Sunshine on a Rainy Day

I am addicted to quotes. As far as addiction goes, I suppose this is a great choice. I love to seek the great ones out. The ones that inspire me. The greatest ones are shared at the end of my yoga classes. The best ones have yoga classes built around their ideas. My all-time favorite one to date is one that internalizes with me every time I read or share it. It is from Mark Nepo's Book of Awakening from the passage "Precious Human Birth" (just beautiful). Thank you Mr. Nepo.
Here it is my dear ones...

That I can rise from some depth of awareness to express this to you and that you can receive me in this instant is part of our precious human birth. You could have been an ant. I could have been an anteater. You could have been rain. I could have been a lick of salt. But we were blessed- in this time, in this place- to be human beings, alive in rare ways we often take for granted.
All of this to say, this precious human birth is unrepeatable. So what will you do today knowing that you are one of the rarest forms of life to walk the Earth? How will you carry yourself? What will you do with your hands? What will you ask of and of whom?
Tomorrow you could die and become an ant and someone will be setting traps for you. But today you are precious and rare and awake. It ushers us into grateful living. It makes hesitation useless. Grateful and awake, ask what you need to know now. Say what you feel now. Love what you love now.

A little sunshine for you on this rainy day.
So much love and joy to you for reading... Katie
