“When a great moment knocks on the door of your life, it is often no louder than the beating of your heart, and it is very easy to miss it. ” ~ Boris Pasternak
Entered we are into the sphere of opportunity. She is that which floats and spirals in unison with paradox and reality. The mind cannot grasp the essence of the knock, but only when the ears hear its sound, and when the eyes glimmer in the light of the spoils to be gained. We forget that the heart knows this place, and sees nothing of spoils. We are born here in this sphere, it is ever changing and lucid of our existence, only we are mute to the sound until awakened by it.
Opportunities are abound in our lives. We see them only as they pass at times. Some are fortunate enough to seize them, others are blind to them, few land happily upon them by pure synchronicity. These are the workings of subtle energies, alive within and around all life. Even the seed that floats or falls far from the tree has the potential to grow into a life giving organism. We too are seeds, following a path brought on by the wind at times, riding a stream of air without direction, though landing where we always need to be even if we cannot understand it at the time.
Other times we do not float, we walk. We choose our path, we take turns, we round corners, we climb up and we fall down. But we must always remember that the path is always intertwined with the aimless breeze. Though we make decisions, decisions are made for us as well in some mystifying way, perfect in the time given, but this perfection is often unrealized in our senses. What seems horrible will seem horrible, and out of our control, but then this situation as horrid as it appears on the surface also brings new life; new beginnings and new opportunity
Seize hard on the sphere of opportunity. All situations have this spiraling siren as a companion just waiting to be heard. See the potential for what truth can be witnessed. Do this within the heart. Close the eyes and listen to the perfection of every moment unfolding in unison. As life connects us to life, so does the opportunity to live life.
Once we understand that all situations, thoughts, ideas and choices bring with them a myriad of opportunity, it is then up to us to decide where we float, or where we walk. Choose to do both, and choose to live. Then look back and see the footprints of life without regret.
