In a few short hours from now, I'll have been on this planet for exactly 32 years - plus womb time, I guess. It's been a pleasure, I have to say. Not that there haven't been nightmarish patches, but oh, my god, what a sweet, sweet dream it's been for the most part. From here, this present moment, my life story is just that...a story. As told by the mind, with it's limited recollections and biased filter. But honestly, it's a story that I cherish, and as time goes on, respect, more and more.
If waking up to my true nature is what this trip is all about, and I believe that it is, and if shedding the egoic beliefs and behaviors that keep me shackled in Maya has been the goal, and I believe that it is and has been, then I'm right on track. I'm understanding more while at the same time not knowing anything for sure - it's a good spot to be in. It's humbling; it's a challenge; it's terribly exciting!
Thank you, Life. For letting me be here, to be a part of this. Thank you for what I was born in to. I have been blessed beyond measure. Thank you for the people and places that I've known. I've had the best set of circumstances and the best cast of characters to grow with - partners come to shake me awake, both the "heroes" and "villains." So nerve-wracking, funny, cutting and Good - they're all You underneath. Of all the things you've given me, the revelation that All is You has been the sweetest, most beneficial gift I ever could be given. I don't want to waste the invitation. I'm doing my best here with everything, I hope you know that. I hope you're proud of me. I am grateful for every year, day, and breath I've been given. Thank you, Life, for having me at all.
