The best medicine for healing the emotional
and spiritual “insult” of our current pandemic
When I smile, I start to feel better connected
to God and to others.
Smiling triggers deeper connections between and among others and me, and fosters a more penetrating connection with God.
Connection with others is a requirement of my being; it’s as necessary as the very air that I breathe.
Connection with God is my true heart’s desire.
Smiling affords me the experience of true spiritual connection with others by helping me recognize that there is a “spiritual something” in me that is “in sync” with a similar “spiritual something” in another person.
Smiling ignites the intangible power that moves me closer to both God’s children and to God as well.
Smiling lets me step back from my self-serving ways and see the Christ in another human being, indeed in every human being.
When this happens, I’m elevated to another plane of living, a plane that offers me a new vantage point on my life and a new discernment of spirit.
Smile – sunshine is good for your teeth.
