Don't ask yourself what the world needs;
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that.
Because what the world needs
is people who have come alive.
Sometimes it seems all too easy to go through life on autopilot.
Letting the busy take you from place to place,
not giving yourself a moment to consider
whether there is any quality in your harried life,
whether this is the way you really want to live.
I come alive when I stop and focus
on the little surprises all around me,
when I let the sacred speak to me and through me.
When I connect with nature, even briefly.
When I am in a place that has a veil of holiness.
When I really listen to the sound of waves
dancing onto the land.
What makes you come alive?
