We all have dreams: dreams of a better life, of fulfilling our passion and purpose, of making a difference, of living a life of meaning. Human consciousness is adapting and evolving: awakening to personal and collective dreams, and to our inherent evolutionary potential to fulfill them. How each of us navigates this awakening is the art of being human: the art of learning to live with impermanence and tending to what is truly important and lasting. It is a lifelong endeavor of self-realization, of becoming more aware of ourselves and our service to each other, and to continually express and reinvent who we are becoming as a global family.
My voice is but a single note in the symphony of humanity. In itself and without a larger context it is perhaps small and not so noticeable. But when each of us adds our voice to the song of human potential, together we can awaken to our dreams and dream ourselves awake.
This blog and the words I write are my voice, like breadcrumbs in a forest that trace my perfectly flawed journey of learning mastery in the art of being human and awakening. I know I am not alone; being alive means saying “Yes!” to life, to the full spectrum of human experience that resides entirely between the edges of fear and love.
