Every morning, on our way to school, I ask the boys to pick a card each from a deck of mini self-mastery cards that I keep in the car, and every morning we spend a few minutes discussing these concepts. Rayhan, my little one picked a card on “DELIGHT” this morning, and as he read it out, it struck my mind that delight or the possibility to be delighted is everywhere around us. Rayhan said to me that there is no reason not to be delighted all the time even in moments of sadness, because ultimately we have everything we could ever need.
As spiritual beings going through a human experience, this statement was perfectly right. What more can we need when everything is right here at our beckoning. Even moments of sorrow are a part of this human experience and holds beauty in the fact that it fits into the wider narrative of humanity. If we look at the whole, we see an immaculate canvas of life playing itself out in seamless synchronization.
I reflected on the cleaner who keeps our entrance spotless, the gardeners who ensure the landscape remains fresh and immaculate, the workers in the community supermarket who serve us daily, the barber who cut my children’s hair just yesterday, the pharmacist who is always ready to help and advice – I realized how beautifully we all fit into one whole existence. How delightful all this wonderful game of life is!
