Try to see the things that happen to you in life, both the good and the bad things, as opportunities to practice responding with love.
When you look at your life … if you think about all the details of what happened to you, you will find that there was a time where you had the extra cup of coffee, where if you hadn’t, you wouldn’t have met Person A. Your life depends on how you react to those opportunities and challenges that the randomness presents to you. If you’re awake and paying attention, you will find that things happen. They might seem good, they might seem bad but the important thing is how you react to it. It’s all about our search for Beauty … through free will, consciousness, chaos, beauty, spirituality … and Star Trek.
“Mankind’s greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
You don’t need to know.
Life wouldn’t be this grand adventure if you knew what was coming.
Love the mystery.
This is Lana. I have folded thousands of cranes for 30+ years and have imbued them with healing energies and left them for others as prayers for peace and blessings. My expression of spreading the Aloha Spirit to anyone and everyone. For many years while commuting on the Vallejo Ferry to and from San Francisco, I folded and left cranes for people to discover and take away with them … I have left cranes at the various places I visited throughout my day. Every December, I would use specially made beautiful Japanese washi papers to fold cranes and create ornaments for my Yule tree … only to give them away to friends and family during the course of the new year. I find folding and sharing Origami cranes is a willful way to connect myself with those around me and the spirit of mystery. Gassho.
