This Sneaking Suspicion


I've got this sneaking suspicion that things are really the other way around.

I've got a feeling that somewhere, somehow we learned fear and sadness and pain, but they are all illusions. They sure seem real, but they are like fog that is meant to dissipate and not remain.

I've got a feeling that the happiness, the peace and contentment that we have been craving, that we've been dying for, are much closer than we've thought.

If only we wouldn't attach to our fears or to our pain. If only we'd learn to quickly let them go. Then we could breathe in peace.

Then we could again dream big dreams and feel empowered to carry them out.

Do I believe in God or is it all a big charade and a bunch of words.

We can be transformed by the renewing of our minds as we consciously let go of our pain and instead trust fully that Life wants the very best for us.

Happiness, peace, joy and love are not for "the others," not for those who seem to get all the breaks. They are for you and I, if we would only free our minds and believe.

It won't be easy at first, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is more than doable. Let's have the lives we've always wanted.
