seeing the good

Today is it my intention to see the good in what is before me.2014-10-16 17.28.40

The blue sky is easy to see the good in. Sometimes people, memories, circumstance crowd in and not so easy. This morning, in my duel home present convergence I looked in vain for my external hard drive. I felt freak out escalating. and then I stopped. Oh, this is not in keeping with my intention of the day…So. What’s good about this?   I noted to myself how wonderful it was that in even had a hard drive. That I knew what one was, that I have a computer, that I get to say hi to all you so easily, that the hard drive was somewhere, and even if it totally dissappeared, is life still something to smile about? indeed!…a cascade of gratefulness made me smile and then laugh and then laugh some more. oh, what I do!

Seeing the good in this moment is wonderful exercise of joyous momentum.

One thought on “seeing the good

    On “seeing the good” – I’ve been reading and rereading a lot of John Muir recently. His exultant joy is infectious. He is my gateway to the “transcendentalist authors”. He reminds me to slow down and notice everything that’s around me. To take it all in. To notice the beauty and the joy in the simple fine small moments. The small voices of nature that speak with deeper meaning, if I can only remember.
    “This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere, the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in turn, as the round earth rolls.”
