Spend long enough in the world of helping and healing you eventually come to reflect on what it is that makes things better, that makes life better for those who are ill or unhappy.
Yes we are flooded with information about what to eat and how to eat it, what to do and how to do it, what to be and how to be it, what to read, hear, say, how to behave, to be mindful, to be spontaneous, and we read watch or hear all that advice and make all those resolutions and form intentions…and then…?
So many of the wise, the great and the good, the enlightened and the endarkened, share their knowledge, experience, philosophy – and where are you now? How have you changed? What have you changed? In yourself or in others? How do you capture the magic of that moment when you inspire, or are inspired? And then, how do you sustain it, that moment, that resolution, that intention, through slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or insidious traps of infinite options?
Or do you let it pass, fade softly without further thought, into the brambled tangled wilderness of best left alone, of aversion to risk or challenge, rationalised and analysed until paralysed, and then forgotten?
Can we grasp the song that sings in our heart? And keep on singing until those vibrations rise to hammer on heaven’s door and carry us onward upward inward transcending the mundane, altering the celestial cellular memory to hold the magic in the moment and let that moment live in time for all time is now, and now, and now!
Where you want to be?
Doing what you want to do?
With whom you want to be?
Were you, yesterday? last week, last month, last year – all your life?
Will you be, tomorrow? next week, next month, next year – all your life?
Does your heart sing? What would it take to make it, to make life better?
