 Thanks Giving

I feel very fortunate and thankful. I have a wonderful and generally fulfilling life. I have a loving and growth oriented marriage of 25 years, a son worthy of praise and admiration, and a life style fitted to my nature.

I’m in love with life. I am fortunate to have relatively good health, and find human experience to be amazing and captivating. Though I find much to be critical of, I more often than not see problems as an opportunity for growth rather than a death sentence.

I find we are as fond of ignoring the positives in life as we are in denying its limitations. I wish more of us would delight in our humanity and not view it as an obstacle to overcome. The following song addresses this concern as well as any other mode I can articulate today.

I fully realize that suffering is the reality of far too many people. I for one will continue to do my best to help make the world be a better place.

Take some time today and everyday and take a long soak in that Bath of Joy we call human experience.

Bath of Joy (lyrics/reveries)

Bath of Joy

Life’s like a game of hide and seek we’re winners when we find
The clues are there if we look, listen and divine
My heart is racing when I sense an answer is coming to light
Oh I do feel a surge of meaning as my spirit does takes flight
Who can say “I found my heart”, who will say it loud?
If you can say “I live my heart”, say it ever proud

Bathe yourself in your joy
Be a sun shining forth
Share your gift with everyone
Solve the puzzle make it fun

People say many things that protect them from the dark
Yet many times these very words push them off the mark
Life is life and not a haven, predestined or a lark
Seek not hide is the answer to help ignite the spark
We can feel many things but only one at a time
We can learn many things because we aren’t sublime

Don’t vilify uncertainty
Don’t demystify mystery
Come alive suddenly
Bathe yourself in your humanity

Can you feel my heart building steam?
Steeped in real life not in dream
Primed to realize all our joy
Life’s a prize a gift and a toy (so enjoy)

Sometimes freedom begets chaos throws me into fright
All I fashioned is torn and cut by irration’s knife
Yet my bleeding gets me going I focus on the light
Soon I heal from understanding life’s sensuous might

Can you feel my heart building steam?
Steeped in real life not in dream
Primed to realize all our joy
Life’s a prize a gift and a toy (so enjoy)

Bathe yourself in your joy
Be a sun shining forth
Share your gift with everyone
Solve the puzzle make it fun
