It reminded me of the life flowing through me. I don’t have to ask for the flow. It happens. It’s free. It comes without request.
This gives me great relief. It diminishes the needy part of me that thinks I need certain things to be okay: a certain amount of money, acceptance, things, success.
With life comes a handful of basics that I was also given, that make my life a better place to be. My body, senses, and awareness.
This reminds me of a song my mom used to play on the stereo when we were kids. It was called, “I Got Life” from the musical Hair. Here’s the lyrics.
