Say hello to LOVE, teaching us by example how we push and pull away from the LIGHT as it is reflected back to us, in our behaviors, our speech, our unevenness, and our current incapacity to hear the unique music of ‘other’ as LOVE speaking.
All roads lead to home, are HOME Itself. In our humanness, we mirror and offer rare gifts to one another, seeing in the ‘other’ reflection of self. Saint/sinner, lover/hater, brilliant/irrelevant, abuser/innocent, all illuminations of the Divine Dreamer, manifest here. All illusion of ‘other’ yet magnificently so, as that is the way of LOVE.
Divine Dreamer’s dreaming of the dream is never in error, always in wonder, forever in awe. All is revealed in yet another window, so far unseen. Undoubtedly, challenging aberrations appear to arise on our beloved earth, and beautifully inspire us into action, creation, compassion, work.
May we do this work, caring for the poor, the suffering, the lonely, the broken, and the unheld, not through ridiculing or abandoning 'culprits', but through awakening again and again to the ONE HEART of LOVE, recalling that poverty lives not only in the body, but also in the heart, and that LOVE denies no one true understanding, as the eyes blink open to see.
You are so loved

The invitation is to leave it alone. To let life be. To know yourself as being lived. That is what is happening here. Life is alive as you, through your breath, through your being. Don't look for it elsewhere. It does you and undoes you, over and over again. You are not the doer. Stop claiming that you are, and your relentless despair of knowing you are not, will dissolve. The belief in the doer, in the future, in something rich and magical beyond this place, is what deadens you, and crushes your heart. The belief in something greater than this has held you captive, left you for dead. And yet you fear death. The only death you will ever know is this lifeless longing. Question these beliefs, awaken from them, and live it out loud. Then you will know yourself as boundless life, as freedom, and your body will age and die fully alive, without regret, endlessly beautiful.
