The world needs…

Lush —Diverse —Breathtakingly Beautiful.

If the world exists mostly in my mind — then it’s my thinking that I must save myself from. I compare, I label, I have continuous thoughts, generally conjuring images either good or bad that are primarily based in past experiences.

What if I walked through a doorway into a new world where I saw differences only as I would, say like that of a rainforest —Lush —Diverse —Breathtakingly Beautiful.

In this place —I lost my Identity of social and economic condition. In this place — my voice was a waterfall, my skin color —a leaf. My hands limbs and my feet —roots. In this place, I see myself as Lush, and Diverse, and Breathtakingly Beautiful.

Where is that doorway? Meditation, Prayer, Yoga, Creating new experiences through curiosity and genuine interest. Compassion, Empathy, and Courage to live it —an open heart. This—is the power of the dream.
