A Cup of Water

“Creativity and imagination are not frosting on a cake: They are integral to our sustainability. They are survival mechanisms. They are of the essence of who we are. They constitute our deepest empowerment.”― Matthew Fox

Dehydrated and dry from cynicism, duality, assumption, judgment, comparison, counting, scarcity and sheer lack of imagination, we seek waterfalls, oceans, distant shores just out of reach in the land of “someday when…” to be complete.
When our circumstances change, when others change, surely not me, when my political party is in control, when I win, when the stars align…
A false narrative that steals this day. Fiction and flat.
Discover and drink from the oasis of the present moment sparked by gratitude, awareness and wonder.
Drink the cup of water in front of you and offer one to others.
There’s plenty and it’s more than enough.
A cup of encouragement, joy, beauty, laughter, discernment, optimism, abundance, clarity, love to rehydrate, satisfy, refresh and reshape the world.
If we don’t recognize the blessings already present, how will we identify anything new?
Radical amazement, cup overflowing.

“To see ourselves as we truly are—a wisp of love itself—is perhaps our deepest fear. But it is also our greatest grace. If we are to be the new human, we must begin by embracing love, which always seeks to incarnate itself. Love is enfleshed everywhere. Everywhere the Holy One is shouting and whispering, ‘Let me love you.’ And all that is asked of us is to receive. In reality, that is our life’s work. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less.” – Judy Cannato
