A smile offers a gateway to understanding and sharing.
A smile may sometimes take awhile.
There are even days when a smile just will not shine.
Why smile, you say, on such a day…why should I care?
The expression on your face is straight.
It is true that, at times, a smile seems out of place.
Your mind tells you not to bother, forget the smile.
This happens often when you listen to your head.
These thoughts overshadow the moment.
Then you are filled with dread.
This should not be, but alas, often we do not see.
A smile is the golden key.
There is more there than just a smile.
The smile broadens wide as life flows.
It is the reason that we know.
It is not always shown and yet it continues to flow.
You will remember just be aware.
Life offers so much more when we care.
It is deep within and also around and about.
Do you feel it?
It is there, have no doubt.
Life is a smile.
There to share, to give and to get.
Look not only on the faces that go by.
This is not only where a smile is to be found.
It is somewhere far beyond and still so near.
Do you feel it now?
It has always been here.
Now you remember and now you know.
Let the smile blossom.
Nurture it and let it grow.
A smile is known to human beings as a gesture of happiness and good will. However it is more than just a facial expression. All objects manifesting life have the ability to channel this energy and to allow it to flow. We can enter the dimension of conscious energy in each moment through active awareness to the present moment.
Best wishes to everyone!
