You made it!
Out of all the possible manifestations and expressions that exist in the universe, here you are.
We know that the universe consists of mostly the same materials, and that those similar materials are combined to make various 'expressions' and 'forms.' Some of these are what we call 'inanimate,' while others are 'animate' or 'life forms.' The vast majority of the universal forms are relatively still. They are not considered 'alive.' They are part of the 'stuff.'
Plants and animals are considered life forms and represent a relatively small portion of the universal expressions. Out of all that is alive, a very small portion is called 'animal,' as compared to plants. Out of all that is animal, a very small portion are what we call 'intelligent life,' those forms that appear to have free will, drive, sentience, and so on. Out of all the 'intelligent' forms of life that we know of, a very small portion are human, those animals with the greatest capacity for thinking (i.e., reasoning, categorizing, problem solving, etc.).
You are a member of that extremely small group of expressive forms. You made it. You are here!
Out of all the manifestations that you could have been, you become a human life–for a while.
When we are born, we somehow understand just how unlikely it is to have a human life–or really any life at all. We are in a seemingly constant state of bewilderment and awe. Suddenly, we are born. We are sensing, feeling, touching, hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting. We are interacting with the known world and everything is changing around and inside us. It is an amazing journey that is like nothing else. It's wonderful!
From nowhere, we enter the now here.
It is the most unlikely condition that will ever exist, for once you return, you will not remember this journey. This is your time.
How will you spend it? Will you remain is a state of wonderment and awe? Will you wake each day and be amazed at the fact that you can breath, touch, see, hear, and experience the world is so many different ways? Or–will you focus on striving, earning money, solving problems, getting ahead, planning for the future, fixing the past, and suffering along the way?
Is it possible to earn money and remain is a state of wonderment? Why not!
Your Thoughtfulness Practice:
Stop. Do not DO anything. Be.
Feel the feeling of being alive, of being breathed by the universe, of being held in the arm of nature, of having the energy of universal love flow through you. Do not TRY. Just be. Feel this happening in every moment. There is nothing you can do to change the presence of love. You can; however, miss this moment and all the miracles that come with it.
You are Here.
Experience your beingness.
This is love.
