Day 308 – Stay Open

April 10, 2014

Good morning World,

This is going to be a short one. I have to get ready for work real soon. I just want to take a moment to check in, though, and step away from the world of appearances.

I’ve been real busy. But let’s just step away for a moment. Fires will always be there to put out. There will always be something to do. Some reaching, some wanting. Something.

Allah, for a moment, please allow me to see a moment of Truth and Peace. I am not weary, although my life says I should be. I am not even tired although my body says I should be. My Spirit is strong and alive and I am hopeful. Things fall apart and they come together. It is the way of the world.

Peace anyway. Love anyway. Breathe anyway. Let the small stuff be what it is: small stuff. Do not get stuck in the heartbreak and disappointment. Do not get stuck in the bitterness. Don’t you see how bad it feels to be stuck in all the mud? Enough already. Just don’t get stuck. I know the world will tell you different. I know so many people are busy burning fires and warring and crying and dying and begging and being mean and everything else. I know so many people are broken. Even you. Even us.

I know we do not have all the things we want. Even me. But we have everything we need. You understand? There is air in this moment and there will be food and water. There is love even in you right now and there are hands to hold if you open yours. There is enlivening work. I know you have bills to pay and you can’t figure out how to get from here to there and prince charming didn’t get the memo that he’s supposed to be here already. But just because you’re not aware of a solution doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Just because Prince Charming hasn’t kissed you yet doesn’t mean he’s not somewhere brushing his teeth right now. On his way.

Know that answers exist. Know that peace exists. Stay open. Stay open. Know that the little things and the solutions you see are just a part of it. Just a small part of it,. The world is pretty magical. I’m not talking about things that I don’t know. I’m alive today when I thought I would be dead and me, who couldn’t get off my bed, well, life is good for me even on the “bad” days. I know what I’m talking about. Give the small stuff a break. Above all else, stay open.
