I arrived at the Doctor's Surgery for my appointment this morning and was informed that the Doctor was running about 30 minutes late. No problem I told the receptionist, I will go and do and some shopping and come back. How I love my life when I am in my 'right mind' of just being LOVE and JOY not getting upset and resisting what is happening. Everything flows joyfully! I head to the supermarket where I have an absolutely joyful chat with the young man who is packing the shelves in the fruit and vegetable section. We talk about being in the 'right mind' and how life then brings us a mirror of our mind with joyful and loving encounters with people. I only need a couple of things in the supermarket, so I have some time to just browse around the shopping centre. I find myself looking in the window of the gift store that I have walked by many times and never considered going in for a look. I heard my inner voice say: "Go in just for a look, a moment to enjoy looking at lovely things." I felt joyful at the thought of just enjoying looking! I found myself at the counter after a few minutes where I spotted a little box of Sri Chinmoy inspirational cards. These beautiful cards are offered freely and I have several at home. I pulled some out of the box to have a look and then Sue turned up in front of me and asked if she could help me. I told her I loved these little sayings and I had just come in to have a look at beautiful things. We chatted about these lovely inspirational cards and I chose one that said: "The human is me loves to live. The divine in me lives to love." Today I was loving to live so that I could share the divine love in me. Then a joyful thought arrived to extend a gift to Sue of one of my own little inspirational 'pearls of wisdom' scrolls that I freely give away. Sue was delighted and then I noticed her beautiful heart necklace. I was inspired to take a photo to share with you this ordinary moment of living in the LOVE and JOY of our birthright in the ordinary moments of a daily life. Sue left to buy herself a coffee and then I continued looking around at all the beautiful things. I spotted a little hanging angel ornament with the words written on her: "Home is where your Joy and Love is shared". Yesssssssssss it is! Home is in the place I am in any moment, where my Joy and Loved is shared. In that moment I was truly 'HOME'. Home is a place inside my mind and Heart where my true Self abides in Love and Joy. I was overcome with LOVE and JOY as the thought arrived that I could buy myself this little Angel as a gift for myself! I wanted to jump with JOY as I said out loud to Darryl who was serving at the counter that I was going to buy myself a present! I almost never buy myself 'gifts'! When I arrived at the counter, the phone rang and it was the Doctor's receptionist telling me I was next in line to see the Doctor. I was in the flow of Divine Love and Joy where life flows effortlessly and every moment is used in service to the real abiding LOVE and JOY in my mind and Heart. It is really very simple when you live like a child in the NOW moment.
