Is there enough silence in our lives to see life as a blessing? To see ourselves as a blessing? The beauty of our world is the first witness to blessing!!
All creation, including ourselves, were brought forth from the world of the invisible by some primal kindness. To have been born out of nothingness is a blessing and nothing short of love! The only right response is returning the blessing through our gestures of kindness, love and gratitude. Such a response is a wholehearted Smile On life as a mother would smile on her newborn child.
When we behold the presence of others that have blessed our lives with their encouragement, kindness, enthusiasm and love we see how blessed our lives have become. To see the beauty and wonder in creation, and to be a part of this beauty leaves us speechless and can bring us to our knees. When we see the world, and ourselves, with the eyes of our heart we see nothing but the blessing within and around us. The only right response to such a blessing, that our heart knows is true, is to share our gift of life to the world with love. To willingly Smile On any aspect of life from our heart is to bless life.
Smile On is a way of love calling us to: empty ourselves of our habitual beliefs, thoughts and judgements, to open our hearts to see life with the eyes of the heart; and, to connect with our Inner Witness that sees with eyes of love.
In the poem “The Secret Sits” written by Robert Frost he leaves the reader to discover what he is referring to when he writes ‘the Secret’.
The Secret Sits
We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.
It is in the heart where we really want to sit, rest, and to be. It is here that we can see clearly and respond to life in the way that is real. It is here that we discover that we are blessed and that we can offer blessing to the world.
Smile On life awakens us to the blessing of life and brings us, even it be for a moment, to a place where love is real and where happiness will find us.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential to the invisible eye” Antoine de Saint-Exupery from ‘The Little Prince'
Smile On with Love!
