Shadow behavior. Seeking a savior. From ourselves.
I want to loose a LOVE story, about Nature's GLORY,
and how She gives us EV-E-RY-THING.
Everything we've ever sipped, eaten, worn, written on, lathered with, lived in…
ALL of our basic needs are met by Her resources.
Rich forces of good, wood, vegetable, fruit, oil, cotton, seasonings, paper, pigment…
where do we think these commodities come from?
Wal-Mart? Not originally. The earbuds or speakers you're using
to listen to this RIGHT NOW,
were sourced from something deep down inside Her.
It's right to pause... and calmly reflect on those gifts. With thanks.
She offers up PHYSICAL ELEMENTS for our human experiments
and, honestly, the least we can do is respectfully acknowledge
the Living Source from which our luxuries flow.
If we could hear the pulse that beats behind the purchase,
would we feel differently about it?
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
