The journey we have taken

Every day, God gives us the sun – and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy.

Every day, we try to pretend that we haven’t perceived the moment, that it doesn’t exist – that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow.

But if people really pay attention in their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment.

It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seems the same to us.

But that moment exists – a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles.

Joy is sometimes a blessing, but it is often a conquest.

Our magic moment help us to change and sends us off in search of our dreams. Yes, we are going to suffer, we will have difficult times, and we will experience many disappointments – but all of this is transitory it leaves no permanent mark.

And one day we will look back with pride and faith at the journey we have taken.

  1. So much here … If I underline one piece, it might be regarding joy: “Joy is sometimes a blessing, but it is often a conquest.” It was only in the last two years that I have come to a place where I considered joy a choice. Joy … something to be taken. (Paul? Philippians?) … The idea / theme / reality of journey connects with “Seeker” … Hey, guess what? I was trying to get to your blog today, and something was wrong. It appears that you have a different blog address… Strange that you sent me some encouragement today, while I was trying to figure out where your blog was … I get confused fairly easily. Have a good transition into 2014. Peace, T

    • In the good Book, Joy is very apparent especially Jesus’ teaching. Comparatively speaking, Buddha is directed toward happiness. I choose Joy than happiness. Oh the chance is an UGH! It is still incomplete and I don’t know how it’s affecting the followers. Sorry to confuse you, Me, too! Blessings to you, T. /seeker.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
