Do You See Beauty?

by Dreama Vance

Do you see the beauty in life?

Is your heart filled with the glory that shines from living life with joy?

Does peace reside in your heart?

I-Love-LifeI LOVE LIFE!

Yes, it is true that most of us would rather be alive than not, but I am talking about loving LIFE… Life that is bigger than us… Life that runs like a river through everything that we are.

Life that burns as a passion within us. Life that expresses as Nature in every harvest of bounty; in every color of sunset. Life that swirls through the spirals of galaxies and carries the tiny bee on his wings from flower to flower.

This love of Life goes deep into the spirit. It encompasses in a very real way all that is.

It explores new levels of consciousness and carries us to new ways of being.

This love of Life vibrates throughout our being.

Are you living in this joy? Do you see the beauty? Can you recall at least two times this week when you were “zinged” by Cupid’s arrow of Joy or Love of Life?

If this is not happening in your experience at least once or twice a week, then are you Living Life?

Awareness and awakening are happening all the time! Take part! Change your life so that you may experience a heart bursting with this joy and love of life.

It IS possible.

I know because I have been experiencing this for several years now. It is a byproduct of growth. How do you get there? It is the result of two important keys:

1. The willingness to listen, and

2. The determination to change.

These are not necessarily easy, but they are simple.

Many people do not have the ability to hear words of wisdom. At an advanced retreat on Qigong, I almost fell out of my seat laughing when my Chinese teacher jokingly said, “…except for Americans, you can’t tell them anything. They all think they know everything.” I am not so sure it is just Americans, since I have found his words to be true of many.

It takes an intention to come to any teaching with your cup empty. In other words, you must come with the intention to listen and to open your heart to hear the deeper meaning.

One of my favorite spiritual teachers said he never worried about his teachings being too advanced in his books because the ideas would simply fly over the heads of those not ready to hear.

Have you ever picked up a spiritual book, or even any book that challenges the status quo, read a bit and put it down because you thought the writer was an idiot? Then some time later you picked up the book again, devoured it and thought the writer was brilliant?

This has to do with our ability to hear or to listen to what another has to say. We must have the intention to open up to new and different ways of hearing and seeing. At a deeper level we must be willing to grow our beliefs and change.

The determination to change requires action. The type of action is determined by the direction you choose to go.

The choice is always yours…

Choose to Love Life!
