Infuse today with mystery.
.
Or, perhaps more accurately, remember the mystery. Step into the unknown of what was, is and may or may not come. Consider setting aside all your assurances, knowledge, facts, figures and things that you hold to be true. And in this space of "not sure," you find yourself open to infinite possibility. The mundane can become Magnificant--waiting in traffic can be a rich, and dare I say holy experience.
.
To find ourselves entrenched in knowing, facts, absolute confidences, saying/feeling that it IS this way or that...there remains a blindness to the true nature of things that is necessarily unknowable. You DON'T know if it's "good" or "bad." Whether you love or hate our political situation or your current relationships or the size of your bank account doesn't ultimately matter; the unfolding of things has a wisdom and a nature that is beyond all that.
.
I like to think that all the things that seem pretty shitty are doorways to the fantastic, unexplored closets of my mind and soul--that each tug at my heart is a deep teaching that I should lean into. And this isn't about finding the "silver lining" in everything; it's about accepting that you just don't know--ANYTHING! And that's so okay.
.
Step into the mystery of today courageously. What if there were no missteps or messups? What if it was all perfect, however momentarily heart wrenching it may feel to you specifically? Allow yourself to be awed by each sip of air, every touch and glance, and blade of grass and grain of sand and sound and smell and the crunching of dry leaves beneath your bare feet. Tune into the mystery, set down the story. Allow it all to be exactly what it is, without all the commentary, even for just a moment.
