What is life all about? Is it about acquiring or is it about releasing? Is it about movement or is it about stillness? Am I an island or am I a node in a network? Is life about rigidity or is it about perspective? What is happiness? Is it a transient feeling or a state of permanence? How can one define it? When I say I am happy what am I actually saying? Am I saying that everything is under control or am I saying that control is not an issue? What do relationships mean to me? Am I just me or a product of my relationships? What does security mean to me? Does loneliness scare me? What does approval mean to me? Do I feel deprived without it or does my concept of self allow me to truly be myself without needing approval?
As I ask myself these questions today, I wonder, and I am grateful that I can wonder – As I reach out to the core of myself, I feel like a seeker and a novice, approaching life with flexible boundaries, allowing myself to wander in the stillness of life where beauty and love abound – where I just am, just being, waiting and yet realizing that there is nothing to wait for, that the present is now, and all that can happen is happening now… already.
I feel like sharing this moment with all of you – and hope that you will share your moments with me… and together let us connect to be all that we can, all that which is possible, all that and more…
