When you forget, what do you do to remember?
.
Forget what? Grace, God, Wholeness, Perfection, Oneness, Divinity, It, Kali, Krishna, Buddha, Alah, Jesus, The Mother, Rama... you know... IT!
.
OR perhaps you say "I don't believe in God." That's okay! What do you believe in? What makes you stop in awe? What makes you feel truly grateful for simple things? What makes you remember you’re part of something far bigger and wiser and more ancient than little ol' you? This is what I'm talking about. If science and evolution satisfy your existential angst -- if that's enough to make you feel totally mind-blown by reality, perfect. But FEEL mind/heart/soul blown! It doesn't always just happen naturally. Sometimes it takes getting quiet and absolutely still to feel your connection to everything in this moment. Allow life and sustenance and death to co-exist right now. Trust in the mystery and majesty of that which is in front of and behind your eyes. Be okay not knowing and just being absolutely amazed by THIS. It's important that we don't spend all of our time just following our senses and to-do lists and "shoulds." Remember that you're a little piece if something absolutely perfect and quite ancient and really beyond understanding, despite your opinions and feelings and personal journey through it all.

So when I forget (and I forget TOO often), I get quiet, I go into nature, I look deeply into another's eyes, I watch trees be trees, and squirrels just squirreling. I step back from ME and MY and step into pure amazement and I feel unfettered joy. It's not easy, but this is why we practice. OM
