Learned My Lesson

There are no apparent answers,

and absolutely, no solutions.

In fact, I am at a loss to respond.

 

What is the point? Purportedly.

there is always a point.

Some say an intelligent Mover.

 

If this is a plan, it is one lousy plan.

Am I to believe there is a lesson, here?

Is life just an unending problem?

 

I sit in the sun absorbing warmth,

listening for a fragrant sign,

looking for a sweet idea.

 

Then I realize life is not about

what I was or what I will be.

Life is who I am.

 

So, I finally get it;

you teach me by example –

live in the here-now.

 

Enjoy the moment,

regardless of the scene,

in spite of the notion.

 

I sit in the sun absorbing kindness

savoring the discord

sniffing the harmony

 

God is love

I abide in God

and God in me.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
