… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.”
— James Thornton
Masters teach that we can experience two completely different states of reality at the same time — from the personality and from the soul.
Author Pema Chödron talks about being hungry, cold and tired but at that same time deeply content. Ram Dass speaks of how the emotional heart can be breaking while we recognize that all is unfolding perfectly.
Allowing our soul to be present with the discomforts of the personality shifts our experience of the discomforts.
“True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing in our lives.”
— Martia Nelson

“Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity.”
-Joseph Addison (1672-1719) British Essayist
Truly spiritual people are light-hearted and filled with joy! They love a good laugh and are the first to share a smile. These are the kinds of people who brighten our day just by showing up. How much we can learn from this! We’re all connected, so it makes sense that if one person is “up” it helps all of us to rise up. Let’s be the person who shines through the clouds today.

It could be hard to sit still today and every little distraction may look more like an invitation to take a break or start the next thing. Get a lot done anyway by concentrating on short tasks and short conversations. A checklist helps keep things smooth and organized. Afterward, maybe take a nice long walk, stretch those legs, and shake the day’s dust off your shoulders.
