Happiness did not arrive with the cessation of turmoil, the elimination of challenges, the nullification of critcism, or the eradication of opponents.

In my opinion, happiness arrives when judgment, doubt, worry, anger, and unworthiness become insignificant from one breath to the next.
*
*
When my mind is empty, open, with a giving intention, happy with a big smile is near.
*
*
In tough times, happy comes when I accept me and the harsh situation without judgment.
*
*
It comes with knowing I need not flee, need not make excuses, need not judge or destroy it, it will change.
*
*
*
I know my happy will endure, outlast any situation or person by years, now.

This one, and a couple others, was making his bed in the flowers, literally. At sundown I would find it down on the flower’s centre while the petals would close up around it, to keep the cold and wind off. Not an unintelligent action at all.

In fact it isn’t hard to see the intelligence in any part of nature, the power animating and giving function to the form so that all the parts fit together to make the whole, of nature. It only requires the surrender of prejudice, thought.

Nature, what we are in existence…
