Become a living spirit. Embody the depth of the being that you are.
.
Don't you dare be satisfied with business as usual, the robotic connections--"would you like paper or plastic." You've been given the most holy of experiences. Don't waste it on banal platitudes and forgetfulness. You've got eyes and ears and a mouth and a nose and a brain and a heart, and also something else that you'll never really understand that allows everything to Be, and even seem oddly normal. Don't let your life begin to feel normal or routine, or, worst of all, boring. Can you maintain your doings in the world and also be utterly in awe and wonder and full of Spirit?

Now, some of you have read this far are probably rolling your eyes. Meaning, this either sounds like "crunchy granola stuff," and you can't relate, or you're in it, with me...you feel what I'm trying to impart. We're all on the road of unfolding consciousness. Some of us are quite grounded in this material world and happy as can be watching the drama of the mind and politics unfolding, where science is the end. On the other end of the spectrum some of y'all are blissed-out with ecstatic feelings of God and Oneness and most folks have no idea what plane you exist on, whatever that may be. And others, too, are somewhere in between these extremes of awareness of consciousness becoming aware of itself.

So I just ask that you try to expand and broaden your horizon of beliefs of who and what you are. I'm not sure of much, but I'm confident that there's more than meets the eye. While the ceremony and texts and words of the various religious and spiritual traditions may be different, trust that they are all pointing to the same thing--even Buddhism, which professes no God, asks us to peel back the layers of delusion and seek the grace that is always right here and exists in all.

So today consider, if you'd like, that you're far more than meets the eye. In fact, you're also far more than meets your own mind. Your mind thinks you're all messed up and not enough or too much and need to be fixed. But that story making mind machine of yours is not you. The spirit that sits quietly watching all this drama unfold if your unflickering flame. Be that today. Even just as an experiment. Be the wisdom of the universe, without title or pretext or dogma or verse. Just embody the boldest and most awakened qualities you can muster. Today. Right now.
