Seeds like stars breathe in, out.
No plans; only readiness.
What if I stood in line to be here on this planet at this time, in this body, in this life? What if some part of me chose this, so I could play and experiment and learn and grow and discover what makes me truly happy?
What if this part of me knows the true beauty of the situation, and is always with me, gently nudging me in the right direction, toward my joy?
Well… now that I’ve won the lottery, and am in fact alive here and now in this precious life, how willing am I to fully participate? To listen, learn, receive, share? To get my feet in the dirt and hands in the clay and make my life into a gorgeous work of art – like no other life could possibly be?
Things look so dark and heavy sometimes – why would I have chosen this? Maybe I placed these dark and heavy things here to wake myself up. And when I look through truly willing eyes at what seems to block my path, a lovely shift occurs. What seemed so solid begins to look like a veil, gently blowing in the breeze. Behind it, Reality gleams and beckons: free, unchanging, and so kind.
Most of what’s asked of us is just to show up here, in this moment. Aware. Open-hearted. Sure-footed. Willing to see clearly. Willing to be my full, true, powerful, successful, loving, joyful Self.
