You’ve got to say yes to this miracle of life as it is, not on the condition that it follows your rules. Otherwise, you’ll never get through to the metaphysical dimension.*
We make our biggest contribution when we dare to do what only a handful will do. Being one of the few is underrated.**
I wish that I could describe the blue of the sky that awaited me this morning.
On a crisp, still, icy morning I looked up in awe at the sky that was later than night but not yet morning. Soon a new day would begin and I couldn’t help but ponder:
What if this were the first day of a new possibility?
A day in which I could whole-mindedly, -heartedly and -bodily invest myself.
What is the story I will tell myself towards this? Before the other stories kick in?
What will be the thing I do that is different to what others are doing?
It’s true of every day, it’s real for each of us:
‘The most important things in life require that you bring your own urgency. Passion is the fuel that brings urgency.’^
