Discovering the secrets of the “You-niverse”…

IMG_1344

Hello dear friends and hello, beautiful world! Today, I sit surrounded by the perfect harmony of chaos and perfection….the sky was brilliant…the clouds couldn’t have been more poofy…life dazzled and glowed in an amazing brilliance…the wind…the sun…the scent of a world still expanding….a world at full orbit…and how it does spin….!

It seems at times that we have been programed to weep at the “yet undelivered”…the “imperfections” in ourselves and in our world….and yet…isn’t it the lure of the “almost”…the  tantalizing presence of the surprise that is “just around the corner” that makes our hearts skip a beat?…. Isn’t it the wonder of a new discovery that arises out of the ashes of “disaster” that makes us leap tall buildings in celebration of the magnificence of all that we have become…isn’t it sometimes our harshest moments that let us come face to face with that which we truly desire…isn’t it the plunge that most quickly leads us to embrace the core that points to who we truly are….

As I pulled into the driveway tonight and stepped out of the car, I was gripped in the perfection of the instant…the diamond-like chill was pure and yet all embracing…the stars pierced through the day’s distractions with the powerful call of a Universe whose sky is often to be seen but never to be repeated….and I knew that I was MEANT to be here….right now…as me…with every component of my kaleidoscope whirling into play…

Look at our marvelous planet, dear friends…breathe it in…we are a heavenly concoction of tastes and textures…visions…desires..quests…dreams…challenges…and indeed miracles…we stumble..then we rise and we create…we question our purpose…we question the meaning….and then without quite realizing… we redefine eternity…just by being…just by living…just by asking…just by being alive…

And so…it stands to be said…isn’t the “meaning” of it all simply the beauty of learning to be you…yes, REALLY you… the “good, the bad and the ugly”…. the gift is in the opportunity to evolve…to create a new moment now irrelevant of the moments that came before or of the moments that will follow…the “meaning” is the gift of being allowed to “stumble”…to “botch it up”…to cry…to rebel..to question…to love…to change…to see….to dream…to aspire…to ‘never get it done”….to be as stern or as silly as you wish…to explore..to learn….as bright or as boring as you heart tells you to be… maybe the “meaning” is simply to leave your own very unique and important thumbprint on this tiny world…

Without you…nothing would be quite the same…so….what are you going to do with your moment…your uniqueness…your meager hundred years to dance on this stage….to draw on this palate….how do you wish to remember this moment….isn’t it time to touch the true fabric of all that it means to be (yes) truly and intoxicatingly human…..?
