“Whatever is available to be experienced, right now, is the medicine you’ve been seeking all along. All you had to do is agree to experience it, completely. The pureness of simply experiencing the world, as it takes shape around you. Experiencing ourselves in a world that is perennially sipping from the joy of its own experience. To know that experience, pure & unfiltered & streaming through the portals that are our bodies, is truly the greatest gift on earth. & that amazingly, unbelievably, this is available at any moment.

Experiences wish to enter us. To fill out every corner of our cells ~ like fresh fallen rainwater drunk from root tip to bloom. We spend so much of our lives striving to escape a certain experience, or to attain another. But what happens when we decide to simply dissolve into what is. What happens when we experience it completely? What happens when “good” & “bad” drop away into the presence of what is aching to be felt, seen & embodied? Wherever you are, the experience of that ‘thereness’ is wanting to come in & transform you.
Whatever is available to be experienced, right now, is the medicine you’ve been seeking all along. All you had to do is agree to experience it, completely. Heartbreaking, heart opening. Blossom heavy, as light as pollen. There is only experience. Lace colored, dawn touched, sweet as strawberries, high as sunflowers, wide as sweetgrass in the wind. There is only experience. In a world full of roses be a sunflower. The lines of your lover’s hand, the way the peas wind themselves around their trellis, rainbows in the mist of the hose, a swallow diving from the eaves of your home. There is only experience. An alley full of roses. Each one different, in scent & petal & life well-lived.
Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. All claimed that they were the best. The most important. The most useful. And the most beautiful. The favorite. Green said:”Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority.” Blue interrupted:”You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing.”
Yellow chuckled:”You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun.” Orange started next to blow her trumpet:”I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. In a world full of roses be a sunflower. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and papayas. I don’t hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you.”
