Today has been one of those days where my friends and I woke up with the same symptoms – Punchy Happiness! It was as if the cosmos actually came into alignment for all of us today and put permanent smiles on our faces. As one one friend put it, we all have been “giddy.”
Happy moments come into our lives and what we really need to do is cherish them. For some us these moments may only last the day but for the others it may signal the beginning of many more moments. Sometimes we focus so much of ourselves on the negative aspects of our lives that we forget these happy moments and we forget to turn to memory of them when we need them the most.
I have been feeling as if the daylight has been bursting from within me. Of course, this is also helped by the sunny days that have drenched the bay areas for the past short while. It is the right setting for bringing the Happy out.
So my friends and I are enjoying our Happy moments and draping ourselves with them. It is like running around in our favorite playground together all day long and not wanting the day to end.
The following is a poem by by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Kiss The Earth
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.
