We inhabit a living world

Of dreams waiting to be manifested

Continually on the brink of becoming reality

 

The possibilities sparkle all around us

 

Look at the trees ... If left alone to multiply, they stretch to infinity

Enlivening the entire Earth

Gifting us the oxygen we need to survive and thrive

Funneling nutrients through the soil to benefit trees and other creatures

Providing a habitat for countless plants and animals

 

Look at the endless blue sky

It encompasses us

It opens up for us

It brings us sunlight, or rain, or cleansing wind: Whatever we need most: All those blessings that the sun and our atmosphere can shower down upon us

 

Think of the animals

All over the planet

Growing, evolving, adapting, changing the surface of the Earth with their activities, 

Brightening our spirits just by existing

Think of how many different species

Exist across the globe

So many incredibly varied life forms

Millions that we have not even discovered yet

Each living in their own special way

Upon the same Earth as us

 

Consider our human brains:

Incredible computers that can process anything,

Receive divine inspiration,

Create new ideas never heard of before,

And come up with the technology and architecture to build something never seen before.

We are programmed to cradle and comfort a tiny baby

With the same ease that we communicate wirelessly

Or navigate outer space

Or paint a masterpiece

 

Think of the universe, stretching to infinity in all directions

And the wonders it holds!:

Planets of every size and description,

Comets and stardust and asteroids and moons

And exploding stars that are right now creating the matter that might make up our ancestors far in the future

Just as the explosions of billions of years ago created the elements that form our bodies today.

 

There are no limits to what we can do.

 

The universe and the vast expanses of sky and the happy proliferation of trees speak to this truth, if we would only listen.

 

Tune in to your intuition:

It feels like freedom.

 

Tune into the creative possibilities that you are capable of:

It feels like eternity.

 

Tune in to life itself:

It feels like magic.

 

It IS magic.

 

And all of this is within us

Within every cell of our bodies;

All of this is available at our fingertips.

 

Nothing is impossible.

 

We just need

To break free

From all expectations and perceived limits

And then we will soar

Higher than we ever dreamed

Connected to all that is

And living our truest, deepest, most potential-filled

LIFE.
