Just say “Hello, Life!”


You are Life

You are eternal

You are truly beautiful

You are enough

You are real

Don’t give in to impressions

Sensorial or abstract concepts

These are nothing more than fantasies,

make-believes, stories, magic shows

designed by ego-mind to distract your attention

And kill your spirit.

It might seem ego-mind is successful in the world

But that’s just another story.

Anchor your attention in what is

Beyond what you see, hear and touch

Beyond all mental thought constructions

That which cannot be spoken of

Only discovered

By grace.

Stay alert, eyes wide open, senses turned on. You don’t want to miss it. As soon as it shows its head, jump right into it. Hold nothing back. You’ve got to ride and stay on that magic carpet. Get into the game!” Theo sat back on his desk chair, rocking and turning his back to his computer. Something was missing, some essential piece. He decided to ask Mira for her perspective.–You’ve been up early again, haven’t you, whispered Mira as if she didn’t want to wake herself completely just yet. She placed her hand on his shoulder, slowly bended over him and gave him a “good morning” kiss, with raspberry flavor.–Mmm, raspberry clafoutis … For breakfast! Only you make me realize I am hungry. Mira opened her hand and placed a cluster of red beads filled with sweet nectar… (excerpt from “Theo and Mira, Loving Life”)
