    I want to remember all of the joys I have experienced.
    I want to recognize all of the joys I am yet to experience. When you have a good enough reason it’s the same as knowing what you want. Life is not mind. Find the joy in everything. There are no boundaries for what is possible. I only want the natural peace I already have. I only want my inherent peace…. my quiet mind. All that matters already exists. Wanting what is missing is not seeing what is already there. Everything is here. Only a joyful mind can experience joy. Close your eyes and allow everything ! Even the fear. White is the purity of peace and joy. I am the white light. I want to just let it all go and stop hanging on….. I want to be free. I want to stop reaching. I want to just let life be…. what life was manifested to be…. and be happy with that…. always being content with knowing and believing that life is not my job to control or hold in place. There are things of the most amazing wonder happening all of the time. Thoughts are just there. They just do what they do. And ALL fear thoughts are totally unnecessary. Like all thoughts they simply come and go. They are their own thing. I am my own thing. Thoughts are over there. I am over here….observing them. Thoughts don’t have to be believed. They are separate from me. They are not me. Be still… Notice what is natural. Hear it. See it. Sense it. Find the beauty in it. Find the joy of it. It’s so much more peaceful that way. The sights and sounds and aromas of nature reveal the true reality of what life is. And the peaceful powerful energy that is behind its continuous creation and wondrous existence are proven.
