Einstein said there are only two ways to live your live your life
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I get into trouble in my life
When I fail to treat my time as precious.
When I succumb to tasks, crisis, disputes, social obligations
Doing things not unique, not interesting, not the product of thought.
Reacting to the ups and downs, tossed to and fro
By this and that, very little of which is significant.
Trying to get lots done
Rather than unique work of quality and beauty
Which takes focus. And re-work.

My life has a flow, my work power
When I create my life, rather than react to it
Live my own rhythm.
Work to manifest my beauty
Which starts with downtime,
Starts with building inner momentum, inner power.

Beware, I say, of
Tranquilization by the long term insignificant
By the trivial.
~Roderick MacIver

and when we realize our personal truth is fluid and longing and beyond lifetimes, then we know that we have been living all along…..

The sacred always whispers, calling me- Come home
I ache to feel that fire in muscle, breath and bone
Love brings me fully Here, where spirit and matter unite
In this crucible of wholeness, soul becomes embodied light

~Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Our true nature is like the infinite sky,

unmarked by whatever drama temporarily appears

in its vast space. 

~Kittisaro
