Be a novice. Be a blank page. Be embryonic in your sense of yourself. You are just learning the steps. You are just starting out. It is okay to be stupid or blind or to not have the answers. It is okay to be wrong, to make mistakes, to muck it all up. This is all part of the process of becoming, of enlightenment, of living. Love it all. The confusion. The mess. The raw, red rims of your eyes. Love the experience of being born. Love the experience of watching the old way of life die. Watch everything burn. Watch everything go. Don’t be afraid. This. This is how you find your way. You don’t notice the changes as they come. you just wake up, one bright morning- sky the color of robin’s eggs- and you realize that you are there. And you open the door and smell the restless air and say a prayer of profound thanks. ~Shavawn M. Berry
can you remember the last time you felt compelled to breathe in and really know the mysterious veil that nature provides?……may it all move so slowly you don’t miss a thing…
inquiry for today~ how will you choose to notice the day?
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
~Viktor E. Frankl
