Suffering sometimes comes from feeling like it’s you against the world. There is much to fight for and much to prove. It can be liberating to release this notion of separation and realize the interconnectedness of everything that shares this planet and beyond.
In mindful presence,
Throw off the bonds of your conditioning and fear
and celebrate the wonder of being here.
Experience this moment as it is,
connected by breath and essence to the whole.
You couldn’t be separate if you tried.
Live this day as if the earth exhales blessings in your direction,
as if trees speak their deepest secrets in your ear,
as if bird songs can lift you
outside your ordinary state of mind and bring you into truth.
Be the creative juice flowing through the universe.
Be silence and stillness,
the ocean of love so palpable that
not one cell of you disputes the truth that
you are that.
