A Letter to me from my greater
Self upon awakening.
All my life I have been
making choices; now finally understanding those choices
truly created my world.
All the suffering and
all the Joy I have experienced were the fruits, grown
from the seeds of my thoughts.
Today is a new dawn and
with the rising of the sun rises my Joy, here to stay.
This is my choice, the choice of the ages whereby
man gains reunion with his whole Self and radiates
the Joy and Love as the Son He is.
Clouds gather and raindrops
fall as tears of Happiness. The earth smiles back
as flowers and babies laughing, lovers gazing and
saints weeping in bliss.
Where have I been all
these years, wandering from choice to choice as though
any counted other than this one, finally made; to
choose Joy? Beckoning rainbows, murmuring streams,
crazy dreams all leading the way.
What is it that calls
the heart home? Why do we choose suffering as the
path to Joy?
Only Infinite Mercy could
be such a gentle teacher.
How can a simple human
heart contain so much Joy and not know it?
It’s as if it hides beneath
a wound so deep that only sadness can uncover it.
I choose Joy, now and
forever. As dark follows light, so does pain follow
Joy, but the Sun always rises and the darkness is
May I ever be grateful
for the Light and Joy. May I never forget to be grateful
to the dark and the pain that led me here.
My brothers and sisters
are still hiding behind, in the shadows, looking for
May I forever be a flickering
beacon, leading them surely to their own bright day
in the Son of Joy.
Here, in this simple
choice of Joy lies my beginning, and my end.
