Smily Words

The Joy of a Smile

"I caught a smile today.
I held it in the palm of my hand
and marveled at the beauty that it possessed.
The light that shone from within its soul leapt in powerful succession;
all of my grey clouds were blown away.
The infectious childhood delight was its parade.
No false pretenses did it portray.
I have caught other smiles before this day,
ones that would tear through my soul with icy fire,
ones that would mock with fake apathy,
ones that would cry tears of woe but laugh with wretched scorn.
This little smile, oh what a beautiful and marvelous gift it is.
This little smile has come to me from a heart that has truly seen,
for it warmed my palm like that of the moonlight fairies.
It kissed my heart and brought to it such peace;
joy flowed through the crevices that time had create.
Oh, what blessing is this tiny smile,
if only I could keep it tucked inside my palm forever.
But no, this gift is not mine to keep for eternity,
rather, it is only inspiration for a moment.
I must let the smile go, to go and bring this same delight to another soul in longing.
Today, I opened my palm and sweetly blew the smile away.
Into the winds it magically flew, softly kissing the lips of the sky.
As I watched this tiny smile flutter away,
my own began to form."

"Then she sees Jesus but does not recognize Him. Not until He speaks her name: "Mary". Then her eyes are opened."
Jn 20: 14-16

And so does are mine.
I believe there is this invitation in my soul:
I believie in this ressurrection of my life... Let back all the darkness of the world and get dressed of the life's light, of the whitness on our look and smile, of the clarity on our embrace or helping hand, of a crystal clear testify,... I believe.
I believe being possible to let a true trackable follow steps living way to the bright side of the life.
I believe that we can 'recome' to life in this sense of meaning... restart from nothing... get drunken on the higher love... When we give love... when we give ourselves in love we feel like a little ressurrection of our soul... when we give ourselves totally,... when I dye for myself and live for the other one... whatever it means... physical, psychological, professional, emotional, spiritual...
I Believe.
We do ressurrect to a new born living life, to the happiness of the love,... right in the middle of the happiness where the love is color, is breathe, is touch, is taste, is music, is all in all that we can LIVE.
I believe so much...
I do B LIVE!

"And so my heart rejoices
my soul is glad,
even my body shall rest in safety
for you will not leave my soul among the dead,
nor let you beloved know decay;
You will show me the path of life
the fullness of joy in your presence
at your right hand happiness for ever"
Psalm 16: 9-11

Love's Weekend - Love's Life

Last weekend, was a weekend of love...
I reflected on Pope encyclical letter "DEUS CARITAS EST". I don't want to explain it here but I really recommend it to EVERYone. It contains a message much beyond any believing faith, about how we can understand the love, on its different acclivities, and how this love can be LIVEd on a truly human way.
"This transformation can be recognized and tested by anyone, independant of his faith, religion, and even else if doesn't praticise any religion"(2). For the unprejudice, courage and free minds, you can find it here. "I believe so very much. Because love is universal. I mean, you don't have to tell somebody that loving is better than hating"(3).
About a year ago, I reflected with my friends in our Group, on Desmond Tutu book "God has a Dream". It's funny and seriously amazing, one year after, feel how can be easy to turn real this dream in our lifes and how universal and practical could be this dream... "Love grows through love. Love is 'divine' because it comes from God and unites us to God; through this unifying process it makes us a 'we' which transcends our divisions and makes us one, until in the end God is 'all in all'."(1)
"We should learn to see with the eyes of the heart". "If we had eyes to see, we would look each other and see the God's beauty and we would call ones and others with the reverence and awe appropriated."(2). "Love is the light — and in the end, the only light — that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practise it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world"(1).
As long as we try to feel, to grow, to understand, to live with this "look of love", and see the humanity that flourish deeply inside of each Human Living Heart, we can enlight this world of such warm peace that we won't need to search for God anywhere... We will recognize Him all over His creation and beyond His grace we will
