Happiness And Joy Is A Perspective
Something happened tonight.
The smoke cleared and the mirrors of my life reflected perfection.
I’ve been having trouble with my romantic relationship because of my perspective on the long-term aspect of things. Somehow, somewhere along our path, I began placing way more attention on all the differences between my partner and me than all the similarities. Somehow, somewhere along our path, I lost sight of my joy and gratitude and was shrouded in lack’s ugly veil.
Over and over again tonight, I was presented with clarity of insight into how well we get along and what a truly amazing person I’ve ended up with.
You see that?
Recently I’ve caught myself saying, “ended up with,” as if I’ve no choice in the matter. Right here, right now, I’m making the choice that from hereon out I will replace the phrase with: “I am choosing to be with.”
So wow, what a truly amazing person I am choosing to be with. I mean seriously. It’s SO good!
We share such similar perspectives on so many topics of conversation, we live so well together, it’s almost unbelievable. And the amount of love we share seems untouchable from this perspective.
I like this perspective.
Tonight it hit me like a ton of bricks. I again realized this is the man I want to spend my life with. It felt just like the first time I realized it—one month after we first started dating over two years ago—like I was gifted a best friend with which to spend my life.
Right now I feel like doing a jig and singing Ren & Stimpy’s “Happy Happy Joy Joy.”
So I will:
I guess this short video reminds me how important it is to embrace our emotions wherever we’re at in the moment.
Suffering definitely comes when we resist what IS.
But it also comes when we look through only one eye. An imbalance in perception creates an imbalance in our reality. It’s harder to face what IS when we’re seeing with tunnel vision.
Tonight I saw the whole picture and witnessed the abundance of likeness between us as people, which greatly outweighs our differences.
I can accept who and where we are as individuals, thus eliminating my suffering and relaxing into the joy created by acceptance of what IS.
LOVE TO ALL
