SOAPBOX® mini-motivation: how you livin’?

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience”     ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, philosopher, priest & paleontologist

So…whatcha been doing lately?  You know, in between the walking, talking, breathing, building, writing, cooking, sleeping, cleaning, fighting, birthing, driving, primping, disciplining, and sitting.  Shall I surmise a list? Perhaps you’ve been…

thinking… feeling… loving… hoping… dreaming… praying… delighting… wondering… visualizing… caring… reflecting…

apologizing… relaxing… promising… compromising… trusting… laughing… celebrating… befriending… worrying…

forgiving… sharing… surrendering… performing… smiling… preaching… planning… empathizing… believing… creating…

Every nook and cranny of each day of your life is filled with the seemingly intangible substance of the spirit, as you act the role of a human being.  The fluff of stuff of the heart and mind that your body simply helps carry out…if only to hold you upright…is the weight of your person.  It makes YOU, folks.  When you accept that there is a hellluvalot more going on in each passing moment, the squishy “spiritual” verbiage becomes more digestible and believable.  The underconversation of your purpose and own melodic magic drown out the minutia of doing… and allows you to excel in all of your being.   Cheers to your experience.     ~ KD

SOAPBOX of the week: Spirit of survival

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.”     – Gospel of Thomas

Our entire lives, we’re consumed with acquiring “the right gear” to survive “the game of life.”  We prepare for rough terrain, erratic weather, restless natives, and, of course, limited supplies!  Then we create safe havens in which to hide and hoard our gear.  It’s always all about “the stuff’ you can “stuff” around you.  Yet, when it comes down to brass tacks, the toys and tools aren’t your saving grace.  What is…is the “stuff” within you.  Gut instincts, a sense of humor, personal faith, the drive to succeed, integrity and the ability to love.  Trust that it’s exactly what you need to navigate safely, and your abundant stash will never run out.
