To live of love it is to sail afar
And bring both peace and joy where’er I be.
0 Pilot blest! love is my guiding star;
In every soul I meet, Thyself I see.
Safe sail I on, through wind or rain or ice;
Love urges me, love conquers every gale.
High on my mast behold is my device:
“By love I sail!”
by of poem by St. Therese of Lisieux
Look at me!
Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to have fun
But you have
to know how.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity. ~ Carl Jung
The psychologist, Carl Jung, points out that we learn about the essential good things of life by their absence. How often have you and I heard, or said, “If I only knew?” Or, “It feels so good, to feel so good again?”
What lessons has life taught you about its essential good things when they were missing from your life?
I’ve learned many lessons. Among them, never lose a moment to share my love is at the top of my list.
There is a day of sunny rest
For every dark and troubled night;
And grief may hide an evening guest,
But joy shall come with early light.
And joy is everywhere; it is in the earth’s green covering of grass; in the blue serenity of the sky.
