We Are...

We are. We are witnesses as well as active players in this phenomenal experience we call human drama. We are creators, directors and interactive participants in the ever unfolding story of life.

We see and feel the ordinary where it meets the extraordinary, relishing in the excitement, the angst, the joy and sorrow. It is no coincidence that we mimic and idolize life on stage and big screens, immersing our consciousness into its lure of enchantment.

Life compels, enthralls, engages, enrages, impassions, amazes, astounds, addicts, afflicts, affects, conflicts, challenges, fulfills, disappoints, contradicts, usurps, undoes, elates, destroys, creates, and defines us. We are torn inside out by the depth of life’s sorrows and elated beyond the boundaries of heaven's gates by the rapturous joy life contains.

All things, good and bad, all things are encompassed in this enigma, this unfathomable experience that we are right now a part of. We are each of us instrumental to the occurrence of this moment. Our awareness is what gives this moment and every moment across the vast expanse of eternity meaning.

Our power over this is but a breath away. We are the purveyors of destiny. We, who know the simplest yet profoundest truth of all.  We are. It is by this comprehension that we reconnect with the part of ourselves that is infinite. Here as human beings we are given an opportunity to recognize our own existence and to fully interact with the wonder and woe that abounds. We are alive. We are here. We are given a gift, a divine bestowment upon our hearts. The knowledge and ability to feel the full range of humanity’s capacity. To not only see it, or hear of it, but to feel it in all of its earth shattering glory. We suffer the depths of despair and we celebrate the heights of ecstasy, because we are.
