A number of years ago I was driving the same hum drum drive that I always drove. Down this street, left on this street, down this other street, right on this street, and you’re there. However, something was different this time…they were building a new building. It didn’t mean much to me…just another building taking away homes for animals that use to live in the vacant lot. Every time a building goes up, I always think about lines of refugees having to leave so that the humans can cling to more progress.
However, when the building went up I was amazed! There were smiles all over it. Now, I don’t think they planned it..but there they were. Each section of the building had 2 big rectangular windows, and directly below them was this decorative sash thing. When you looked at it…it was a smiley face. This building was full of smiley faces…wow!!! Wow!!! Suddenly, the hum drum drive turned into a happy drive. I had a constant reminder to smile. This 1 building changed a lot of things for me. I pointed it out to everyone I knew, and they either laughed at me or just looked at me strange. However, nobody could deny the fact that…they now knew the building was smiling at them! I walked into the building and asked the employees if they knew about their optimistic building. Sudenly, I had all the employees outside looking at their buiding..adn an amazing thing happened…they began smiling too. Honest to god Smiles!
Since that moment I have looked for smiles and smiling faces in the natural world. Wow…I have seen many. There are smiles all over the place. There’s smiles in trees, there are smiles in the clouds, and if you look carefully…there are even smiles in people’s wrinkles. Speaking of wrinkles…you do realize that wrinkles are only reminders of where smiles have been!
Then very recently, I began following a blog called Hunting for Bliss.
The young lady who writes the blog does all sorts of amazing cool things, but one of the things I think are the neatest is that she searches for “Heart Rocks”. You have to check out the blog and the amazing pictures that she has Just reading this blog will make you a happier person…through funding bliss in her life, she is putting out that bliss for others. So, what are heart rocks?
Heart Rocks are rocks that you find naturally that looks like a heart. These rocks are found everywhere! These heart rocks are in every section of the world, and every place in the world. People have found them in every section of the globe, from the arctic to the antarctic. From the south seas to, Africa, to Europe and in North America. These things are even found on the moon. All you have to do is look. For a plethera of examples please go to the Hunting For Bliss blog. Here are a few examples I’ve found on the net…but they are by far not the only examples:
With these smiling faces and hearts all naturally occurring everywhere..it makes sense that mother nature/God/The Universe wants us to always remember that love is all encompassing. Love is everywhere, and love is the connective energy that connects us all. I’m not talking about the love someone feels for a milkshake, or the love people talk about that they feel for one another. I’m talking about the love that all humanity feels for the rest of humanity. The grand and unbelievable love that pours out when someone is in need, and 100 people come to their aid. The love we have that connects us to nature and all the natural things.
It’s also a reminder to be happy. Everything that happens to us doesn’t have to be seen as bad. It can be seen as good, happy, and wonderful…it’s all how we choose to see it. That’s why there are so many signs that are pointing us to be happy. Like my Smiley face building (that I still drive by and tell people about), these natural smiley faces are reminders to all of us that we need to smile, we need to be happy, and we need to see the happiness in everything.
So go out and find the heart rocks and discover the smiley faces that are all around us. The more you see them and find them…the more happy you are. The more happy and positive you are, the better the world will be.
Please post pictures of the rocks and smilyes that you find!
