Simple Happiness

Do justice. Love kindness. Walk humbly with your Creator.

This ancient passage is a psychological, sociological, and philosophical summary of happiness: Meaningful work. Unconditional love. Confident awareness of our place in the universe.

This morning I had great joy thinking about the abject beauty of the simple and practical application of these three mandates: treating all people, ourselves, and our Creator with respect.

When I am bogged down, it is often because I have forgotten the completeness, simplicity, and purity of this divine request.

Stop striving.

Success, acquisition, relationships, survival, etc. can wait. In fact…they will come…if we do first things first.
