What are you going to do with your one wild and precious life?
“To live in gratitude is to enjoy every moment of this precious gift that comes from God.”
don Miguel Ruiz
Yes. Your one wild and precious life Mary Oliver describes is being lived through a pandemic. You are being challenged with discouraging and disruptive issues. Physical, intellectual, emotional trauma. But it is YOUR “one wild and precious life”. And it counts.
What are you going to do with it?
You are going to start with facing the reality of what is. You are going to use your considerable emotional intelligence to see FOR YOURSELF what there is to know. Not blindly follow the interpretations of others nor the exaggerations and hyperbole of their theories.
You are going to ask YOUR heart how it wants to respond and see what brings you calm and peace. What action you can take to make a difference in this devastating experiment your soul has volunteered to be a part of.
You are going to recognize the profound significance of your participation. The depth and intensity of this moment. And the glorious opportunity you have to support, encourage and influence others. To work with your global family to collectively move planet earth into a new dimension.
Yes. It is a wild and simultaneously precious time. There is work to be done. And you are here to do it.
