The world about us everywhere reflects the glory of our own joy; we can see so clearly the good and the beautiful in everything, and all things seem to make a special effort to present to us their most beautiful side only. Even the clouds turn about so we may see nothing but the silver lining, and pain cries aloud declaring it only means to be pleasure whenever we appear on the scene. The secret of it all is simply this, we carry with us the smile of God, and how soon that smile can change the world. When we see that smile we learn how we are made for happiness, because God is supreme happiness, and we are created in His image and likeness. So great is the joy of the Infinite that to simply touch the hem of His garment is to feel a million thrills of sublime ecstasy.
Rainbows are full of love, peace, dreams & hopes. ~Anthony T.Hincks
Looking around my neighbourhood I can see many photos and handpainted posters of Rainbows stuck to windows, a wonderful tribute to all the hardworking men and woman of our National Health Service. Rainbows are a symbol of peace and a promise that all will be well. They’re often visible after a storm when that first light breaks through those dark clouds signifying that the storm is over. They may have a different meaning to different people, some folklore says there’s a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, some see rainbows the same way they see shooting stars, cross your fingers, make a wish and that wish will come true but for the most part, rainbows are a symbol of hope!
I believe that with all things in life, there is a constant need to let go of the idea of “trying hard”, there’s a heaviness in trying hard to get something, have something or be something. As long as people comply with the idea of “trying hard” they will constantly remain in a place of heaviness. The opposite of this is the state of allowing, of setting out the intentions of what you wish, putting in the required action and not self-sabotaging yourself by “trying hard” or expecting results to unfold in a particular way. Anything that’s worth something to you in life such as love, abundance, freedom, peace is in a continuous state of flow. A state of lightness is the only way to allow yourself to go with the flow of things. Heaviness only makes you become a rocky solid object at the bottom of the stream. You can see the flow of things in the life of others who embody the lightness, but you yourself become unmovable in your state of heaviness as if blocking the flow from reaching you. Will you let yourself move with the flow of abundance or sink at the bottom with the heaviness of your scarcity mindset?” ~Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache
