We live in amazing times, we can build big buildings, invent the internet, send people walking across the moon, create fancy Iphones, keep breasts young forever, make vitamins to give you energy, and Viagra to keep it up and Prozac to keep it down, build bombs to wipe out millions in a second, launch 500 channels, create complex car navigation systems, invent new weight loss programs…
Yet, we still live in a world were children are starving, millions are homeless, we don’t teach kids how to love or truly communicate. We have lots of sex, but don’t make love. Bigger bank accounts, but less fulfillment. Faster cars, but no time. More options, but less patience. More education, but less sense. More technology, but less touch.
You can clean the air, but the pollution is in the soul. This is the real hole. The most important resource isn’t simply time, oil, money or gold…it’s LOVE. Without this we may have everything, but life is nothing.
So, what is your life about…what is your life about? You can travel the world. Go to great temples or churches to pray. You can worship the most beautiful statues, read the most profound scriptures…yet right in front of you is a living expression of divinity. Take a look at your children, your spouse, your parents, your brother, your co-worker, or the homeless person, your friend…there is just one. Yet, we wait to meet the Dalai Lama, the Great Guru or the Pope for some kind of hope…waiting for the right moment or special person when right in front of you is a Living Buddha, a Living Christ in the form of the Man staring at you. The whole world is your temple, synagogue or church. Just remember, it is in your heart. This is where we must all start. Each moment is the opportunity.
So…At least once a day; Forgive, Reach Out, Hug, Cry, Laugh, Connect. At least once a day; Trust, Look, Sing, Dance, Make a Fool of Yourself, Risk. At least once a day; Give, Touch, Taste, Smile, Wait, Communicate. At least once a day; Smell, Relax, Joke, Feel…and, Yes…Serve. And most all, remember to say, “I Love You.” When you dare to open your heart and Love, you are Free. This is Living…Infinity! Is there really anything else to do? Is there REALLY anything else to do? But, LOVE NOW….LOVE NOW!
And So It Is…
