We are all part of a universal unfolding, with many influences co-creating our lives. The deeper we go into a creative relationship with our experience, we begin to realize that we have tremendous powers.
The paradox is that in order to access these powers, we have to live in service to the great unfolding, and enter a great humility, full of wonder and surrender. It’s a different power than trying to build ourselves up with affirmations like “I’ve got the power”, “I’ve got the confidence”, “I have to do it right” or “I’m going to do it better than”.
All of that moves us away from the power that is available to us. In the humbleness of realizing what we are part of and made of, we begin to surf the big miracle of life itself.

and where are you now? in the bigness of your life…..and maybe it’s a lifelong paradox…..you may want to honor that….
inquiry for today~ what feels really big today?
Beyond all that pain has taught
me, the soft well at the base of
time has opened, and life
touching me there
has turned me into a flower
that prays for rain. Now
I understand: to blossom
is to pray, to wilt and shed
is to pray, to turn to mulch
is to pray, to stretch in the dark
is to pray, to break surface
after great months of ice
is to pray, and to squeeze love
up the stalky center toward the
sky with only dreams of color
is to pray, and finally to unfold
again as if never before
is to be the prayer.
