“We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.” ~ Brad Meltzer
“We are so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value – the rapture that is associated with being alive – is what it is all about.” ~ Joseph Campbell
Both of these quotes are among my favorites and, as I move through this journey of life, there are times when they resurface with a new meaning…and so I know I am moving on. A good thing. I recently wrote about Acceptance with a need to be followed by Trust…and then I wondered what next. Certainly a deep breath…and then these two quotes leaped back to remind me that it is only ever about being alive and living that life being in every moment. So that means not worrying about the moment to come or the moment that just passed by.
And in this moment we can be whatever we need to be, in the next moment we will be something else, and that is the rhythm of life.
So today, let’s Be Alive…whatever that means, live it with Rapture. That is what gives it purpose.
