“The real task is to shift our priorities…”

The world outside is us. There’s something in our being that is as big as the entire cosmos and as ancient as the 14.7 billion year old universe. And what applied to my poor cousin is a hop, skip and a jump away from so many of our lives (perhaps succumbing to the seemingly trivial temptations of excessive cake or compulsive shopping). The real task is to shift our priorities, possibly intentionally slow down a bit, upgrade our awareness and enhance our effectiveness at meeting the smallest and largest challenges in all of our lives without needing the triggers of loss, a global pandemic or the threat of extinction. It's making the most of our precious time here and, with love improving the experience for everyone around us. Photo Credit: Machete Bang Bang 47 AWARENOW / THE OUTSIDE EDITION
