that view leads to disappointment. Happiness demands that you first take the step forward.
Tomorrow is only a destination in time, and the best that one can hope for is the opportunity to continue being human — to learn, laugh, and love. The spirit of Joyous Gard is a “building” spirit that desires daily improvement. Consider your time here on earth to be a precious opportunity to enjoy the simple beauty of being alive, and take advantage of your most human capacity, to think.
