Created in beauty and secretly sustained all the while by beauty, you surrender now to ultimate awakening.*
I didn’t set the alarm on my fitbit.
I was trying to get back to sleep, lingering in bed because I thought it was five, but it had gone seven and I needed to be up at six.
When I discovered this, I was fully awake.
There’s an equivalent here with beauty.
For a start, none of know know quite what we’re capable of: unexplored continents of possibility.
We’re waiting for an alarm to go off, for something to happen that will be significant, life-transcending, and all the time we could have been up to the adventure of exploring more beauty.
The reason we’re really positioned is because we are who we are.
