Curious

Do you ever feel like the odd leaf out? Instead of believing it is embarrassing to be red, or simply different, perhaps cultivate a curiosity about this.

Relatively speaking. we are unique individuals in a unique body. Although in an absolute or  energetic sense  we are very much one. We are blessed with the unique opportunity to explore this lifetime, through these eyes, these senses, these experiences.

Herein lies the great and wonder-filled opportunity to honour our individuality while paradoxically at the same time know that there is no separation.  That which animates this person typing is the same as that which manifests you reading. 

Another paradox is that to understand there is no separation between out and in, we simply start from a quiet place to be with. This is meditation. Through meditation we cultivate a relationship with presence.

Exploring these glorious seemingly opposite qualities, one~as ~one and one~with~all, playing together synergistically in this moment is how we come to understand our unique oneness and our holy, wholly wholeness.
