“By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea. You and me, you and me. Oh, how happy we’ll be!”
–“By the Beautiful Sea”: Written in 1914. Music: Harry Carroll. Lyrics: Harold R. Atteridge.
Some things are not easy to see, even when they are right at your feet:
- Infinite love
- The potential for happiness
- Natural beauty
- The web of life that connects us all
Even as life comes crashing down on you, wave after wave, you still have everything at your feet. All you have to do is open your eyes to see it.
RIGHT NOW, you have access to infinite love.
RIGHT NOW, you can choose to be happy.
RIGHT NOW, you can gain inspiration from the simplest of things. Better still, even in your pain, you can be an inspiration to others.
RIGHT NOW, you are more beautiful than you’ve ever been. Take a look around you, at nature, at everything God has made. Is there anything that did not start out as a perfect thought? God does not make mistakes; people make mistakes. YOU are not a mistake.
RIGHT NOW, you are connected–to everything, to everyone. What you give to the living, breathing entity that is life and what you take from it matters. Give as much good as you can whenever you can and remember, in times of trouble and isolation, to absorb from this entity the power, balance, and wisdom you require when your soul needs replenishing.
