The Universe is Sending You an Evite

Dear Beloved Child,

I am sending you this Evite to invite you to step up and meet your full potential. I have actually sent you this Evite many times. You know how, when you don't reply to an Evite, it gets sent to you again and again. Those Evites I sent you could have been in the form of the relationship breakups, the sadistic bosses, the angry road ragers, the judging authority figures, the addictive behavior patterns. I have sent so many Evites. In fact, that's mostly what I do: send Evites to graduation parties. I love celebrating when you graduate to a new level of realizing your potential.

Not only is every human life a story, but it is a story telling itself to itself; there is no fixed underlying main character in the story. This is the aspect of reality that allows every human life equal access to freedom. By freedom I do not mean a mundane freedom involving physical, political, and/or economic freedom. No. That is more story. I mean freedom from the past, freedom from trauma, regret, remorse, depression, anger, negativity, in short: freedom from suffering...

Learn to Dance with Your Life

Picture two dancers conquering a partner dance on the dance floor. I know you've seen it. Maybe they were dancing swing, salsa, tango, whatever. But they were good. They were a marvel to watch. Wow.
