Journey within

We can live life on the surface

Or we can go deeper within our consciousness

And discover the gems of mystery that exist in us

Gems that need to be polished to shine

Gems that won’t buy us material things

But will enrich our spiritual life

We need to go deeper

We need to see with our inner eye

Our reality, which is most glorious

A reality that has been fashioned

To love and serve and create and contemplate

And we need to see the oneness

That exists in the world of being

And the unity that is at the core of us

The vastness that is available to us

The heights to which our spirit can climb

If we journey deep within us

My laughter does not age!

Are you fearful of getting older?

Not if I’m learning my lessons as I go
Not if I’m contributing to other people’s joy
Not if I’m doing something useful!

Are you fearful of getting older?
Not if I can look at the world with wiser eyes
A more compassionate heart
A twinkle in my eyes

Are you afraid of getting older?
No, since my spirit does not age
My laughter does not get old
My smile is as young as ever!

Yes, my body may not heal as fast as before
But perhaps my spirit can heal faster
There are wrinkles here and there
But why look down on wrinkles
They are the sign of a life well-lived!

So, let’s not fear aging
Let’s celebrate a life well-lived!
