We Are Here

It is a strange and magical fact to be here,
walking around in a body,
to have a whole world within you and a world at your fingertips outside you.

It is an immense privilege,
and it is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here …

It is uncanny how social reality can deaden and numb us
so that the mystical wonder of our lives goes totally unnoticed.
We are here.
We are wildly and dangerously free.
