JOY AND FREEDOM BEAUTY IS EVERYWHERE!
I was at the Chicago Art Institute yesterday and so inspired by the beauty of the art, the people looking at the art, the kindness and respect of folks enjoying this sharing together. Just amazing. But what touched me most was outside the art institute in
No different than invoking “wonder twin powers” to change the form of yourself into something else but in this case the change is mentally how we think about a person, situation or thing. You wave your wand and presto!! The way you think about it changes your response, your emotions and your reality. The sutra reads formally “when understood as illusory (Maya), nature (seen) and her attributes the gunas exist to serve the Divine Self (seer) with both enjoyment and liberation.” Our nature in other words is to be happy. This is our way of being. The illusion is to delude ourselves into believing that we want things to be different all the time and are in this state of stuckness. Nope, no need to preoccupy ourselves like that. Instead be with what is and wave your wand turn all things into joy. Turn some bread and cheese into a party! See that beauty is everywhere inside you, outside you and in all things (difficult or sweet). Love your day! Silvia
