Love's Confusing Joy

If you want what visible reality
can give, you are an employee.

If you want the unseen world,
you are not living with your truth.

Both wishes are foolish,
but you'll be forgiven for forgetting
that what you really want is
love's confusing joy.

Happy Valentine's Day

That is completely lovely, Ruth. May today be a day for love's joy - even if it's confusing.

Oh, joy! — now I'm completely confused...

I like the second stanza. "if you want the unseeen world, you are not living with your reality." Its the old, "I'll be happy when..." syndrome. Its important to appreciate what we have in this time rather look to our past - or future - as being filled with more abundance.
