True success is to witness the unfolding of the divinity within us. It is the perception of divinity wherever we go, in whatever we perceive – in the eyes of a child, in the beauty of a flower, in the flight of a bird. When we experience every moment of our lives as the miraculous expression of divinity, then we’ll know the true meaning of success.
We are travellers on a cosmic journey, and this moment is a little parenthesis in eternity. Life is eternal, but the expressions of life are momentary and transient. Buddha once said, “This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds… A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by like a torrent down a steep mountain.”
We have stopped for a moment to encounter one another, to meet, to love, to share. If we share with caring, light-heartedness, and love, we will create abundance and joy for one another. And then this moment will have been worthwhile.
