Happiness begets happiness, and everyone wants to be happy. Happiness heals. It washes away the muck of doubt and pessimism. Such energies cannot stick to the happy heart. The happy heart sees the inherent goodness, the inherent beauty, the original design. The original design comes from Mother Earth, from Great Spirit, from God. Everything has its shadow. My happiness has its counterweight in unhappiness, the condition of duality. Being human is being in the state of duality. Spirit dances the duality dance. It weaves between these two states of being, with compassion, weaving the strands of wisdom that gives us, gradually, new cloths to wear. New, invisible armor. The clothing of understanding. We need this clothing to move comfortably and safely through this turbulent world where so many emotions are not processed.
