Let Joy Plow Through Your Soul

You tend to turn your attention to the less beautiful sights of life. The ship of hardship in your ocean of feelings. The incessant chant of your restless ego. The guilt in your gut. The sorry’s and the sorrows.

This tendency is undeniable. It is normal, too. Even useful for you to flourish in a universe that may be an indifferent one. You worry—sometimes beyond reason—because of your innate drive to thrive. You get anxious because of your fear of loss.

Life fights all odds stacked against it. Life is a fire that doesn’t die until nothing is left but ashes.

Yet you must not let the reality of your fragility to drown out your dream for transcendence. You must not let the mist of fear hover over your moments of euphoria.  

You must allow joy to plow through your soul.
