⏰ Every minute. ⏰
How many moments in the last day have you been intensely and acutely alive?
How about in the last week?
The last month?
Actually, it turns out.....the answer is all of them.
You can’t numb yourself to the intense aliveness that IS you.
Underneath it all – the foibles, the frailties the fears and the phobias, and still - You couldn’t be an ounce more alive than you are right now.
The secret is to know it.
To embrace the obvious.
This is your life.
This moment. Right NOW.
This is a fleeting, frozen moment you will never, ever, forever - get back.
So inhale it.
And try to Love it no matter how much it’s not the moment you’d like it to be.
So simple, and yet.......
Clearly not easy.
What do i need to give up, to wake up?
What do i need to let go of, to drop – to accept – to make this moment perfect?
Actually – you have nothing to do with it.
The moment already is, exactly as it is.
So just Lean back and let it be.
Our evergreen, eternal challenge?
The intuition that promises, with just the right amount of effort and energy – combined with the right amount of luck, things will be different than exactly how they are.
A perpetual push for something altogether different than what already is.
I remember when i Was a kid – maybe 8 or 10 or 12 – i would look at the world – the little world that was mine – and see nothing but oceans of opportunity to experience and explore.
I would look down and consider my arms – my fingers and toes – and think – i am equipped for anything.
I am ferociously free.
How lucky can i be?
The world is my playground.
For I can do anything.
I can reach up and stretch to the sky – i can move and run – dash in any direction – i can roll around on the ground and make a mess out of me – i can scream and jump up and try to touch the stars…and when i land – – breathless and tired – i can rest for a moment, so I can begin, and experience it all yet again.
"I am alive!"
How and why and what and where…..I never thought to care.
For the beginners mind.
Alive was enough.
The good news is, with a little bit of work, I've learned that never goes away.
It may feel a little bit silly when you start. (Again)
But the playground is always there.
And even after all of these years –
It hasn’t changed.
And really, underneath it all, neither have you
