Hello dear wonderful friends and hello dear wonderful universe! Today I sit in appreciation of this moment in time…the air so cool and crisp that its cold beauty dazzles like diamonds… The hum of the frig drones like a distant organ lulling me into a sense of extended peace…the song of a solitary bird chirps in delight as its voice serenades the brilliant blue sky…now the crescendo of an approaching jet….a spontaneous symphony of Life complete with a kaleidoscope of colors, textures and eternal “be-ing”.
All the world at this moment seems to beckon me toward “the blossoming”… The moment when I embrace all that I am, all that I have already been, and all that I am yet to become…. When the momentum of my life and my thoughts and my feelings converge into a tsunami of sparkling “me”-ness… When I am truly “in the flow” of my true potential and bathing in this fountain where the idealistic energy of youth meets the tempered wisdom of maturity…
Yes, dear friends, today the world invites us to become “the flow-ers” in this secret garden that some might even call Eden. The more diverse the variety of blooms, the more spectacular is the vision. Be the rose! Be the violet! Be the sunflower or the cactus bloom! Be the blossom that has never been seen in this garden before!
The Universe schools us with many forms of beauty and success. Some like the mountains take millions of years to evolve and they endure great change. Others like the firefly are brilliant in their brief moment to shine. There is no one perfect model nor one definition of success. All seem to require contrast in order to thrive in its full glory. Days of rain…days of sunshine…even hurricane and fire sculpt the complexion of our mighty planet. The genius is in the harmony of the vibrant “now” moment with the ever evolving “eternity”. Billions of beings simultaneously adding their essence to the richness of one orbiting globe…
So here we stand caught (or reveling in) our own tiny moment. What will define us–or better yet, how will we define ourselves? Are we a collection of hurricanes and hardships–or are we the glistening beaches and the sunsets so spectacular that they take our breath away?
…Or perhaps we too are a microcosm where there will be wind, rain and times of devastation but perhaps it is the combination of these moments of both hardship and glory that creates the masterpiece that we call Life. It is this harmony of sun and rain that within which lies the secret to our well being.. Yes we “flow” … We become… But this is how we come to know and to fully embrace the meaning and potential value of the entity that we call “I”.
May this be a day when you are reveling in the “I” of your (yes it is) PERFECT storm!
