If I had a magic wand I’d wave it all over my body, magically ordering it to relax and begin to accept all the good and the bad life has to throw at me
I would want to treat it all with equanimity.
It would be no easy task. I’d have years and years of crud to remove from my outer shell and mask that I wear. I’ve developed such a steel armor that I’d need a helluva can-opener to cut through me. Using the warmth of my heart, however, I could melt away that resistance and allow my true self to feel the heat of the sun. It would start off slowly, touching my toes, feet and ankles and eventually working its way up to the head where the busy monkey mind lives in every time zone but the present.
I would then accept my shortcomings and realize that I am only human. Like our nation, I am on this earth to form a more perfect union between myself and all others. I would learn to forgive myself and then seek the loving glow of forgiveness from others.
God’s sigh would fall upon me and I would feel His mysticism in all things. I’d see all other sentient beings as brothers and sisters all birthed from the same materials the Divine used when creating this world.
All actions, I would then learn, were, are and forever will be, part of Providence’s plan for me to evolve and return to the loving child that existed before this present life. I will then be content knowing I’m on the path back to His Divine Light.
