It’s subtle…

…and so easy to miss.

The steam rising from the coffee in your hands…

…the curious wonder in your child’s eye.

The inhale that’s never missed following up your exhale…

…the smile from a stranger that peels away your label of ‘strange’.

Most will settle today for a drama they think they’ve been cast for. They will drink and drink of gossip, blame until their blue in the face, become the victim at any cost and live into the belief that it’s all going to hell in a handbasket.

What if heaven is at our fingertips?

What we seek, we find.

So the question is, “What are we seeking?”

Unity or uniformity?

Meaning or money?

Connection or correctness?

Symphony or cynicism?

Banquets or battles?

Only a mindset that is empowered from the heart space will be able to grasp the peace available here that eventually surpasses our ego’s need to understand.

Your dreaded and cherished illusions…

What will you do with these this week?

Before you can penetrate the illusion and touch reality you must first find the courage to simply look at them.

The look itself is bravery.

Perhaps some of the illusions need to be thanked for their time thus far. Or maybe the chord just needs to be cut.

Either way, liberation is available on the other side of the look and of the letting go.

And don’t go looking for keys.

Reality is always locked from the inside.

Noticing…

…begins with ‘no’.

If there is a muscle we need to build, it’s most definitely our ‘no’ muscle.

The clues we’re looking for are contingent on this and they will not appear by saying ‘yes’ to all of our options.

Your Beauty Radar

Your beauty radar is always scanning to receive the wonderful memos of the universe.

However, the intel from this radar can be difficult to receive if other radars hold more importance in your life. Radars like the good/bad radar, the right/wrong radar, the in/out radar, the win/lose radar, the friend/foe (enemy) radar, and so forth.

Is it possible that you could allow your beauty radar to scan today and take the risk of pulling the plug on these others?

Today, notice how strange and lovely the lettuce hangs off of your plate…behold how the last drop of wine cries down your glass…sway with the swaying cottonwood…gaze into the windy sequins of the aspens…ride the wave of your child’s trademarked laugh…listen to the orchid’s whisper…thank the cardinal’s song…taste the coffee more than you feel the caffeine…and, if you can, see how something imperfect actually looks, feels, or becomes something you would label as perfect.

It appears that part of our work of being human in this day and age is going to be in cultivating the presence, awareness, and posture to receive such mysterious memos from this enchanted world that we’ve been entrusted.

We will never be able to give what we have not received.
