“Lifted and dropped enough by life, I finally put down the yearning that kept prodding me with the misperception, “If I could just get over there, then I would be fully alive.” I am already fully alive. You are already fully alive. We all are. By following our passion, we just become more of who we are. We just brighten like the sun, which doesn’t go anywhere. We are not chasing truth. We are becoming truth.” — Mark Nepo, Falling Down and Getting Up: Discovering Your Inner Resilience and Strength
In the pause of stillness.
Light and with ease.
May you know the expanse of what already is present.
Overflowing with anticipation of what will bloom from the roots of where you are planted now.
Becoming, allowing and unfolding are the journey we are on.
Grounded in today.
“As great a tool as the intellect is, the mind chases, while the heart grounds. And so, a liability of the mind is that it seduces us to believe that life is always over there. But through great love and great suffering, the heart discovers, again and again, that life is always where we are—always here. This sometimes painful and sometimes tender realization grounds us in our lives and in life itself.” — Mark Nepo, Falling Down and Getting Up: Discovering Your Inner Resilience and Strength
