I have an insight I would like to share with you for the New Year. While walking on the beach yesterday enjoying a most magnificent day, I just happen to glance over at some condos that sit right by the beach. It was January 8th and most Christmas decorations have been removed, however I noticed a sparkling word glistening in the sunlight ... it was "JOY".
As I walked, I reflected on that word ... "JOY". The question came to mind ... when do I feel most connected to God/Spirit/All That Is ... and the simple answer came,
When I am in "JOY". Those simple moments when I am relaxed and just having fun ... might be dancing, embracing someone that I deeply love, a moment taken to reach down and pet that dog whose tail is wagging madly just inviting me to take a moment to say "Hi". Oridinary moments that I might not recognize because of their fleeting nature, but as I reflect on them they do bring me a sense peace and connection to something greater than myself.
So, I invite you to reflect on those moments of "JOY" in your life and to take the opportunity of creating many more of them in the coming year. Who knows what will happen when we have great numbers of people living in "JOY"!
