“If we can pay attention to things that really matter, there a revolution starts.”– Robin Wall Kimmerer
I always liked blogging on Friday, partly because I could end with my favorite intention. “Have the very best weekend of your life.”
So even though I sent out a post earlier this week (in case you didn’t notice, I have no schedule or agenda for these posts), I thought I’d send out this tiny little reminder that even when it feels like your life sucks the big one, there is an inner light and an inner joy still going on within you.
I know this is hard to believe, ridiculous even according to the cultural Kool-aid we’ve all been gulping. But it’s true. That inner pilot light is always present.
Yes, our sacred gift of attention has been hijacked to pay attention to problems, products and other people’s agendas. But if we turn our attention ever so slightly, catch a tiny glimpse of that inner light, we’ll see that we remain as the Course promises, “as life created us.”
The inner light, the inner joy cannot be extinguished. Clouds can cover it. Our focus on others’ agendas can obscure it.
But it’s always, always, always there.
Remember this news flash as you go out and “have the very best weekend of your life.”
