Rejoice in Happiness

 

Reading about the cycle of kharma, how in different lives sometimes one is the harmed, sometimes the victim. Round and round it goes. Also remembered that one can step out of the circle of fate and choose a state of grace. I do choose to end the dance.

Was practicing meditation on sympathetic joy – where one takes someone who is happy and rejoice in their happiness. Something we often find difficult to do. I chose Liz who had come into her own in early retirement, healthy, strong, happy and gloriously fulfilled in her art. I chose her because I am very fond of her, but also because being with her can’t help but underline what I have lost through illness. It was a lovely rich feeling. I felt true happiness for her and also deep content that such happiness can exist. How happy I was knowing of such happiness.
