Joy and gladness fill the heart
Of those who let them in to start
To live, and love and realign
With power from the Source Divine.
The path to find this blessed way
Is opened up to us each day
Knowing each decision made
Will face the future unafraid.
Philosophies learned in a book
Should not be foolishly mistook
For living life in joy and love
And sharing blessings from above
By seeking happiness outside
We live in ego and in pride
But look within to quiet voice
We realize now there is a choice.
To fault and gripe and criticize
Every flaw and all the lies
Or lift our consciousness to light
To carry us through darkest night.
Where happiness and peace reside
With power that can turn the tide
Of hatred, war, and prejudice.
The root of which is selfishness.
Instead we take the higher road
And learn to lift another's load
To seek the beautiful and good
And love each other as we should.
For loving others, faults and all
Will crumble yet the highest wall
And lead us on the path sublime
Given patience, given time.
For what we give returns to us
Some say in threefold times and thus
By living life the best we can,
We learn to help our fellow man.
To make the world a better place
We turn the sunlight on our face
And realize that when we employ
The Source of grace, we live in joy!
