I do not wish to make sense of life. I wish to dwell in it’s sacred mystery. For life is one infinite, remarkable, unfolding miracle.
Every single breath I take, you take, we take is a true gift. A moment to be held in reverence. I remain humbled for this life given to all of us today, for it is is nothing short of magnificent.
I look up at the cosmos and pay my respect.
For life is a daily, daring, epic adventure, a thrilling mystery ride to explore. I live for the questions, the seeking, the learning and the strikingly beautiful moments of awe.
I am comfortable and content with this.
I do not need answers.
Gratitude is my living, breathing moving prayer, and my heart breaks open wide with an enormously huge appreciation for everything that happens today.
My soul cries out a passionate thank you to God and the universe.
This is how I pray.
My heart softening and melting into the moment.
I am genuinely grateful for this breath, and now this one, and the next. . . For as my friend Julia says. . .
we are all just one exhale away . . .
There is nothing to prove or improve. Not to ourselves or to others. Honoring that we are all made perfect already. No mistakes, all of divine intelligence. We connect to our compassionate soul source, our innate goodness to our loving nature right now.
Love is the only real emotion, every other, the absence of it.
This is our best self, our connected self. Leaning on the cheek of of God, we sway, through our divine dance with life each day.
All of us quite unique on the outside, yet our hearts and souls beating as one.
All throughout the day, I am grateful for this opportunity, this moment right now, to be awake, aware alive and here and I will not waste a moment of it.
Not a single second.
This is how I rise.
