Nessuno e Sagia da maggio, a maggio. No one is wise all the time.
Today walking along the Vallejo waterfront in a cool sunny day I realized once again that the keys to happiness are to allow it to arise naturally.
I must prepare my ground.
Not tilling. Not digging. No furrows. No trellises. No rows to hoe. Just leaving things be until the time and place are ripe for seeds to be scattered.
The seeds I want to scatter are;
Contentment: Being aware that everything in my life is given or presented to me for my own good.
Sufficiency: I lack nothing. I am bidden to accept my life as it is.
Adequacy: As I stand on the earth today I am able to see that the above two views are the opportunity (The Field), for me to practice being still, and seeing things as they really are. All is One. All is Different.
Within those seeds are the potentials within me to help or to hinder. The more I help, the more fertile the ground the above seeds are sown on and a beautiful weed (It’s a weed because I didn’t deliberately plant it.) sprouts and starts to grow with pleasing flowers and fragrance. That weed is Happiness.
I notice that Happiness is not composed of The Most Beautiful Flowers in the World, or the Headiest Fragrance Ever.
Rather, it is just pleasing; all the way around. In every aspect and facet. It is Contentment, Sufficiency & Adequacy…
A revelation that keeps on giving and if I can view it correctly; enough.
