Treading lightly the path to enlightenment.

Constant of Joy

Sunset Moonrise

Someone asked about happiness.

“Can you be truly happy if you are alone?”

I replied as follows:

For me, there is peace. It’s not so much about happy or sad, really. Life is a long, long road for most, and it is bound to be pock-marked with tragedy, sadness, loss and boredom as well as elation, excitement, gains and triumphs.

Having come to understand my place in the cosmos, my perspective has become one of simple reality. Like so many other beings on this planet, my existence is but a flash in the context of the universe. This existence, by its very nature, will be visited by laughter, joy, pain and sorrow in varying measures, until my light goes out. It is the knowing that all things here are transient that brings peace. Cherish the highs and endure the lows, and it’s gone before we know it.

I feel I am never alone. Wherever I go the Great Cosmos is all around me. I am a part of it as a grain of sand is a part of the beach. I feel comforted, secure. In constant company. And it is this that brings me joy (happiness) always.

Any place, any time, the Cosmos assures me, “I’m right here.”.

 

Seek peace,

 

Paz

  1. absolutely beautiful-and I am almost an empty nester. I have raised 5 children and it has taken most of my adult life. I am also single, I miss my children, but like you, I know I am not alone-and never really will be.

    • Thanks so much for the note.
      Yet another alignment in our stars, we raised five children, too!
      They are a blessing in our later lives, I cherish every moment.

      Seek peace, (though it sounds like you’ve found it)

      Paz

  2. It is a true blessing when we can feel the loving presence of the Cosmos. I have always been lucky enough to feel that presence too. A beautiful post Paz :o)
