I still can't believe we are alive.

One would think that normalcy would eventually set in--that by now, 30 years into this, living as a "human" (see: alien, creature, animal, spaceman) driving this set of bones around would begin to feel routine.
.
But not even a little bit! Sure, I do have many many moments of forgetfulness where I enjoy all the creature pleasures and comforts that make us forget who/what we are. We numb ourselves with so many things--including good stuff like reading, building companies and even yoga, too! And the numbing isn't bad. Quite the contrary; I think our human pleasures and distractions keep us "sane." They keep us from stopping on the street every five seconds just dumbstruck and staring into space in awe that we are alive and here and breathing at all.
.
I imagine a world in which everyone is consistently in awe and wonder at the nature of the universe--of reality, of consciousness and whatever God is or is not. If we were all in awe, war would stop, materialism and consumerism would fall away, fear would be a thing of the past. We could *finally* become who we are: explorers of the universe --stewards of this fine planet that truly needs our help. We would treat each other as aspects of God. We would wake up and look outside everyday and simply say: "holy shit, I am alive!"
.
Sometimes I'm so perpelxed and amazed that we are here that I just want to jump out of my skin! It feels simultaneously liberating and deeply confining. The human experience is mind boggling, don't you think?!
.
And I look at the manufactured world still deeply in awe. The story of evolution and all of history that lead us to this moment, right now, with me writing, and you reading these thoughts on a little screen is just stupidly incredible. How do we so often forget? Our minds caught in a spiderweb of ideas and thoughts and obsessions and addictions about ME/MY/I that we forget the magic of our present situation that, as of now, still can't quite be explained by science or religion. Stay in the mystery. You really have no idea what's going on. Let's all quit pretending and just do this: 🤷🏻‍♂️

I love you human. Let's yoga -
