oh yes.

Think of yourself as a thought of the Infinite One made flesh by your sheer desire to see and be seen. Think of yourself as Nature looking upon nature in awe at its grandeur, in tears for its wounds, Nature loving itself, healing itself, speaking out for itself.
Think of yourself as a vessel of stardust and clay, a child of the cosmos evolving and transforming every minute of the day matter into energy, particle into wave, mortal into Immortal. Think of yourself as a soul who took on a body to be of use, to radiate love and receive it in return. Think of yourself as a shaman whose hands heal whatever they touch; as a storyteller whose words fall like rain on a drought stricken land, whose stories are medicine- miracles- that heal the sick and raise the dead. Think of yourself as a circle holding yin and yang, as unity cradling duality in your arms. Think of yourself as thought leaning toward radiance, an early dawn rising into daylight. Think of yourself as necessary- purposeful, here for a reason- remember, you came here to light the world. Deep inside you the fire of creation burns day and night, atoms from the Big Bang spin and swirl in your blood and bones, your lungs and your legs. Like salt in the tear, joy in the laughter, the Holy One is in you, being scattered like seeds across the land as you speak and write and reach out to touch.
You are the hands and feet, the eyes and ears of the Great Beloved. It is time now that each of us say what happened and what we learned. To reveal ourselves is to heal ourselves- and to heal ourselves is to heal each other and the world entire. From our revelations of intimacy and truthfulness, vulnerability and generosity, the future takes shape and enters into us- our words made flesh, our thoughts made real. Yes, think of yourself as a creator- the peace you desire, the justice you cry for- these will come as we speak them into being. As the cosmos is being created by the Mind of the Infinite One, this world is being created by the minds of the finite ones, by us.

it takes such great courage to admit that we are more than our roles….

inquiry for today~ maybe all you can do today is notice you are alive and well…..

twisting and resisting

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.

Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything.

that really isn’t you

so you can be who you were meant to be

in the first place.

~Paulo Coelho
