Original > Another

This can be just another Monday.

A groggy attempt to reclaim weekend highs with a frustrated posture for wherever you may find yourself in spirit, mind, and body.

Or it can be magical, majestic, and pregnant with possibility and hope.

It can be just another ________

…or it can be an original.

Maybe your children are offering you a song that welcomes you back to your original child-likeness. Remember that ‘you’? That you never had a business card and won’t ever need one either.

Perhaps the sun that will warm your skin today is the same sun humming a tune into the dirt and vines on your block ushering spring into being out of the muck of autumn’s decay. Could the bloom(s) of spring be millions of lovely questions and affirmations bursting specifically for you? If you listen closely, you can hear them exude via color “I’m an original…and so are you!”

Or maybe this monotonous Monday has an agenda that is woven with earth and Heaven? And what if that agenda could use a conduit, a bridge, or a medium to transport something that, end the end, could transform something? What if that conduit was you? What if you were also meant to be in on the transformation?

Call it whatever you need to.

Just don’t call it Monday.

That carries too much baggage.

You’ve been given wings to go somewhere new, eyes to see with possibility, and hands to paint with hope.

Learning

Simply put, learning is the space, the practice, the river, and the discipline that happens in between our knowing and unknowing.

It isn’t a journey into more knowing.

It’s the experience through what you know into what you don’t know.

And once you make it though the unknown you exit on the other side with a little more light, insight, and awe. And, hopefully, that new bit of light shines its rays on even more WONDERful questions to journey through.

Learning sounds a lot like faith doesn’t it?

What if we were more discontent with what we knew and more content with the mysterious places in our hearts and heads?

We would get somewhere.

Somewhere beautiful.

Somewhere our knowing would have never taken us.
