Day Twenty: This is My Life, 2

This is my life in gravity, this is my life in…

This is my life right now.

We’ve “done” this before.

Good, we can do this again, with the results you will discover for yourself.

This moment, while you read or hear these words: This is your life. The moments on the toilet, in the shower, getting into your car, getting out of your car, “thinking” about what you are going to or “have to” do, this is your life.

The time spend worrying or arguing or regretting or planning or gossiping or talking mindlessly, or mindfully, on the phone or in the grocery store: this is your life.

At work, you are looking at a computer, talking to someone, pounding in a nail, lifting a rock, soothing a child: this is your life.

And let’s make it bigger and more concrete: as you say, over and over, “This is my life,” sense your skeleton, the five lines of it all, of you all, the legs, arms, spine thing.

Want to really know it’s your life?. Aware yourself of the sound coming in your ears. And light coming in your eyes.

This is our life.


It’s a big and interesting world, and as we move in it and interact, and act, and stop and start and speak and be silence and eat and walk and sit: this is our life.
