The world is a big, beautiful place, ready for our elbows-deep immersion in complexity and the many facets of all we create, feel, and experience. It’s clear to me that this life is a (carnival) ride, an experience, a chosen story that we’ve all selected to have together — actually as one.
It’s important to be aware of as much as possible. To see, hear, smell, feel, taste, absorb, drink in every thing. Every moment is a miracle. Every connection to another is a deep gift. Finding our unique place, and our individual task/gift/purpose adds to a universal vibration and evolution. How amazing to be part of the collective experience of building, seeing, creating, evolving.
I can see all of this on a macro level. The challenge is how to bring this into the minute, small, intimate moments of each day, each encounter, each day. The struggle is to see every encounter or experience as part of this great wholeness.
We constantly strive to remember that the people we meet, our relationships, jobs, home and chores are as much a part of the magical, mystical experience of life as is the awareness that comes in meditation. How do I see the mundane as mystical? How can I remember that each moment I am alive is full of so much to see, feel, be?
This abundance awareness, remembered in stillness, is what I wish for all of us in the new year. We are living in a chaotic time, challenged by too many crises, suffering the proliferation of devices and distractions. Let’s remember to cut through the noise, really SEE each other, and revel in our shared, co-creative experience that is this one perfect life.
