I am writing to remind you of things you already know. It is important to smile to each day as you greet it. Your smile is an offering of hospitality to the day and an acknowledgment of the gift it is to be awake.
Your smile also makes the statement that you remember who you are—a spiritual being having a precious, human experience that is temporary. When you get enmeshed with the roles you play (identify with them), you miss the beauty of simply being aware, here and now. The tasks that you perform and the conflicts you encounter when you are playing the role of worker, spouse, parent, lover, friend, grandparent, child, etc. do not define you. They are just part of the experiences of being human. Embrace them, but don’t get caught up in the drama. Don’t confuse the part you play with your purpose. It is always the quality of your presence that matters. Your smile acknowledges this.
Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love, and therefore, to live into the fullness of who you are.
As always, do what best awakens you to love,
Your Inner Wisdom
