Pure joy in every moment

You set your own spiritual temperature at any given moment.

Often times it doesn’t seem like it. I’d say it seems more like we’re just sitting in some room and, at times, it’s comfortable, but for whatever reason, most of the time, it’s not.

Like we don’t have the security code to unlock the thermostat, but whoever does must be having crazy heat flashes because it’s damn cold in here.

I’m convinced the code to unlock that thermostat is right here in our pockets. We’ve just failed to look.

We set the spiritual thermostat in every moment of our lives.

I truly believe that you and I can experience pure, unbridled joy in each and every moment. For no outside reason at all. Many have proven this throughout a range of trying circumstances (Viktor Frankl comes to mind).

It has nothing to do with what’s going on out there.

You set the temperature. You bring the heat. You pump up the volume.

Can you imagine if even a small few of us realized this (and lived it)? We might just light up the world.

Now, where’s that code again? It’s getting chilly in here.
