Our lives are fluid. Change is inherent in our bodies and our circumstances.
Things come and go in the midst of our living. Stuff, things we do, the people, even aspects of our bodies arrive and depart.
To hang on to things with a tight grip makes us suffer. To flow with change, both positive and negative gives us peace.
The only thing that doesn’t change while we are alive is that we are alive.
The aliveness is in us in the womb. It’s there at birth. Life flows in us while our bodies begin to grow. Being alive is a constant.
This basic feeling of life goes unnoticed because it’s always there. It’s common. What’s simple is rarely seen.
What we notice is change. We see the contrast that comes from the proliferation of differences. The number of things moving in and our of our lives are vast and variant. That’s where our attention goes.
What’s of greatest value is unseen. The basicness of being alive.
Maybe you can sense its feeling. It’s flow. It’s vibration.
It’s like a hum within us.
This simple quality of life is essential because without it, nothing else if of any value.
With it, we experience the world and all it’s wonders, both dark and light, discomforts and delights.
