Self, Pleasure, Divinity

A  L  O  H  A !
We all woke up this morning 
and we had with it the 
amazing return of our 
conscious mind. We recovered 
minds with a complete 
sense of self and a 
complete sense of 
our own existence — yet 
we hardly ever pause 
to consider this wonder.” 
                António R. Damásio

"Why not seize the 
pleasure at once?
How often is happiness 
destroyed by preparation, 
foolish preparation?"
                   Jane Austin

“Our humanity 
is an expression 
of divinity 
in action” 
   Kate Mullane Robertson

I pause. For about another 1/2 hour before I get up!

Beautiful happy images and quotes Cloudia.. personally I am very happy each morning I wake up, just because I did 😀

That top quote is interesting. I think, though, that it comes in part from those who don't remember their night time consciousness at all. There's more of a continuum between waking and sleeping consciousness than many people think.

Grab happiness as soon as you see it! Every dog I know lives by that motto! ;-)
