Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides. — Lao Tzu
What’s on my mind:
I’ve been thinking about our dear friend who passed 7 months ago in a speed flying accident. Feeling his humor, joy and adventurous spirit. His mother posted the picture below on her Facebook page. I was touched and inspired. Made my heart open, cry and smile.
All is well. Yes, all is well. I am also aware of the pain that so many go through. Part of life is death. We all feel pain and loss. It’s part of the human experience. I choose to celebrate this life I have been gifted. I know I have a choice on how I live my life. I always have a choice. I want to be awake and present to the miracles happening all around me. Now and always.
There is a part of my that can feel the gripping and the desire to control it all. Knowing that I can’t. I can show up with love and live my greatest life to the best of my ability. Some of those days will feel epic and some of those days won’t. Today I’m feeling into the preciousness and the sacredness that is our life. My heart and my thoughts are with those whom are suffering and grieving a loved one.
May we all feel loved, connected, cherished and honored for who we are. May we live authentically and powerfully. May we shine as brightly as we can for as long as our bodies are alive.
Affirmation/Intention: Breathe deeply. I choose to be aware of my breathe. Breathing in and breathing out. I soften my body and mind. I am peace, ease and grace.
