“One Minute Wisdom”
Why is everyone here so happy except me?
“Because they have learned to see goodness and beauty everywhere,”
Said the Master.
Why don’t I see goodness and beauty everywhere?
“Because you cannot see outside of you
what you fail to see inside.”
By Anthony de Mellow
Being a happy person in a world filled with so much discord is hard work. Not because happiness is difficult to achieve. The hard part is keeping the ugliness from snatching that goodness away from us.
No one can make anyone see what they don’t want to see. However, asking the question why and how is a first step. Than the longing for that understand unlocks the doors within, and the miracles begin to happen. I know that I can’t have one foot in heaven and the other in the world without feeling the divide that it creates, but I can be an instrument in helping Heaven to meet with earth. Everyday I can’t wait to see what God has to show me next, and in turn all I want to do is share that goodness with others.
