The Ride of a Lifetime
If you can look out the window in the morning and see the sun shining on leaves, isn't this enough for happiness? What more is it that you must have?
If you can look up and see the blue sky with drifts of clouds, what can be missing from your life?
If you can see, what is there that you must demand?
If you can be, why then is your heart not fulfilled?
It seems to Me that you rush past the moment of wonder on your way to an important meeting that you cannot be late for.
I have to ask you, beloveds, what is more important than the sun, the leaves, and the sky? What is more important than your simple Being?
Let these be enough, and every day will be spoken for, and every day will be a millennium. The juice of every day will be wrung from it. There will be fulfillment, all from the little thing of looking out the window or up at the sky above.
There is a God in Heaven, and there is the same God on Earth. Is there something more you need to be admitted to?
Walk right in where you are right now. Walk right up to your life and embrace it. This is life, beloveds. This is your life and it is Mine. If there is anything missing, it is you who is missing from it. You are passing it by.
Now, right at this moment, turn on your life as you would streetlights. Light up your own life by noticing the daily gifts it gives to you.
The sun is shining or it is raining. The sun is shining brightly or it is getting cloudy. Think, think, Beloveds, of the world you live in. There is even an occasional rainbow to mark your days. There is heat and there is cold. There is water and there is thirst. There are oceans and there are deserts. There are forests and there are plains. There are colors, a whole range of them. There is music and songs to be discovered.
There are breezes and there are gales. There is stillness and there are sultry days.
What has been left out of life that you feel deprived of it? What more is there for you to want when this beautiful creation has been laid out for you?
Think of the animals and the wealth of their gifts. Think of flowers. Don't forget flowers. Even vegetables are flowers before they are vegetables.
Think of Oneness, and what else is there to think about?
When your plate is full and you have eaten, what is there to be hungry about?
What can be missing from your life unless you have run past it? Perhaps you have been on your way to somewhere, and you went right past it.
Now be sure to notice life as you run to wherever you are running to. Notice the sounds of your footfall. Notice the sound of children at play. Notice the sound of the wind, and notice the silence when there is no wind.
Notice the sound of raindrops, and notice how they fall on the leaves that greet the sun just as easily.
Are you perhaps fussy about life? Have you forgotten what you already have before you as you reach out for more? Have more, beloveds. Have all of life that you want. At the same time, don't skim over the basics. Don't skim over the milk of life nor skip over the bread of life nor skip past the motor of life. The motor is running. If life is a bus, it is a bus for you to jump on. Jump on. Have the ride of a lifetime. Come with Me today.
