Good morning life, I love you.
.
Thank you for mitosis and meiosis and your ever-continuous splitting and joining of cells keeping this body breathing and heart-beating and this consciousness, Being.
.
You woke up today to eyes that open (if you're reading this), fingers that wiggle and grip and also release, and a nose what whiffs in the odors of everything. You've been offered a body and a whole host of senses and sensations and ideas and feelings that attempt to orient you back into regularity...a sense and rememberable of "oh yes, here I am again, Alive." And so you are, maybe. Are you really awake to it all, or sleep walking though this day? Or wake walking through your dreams?
.
One of the most ever present questions I am asking myself is: am I REALLY awake right now? I don't mean this in a "am I in the Matrix?" way; rather, am I Present? Most of the time, the answer is, of course (kind of sadly), no. Usually I'm stuck in mind stuff of past and future, sometimes thousands of miles and maybe years away from here and now. So I use the tools of yoga, meditation, pranayama, making love and, sometimes, writing for Instagram to re-arrive in the glorious NOW. Life happens here, not there. Do not be confused and don't forget.... remember, you DO or DON'T right now. Now is always the time.
.
Now go do it! Or, just as importantly, don't! But whatever you do, act lucidly, and in the space that is nestled between inhale and exhale, your life Lives! I love you sweet human. Thank you for swimming through the sea of consciousness with me. May your voyage be safe, and also a little exciting and kind of dangerous, too. And remember none of us get out of this alive, so go all in.
