I know I am doing good work.
Even in the moments of fear and doubt.
Because they do come.
I know because when I think of the next 5-10-15-20 years… I can’t WAIT to see what unfolds. AND I know that the only way into the MAGIC of the future, is through the portal of NOW.
It’s a crazy thing.. being human. Learning to balance the vision we crave that is OUT THERE, TOMORROW, SOMEDAY…
and to get to a place where we KNOW, we KNOW that the only way to get THERE, is through HERE.
Even when HERE is crooked, dark, lonely, scary, confusing and overwhelming.
Even when NOW feels like it’s NEVER going to be THERE.
I know you know.
It’s so US to dance this dance.
and so I sit on that pillow, inviting my breath back into NOW, so that I can get a glimpse of THERE.
I’m so impatient.
And then it happens. I see it… I feel it… I’m there..
On that stage
Giving that keynote, on THAT stage…oh my GODDESS
I’m that author who published THAT book with THAT publisher…
I FEEL It…
and then POOF… GONE.
Just like that…
I must learn it all over again.
And then I get it…
I know HOW to GET THERE…
I must play, feel, laugh, cry, dance… NOW…
with the ONE in front of me…
with the silence
with the NOTHING, and the OVERWHELM
And the 3am… why am I doing this?
ALL of it.
It’s the only way THERE.
BE HERE NOW.
Ram Dass was right.
And so I’ll do it all again. Knowing that everything and nothing is what this moment holds.
And I am grateful for another spin on this glorious earth.
