Which Secret Garden Will You Tend?

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, 
as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice 
which secret garden we will tend… 
when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives 
but are grateful for the abundance that’s present— 
love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature 
and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure— 
the wasteland of illusion falls away 
and we experience Heaven on earth.” 
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach ~

And could you keep your heart in wonder 
at the daily miracles of your life, 
your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy.
     ~ Khalil Gibran

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves

but when we burst open...
we’re actually turning into a supernova.

we see that we’re suddenly 
more beautiful than we ever were before!
     ~ C. JoyBell C.

and empathy and pleasure 
are all around us, there for the noticing.
