compared to the grandeur around us,
but we are the height of creation;
The top of the top.
We have within us
the ability to facilitate
The expansion and management of creation.
We have been given the honor
of being guardians of the grandness.
But we also have the capacity to facilitate
the diminishment and mismanagement
of our resources.
We live in a contentious time
of our own making,
but the cormorant, the whale, the tiger,
the honey bee--even Source itself--
holds no grudge.
They allow us to ask ourselves,
"What's my part?"
and trust us to course-correct.
It requires enrolling ourselves
and each other in the process.
When we do a good job,
we can gaze from where we are
at the awesomeness
of our responsiblity
and our stewardship.
Our egos are defending themselves at our expense.
We cannot afford the big sleep.
We cannot get to satisfaction
Whatever we resist persists.
The wind, the wild thing,
says thank you,
when we work on ourselves,
when we arise in mastery,
when we awaken.
Success and Failure
have their own rewards.
Each day, each moment,
the choice is ours.
