The Joy of Being Real

December 24, 2018

When you don’t try, 
when you are simply here now, 
when you don’t cover your sadness with a fake smile,
When you are present
To the flow of feelings
To the coming and goings of
Things as they happen
You discover 
The joy of being real. 

Trying, fixing, improving, is very tiring. It draws joy away from you. 

No feeling, no life challenge, is unbearable. At the heart of every difficulty lies the joy of being real. The relief of feeling whole. 

When you’re real you are the depth of the blue sky, you are the blossom of all flowers, you are the leaping sun in the morning, you are the treasure of the world. 

When you don’t try,
When you are simply here
You finally rest
Your life is in an embrace 
All the rest is flowing at ease
And joy is simply yours.
