    The joy of being

    Living in joyful harmony with life is not that difficult at all. What can be difficult is getting away from the negative patterns that have become so comfortable and familiar.

    It helps when you can remind yourself often of who you are and who you are not. You are not your problems or your pleasures, and are not the collection of material objects and concerns that surround you.

    You are the awareness that can find meaning and bring out purpose in it all. You are the experience of being alive and the wisdom that is able to rise above the commotion.

    The negativity you wish to escape is with you only as long as you hold on to it. Can you choose to let it fall cleanly away from you?

    Of course you can, and the question to ask yourself is this. When will you?

    Remember that you are more than anything that could bring you down. Let go, and let the joy of being rise peacefully to the surface.
