There are times when we are fortunate to experience big moments of awareness but most days it’s about finding the mystery in the every day. We don’t have to be on a mountaintop or amidst the wildlife on a safari to experience the cosmic dance. We only need to be awake and alert to all that is right before us. Every person, creature, plant and star that comes together forms the energy we call love—the energy that we experience all day long—the invitation to join the cosmic dance.

May I appreciate the experiences that come every day.


Make the effort to be aware of what you are experiencing in daily living.
