holding hands

The privilege of a lifetime

is being who you are.

What you have to do,

you do with play.

Life is without meaning.

You bring meaning to it.

The meaning of life is

whatever you ascribe it to be.

Being alive is the meaning.

The warrior’s approach

is to say yes to life:

yea to it all.

Participate joyfully

in the sorrow of the world.

We cannot cure the world of sorrows,

but we can choose to live in joy.

When we talk about

settling the world’s problems,

we’re barking up the wrong tree.

The world is perfect. It’s a mess.

It has always been a mess.

We are not going to change it.

Our job is to straighten out

our own lives.

~Joseph Campbell

when you wipe your tears away- what remains?

inquiry for today~ the tilt of your head and the moment you actually listen……remember this……

a little sassy

The deeper world is always there, knowable and reachable. It is we who by turns miss it and stumble into it. When life aligns and we get to see through, we have to lean in and accept what we see, so we can be touched by the mysterious. When these moments align, we enter the deeper world. When we don’t dismiss them, we bathe in the richness of existence, which opens our eyes to history and our heart to the indestructible feel fo life. Being patient enough to align and pursue our efforts of awareness, we can enter the shimmer of life that waits inside ordinary time. This is a baptism of meaning that only authentic and patient presence can open.
