Keep your eye on love. Stay focused on love. What can the point be to herald lack of love or to pounce on any lack as if lack of love or lack of anything is what you want to extract from the Universe? No, you want life to shine love with all its might. “The world is too much with us.”
When the extant world is overrunning your heart, how does it behoove you to run avidly after a track of disappointment in life when there are also other trains that cross the Earth that you can get on? Get off this train and onto another.
There is also The Good Ship Lollipop.
In terms of life, you do catch onto the idea of love evermore. Keep your eyes on the rainbow. You can greet life flowing all over with good intent. You can see life from new heights. No, no, no, you don’t want to turn into a Scrooge who minimizes giving. Give life a second chance. Be generous to life. See life from a new angle. See life in great colors. Begin life now on a better footing.
Life still has yet some welcome gifts to give you. Look forward, Beloved. Life may have visited what you see as hard times to you. So be it.
Think also about all the goodness life has vested in you. The Sun shines whether it shines forth on you its bright light every day or not. Life doesn’t have to placate you. In the midst of darkness, you can also know that the Sun is fulfilling its promise. Regardless, the Sun shines, and it shines on you, although you may not always feel its warmth on your face.
Life may not be everything you desire, yet life has also shows you what wonders it does perform. A love in your life cannot be returned to you as in yesteryear, yet a loved one was given to you, and life tomorrow also gives you a new Sun upon which you can view the world, and you can welcome life to you with a tip of your hat. Give life good cheer. Can it be that you are ungrateful to life? Alas, the Big Bad Wolf has had some say, yet never do I throw up My hands when it comes to you.
The Big Bad Wolf isn’t even in the same league with life.
Beloved, do you project outward what lies within?
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.”
Sometimes you also participate in your fate. Nor are you to blame fate nor are you to blame life nor are you to blame yourself.
I, God, bless you to life, and I bless you to your good fortune which you have a-plenty as well. Give life a good chance. Be for life and not hard on life or hard on yourself. Beckon life forward to you. Life is for you.
The World Is Too Much With Us
The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—
Little we see in Nature that is ours…
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
