To live! To live free in a mind liberated from the illusion of separation -- to live free in a mind unfettered by "what is": intent upon discovering "what could be"! To live as a mystic -- deep in the exploration of connections, mystery, and possibilities... To live as a healer, as an artist-of-the-daily-moments: constructing beauty in the embrace of wonder... to live as an agent of an unfolding Planetary transformation...
To live on the infinite edge of Imagination! To choose the wild over the comfortable... the Red Rose of Revolution over the ease of selling-out to the lowest bidder... To give up "having more" for the bliss of "enough" for everyone... To silence the midnight voices of hopelessness and despair for the courage of commitment to action for Justice...
To live in the "dare" of a "quantum mysticism" that threads atoms together with the meaning of Love... to meet every "Other" on the plain of compassion... to honor the questions that fly in the face of "reality"... to replace the hammers of competiveness and dogma with the sails of Harmlessness and Wisdom... to understand that we are One Consciousness in the exploration of life possibilities: stepping into Being, into Radiant Delight...
To live an awesome life: now: not waiting for tomorrow: not waiting for the "right moment" or the "sure sign"... Your next breath is the only sign that you need! You were made for this! Take the leap!
