"Way beyond words is the heart. Fortunately, it's so close."
(Happy Musings is a newspaper feature syndicated by King Features that I create each day to remind us all that “Life is wonderful!.”
It is now that seems to be difficult. It is now that seems to be messy. It used to be before that people thought times were difficult, but now it's now.
People are scrambling to find a safe haven. They are gathering their goods and loved ones and holding on. They are fearful of a future that is not here but pretends to be here and is forecast to be coming.
People are hopeful that their world as they have known it will not end. They need hope. They need direction. They need help. No one who is in charge is really in charge, but they are looking for someone to be in charge who will fix it.
Sometimes it cannot be fixed. It can only be lived through. And the best way to live through anything is -- happily.
Where in the world can people turn for hope, for stability, for peace? Within! That's the only place of true solace. That's the only place of true joy.
Now, how to get there is the trick. Try this: Release all that you see -- by closing your eyes and being in a peaceful mode. Release all that you hear -- by being in a quiet space. Release all that you know -- by being in a humble state. Release all that you want -- by being in a grateful place.
Then enter the heart. That's home. That's where you are loved. That's where you are at peace. That's where you know you belong. That's home now and forever. Once there, never leave.
You may open your eyes. You may move into noisy spaces. You may listen to lofty words. You may feel needs. But never leave home. It is the only place where you can help yourself and in turn help others. It is the place of true understanding, true gratitude, true rest. Never leave home. Home never leaves you.
Remember, way beyond words is the heart. Be glad it's so close!
“Life is wonderful! Don’t forget it.”
