I feel ALIVE every single moment I am conscious enough to realize how blessed I am. Sometimes I don’t feel as though I have much to do with my life at all. It’s like I am here and my life is out there somewhere doing stuff and taking names. I know that may sound like 10 lbs of crazy in a 2 lb bag but it’s how I feel.
When I force myself to remain present. Lean into whatever is going on around me I appreciate life more. I feel it and it makes me grateful for my incredible aliveness. How can you be grateful if you can’t feel what is going on? If life were a classroom there would be entire years where I received a D for attendance.
Well, the simplest answer would be to say that it is often easier to not feel anything. Even something that feels pretty good can be an assault on the senses if you aren’t able to appreciate it for what it is. When you want this and you are receiving that you leave the table feeling hungry, sad, mad. You don’t get that just the fact that you aren’t getting what you are asking for is a blessing in of itself.
We all have some kind of pain we are loathe to give up. An old grievance. An unrequited love. A difficult passage of some kind. Holding onto these things is another way of not remaining present. Why give your heart away to a hurt from the past? To something that was never right in the first place? There is no such thing as closure. There is only letting go.
How do we become more conscious? How do we begin to cherish our time here on earth and not miss out on so much?
You see, life is to be loved the way we started out loving it as children. Long before we learned how to judge what we think is good or bad we loved life. We woke up everyday with open arms and hearts and a warm embrace for life. We need to remember how to love life again for its mystery. Love it for its constant surprise. Love it for the music we are sure to hear if we allow ourselves to be quiet enough. Love and recognize the treasures it brings to us without asking for all that much in return.
Just a little gratitude. Our constant Source.
We send… Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss for the Highest Good of All.
And so it is!
