Act appropriately, and with appreciation. Respond rightfully, though respectfully. Go gracefully, but with gusto. It is not easy being completely immersed in the immediate moment, seamlessly becoming a full part of all that’s happening around you. To experience the moment for what it is, and not for what you want it to be, is a way forward to freedom. Each hour, minute, second–holds the capacity for One to experience life as an acute, integrated observer. In this state, One can recognize the importance of themselves just being there as part of a miraculous picture being painted by the One. (more…)

Each day, most of us pass through the same streets guided by our inner autopilot. Over trust in where we’re going and how to get there dulls our senses, and the scene around us. We become indifferent to the small wonders that lie in each predictable step or ride through reminiscent routes.

Earth herself, is a redeemer. She accepts all that dies into herself and regenerates all anew. She transforms decay into development, and waste into growing wonder.

We have disregarded her patience–trying to convince ourselves that we have control over the redemption of things in life we all need to survive: food, water, air.
This is a gross mistake.
