The Imperfect Meditation

"Some people say they haven't yet found themselves. But the self is not something one finds; it's something one creates." Thomas Szasz

If you are even slightly observant, you will notice that nothing is quite right...
  • The earth isn't a perfect globe. It bulges in the middle.
  • The moon is heavier on one side. That's why the same side faces earth all the time.
  • The earth's path around the sun is not a perfect circle. It's actually a bit irregular.
  • The paths of the planets do not line up on an even plane.
  • Our planet is wobbling through space.
The universe is not finished; it appears the Creator is still creating.

Like the universe, we too are a work in progress. And that means new and wondrous opportunities constantly surround us.

In this moment, consider yourself as a piece of clay, being molded and sculpted by an incredible artist. And that artist is you. You are continually redesigning your life, even if it seems that very little changes. So, how will you design your life from this moment forward? What will you create? How will you be? You have a universe of whacky and wonderful choices. Consider the possibilities. The fact that you still live in this world means you are not done yet. 

Decide now to hold your mind and heart open to all that is available to you and to all that you can offer. Remember: When you move, you risk. But to not move is to die. Be alive. Reach out. The universe is always wobbling in your direction. 

And so it is…Amen.

"When you recognize that reality is a selective act of attention and interpretation--a selective act of perception--you become capable of consciously co-creating your life." Deepak Chopra (From the Forward, The Ten Commitments by David Simon)


  1. You mean they, some or all, aren't disrespectful to you brother? *wink*

    "The universe is always wobbling in your direction." So let it be spoken, so let it be done, and so indeed it is.... Rev. Rosie
