Friends,

Here are a few of the many questions I’ve been thinking about lately:

  • What empowers the Yearning to live a life rich in Spirit?
  • What draws us beyond self-focused comforts, both internal and external, to experience the great satisfaction of contributing to the well-being of others? 
  • What can be done to strengthen the capacities that motivate us to transform the fears that hold us back?

I, and most of you who are reading this, are most likely living in situations in which we can meet our basic needs, we are safe in the sense that we don’t have to focus our attention each day on whether we will survive, and in which we have the freedom to live our lives according to what we value as long as it doesn’t bring direct harm to others.

Because of this, it feels essential that we remember our responsibility to go beyond these comforts and contribute whatever we can that serves the needs of something or someone beyond ourselves. Whenever we experience the extraordinary gifts of Beauty that this planet provides, let us make use of those experiences to remind ourselves of our brothers and sisters in situations whose contribution is to survive one more day. They reinforce that Field of survival on behalf of the planet and humanity, and we all benefit from it.

This brings us to the essential questions in the present moment:

  •  Today, in whatever way is possible, what Field of Spirit do you choose to strengthen?                                                                                                        
  •  Right now, and as you go through the day, what Beauty inspires you to Remember your part?

May our inspirations lead us to great contributions!
