I was driving to the park in the late afternoon, the sun at that perfect angle, illuminating everything in pink-orange light, casting long shadows.
As I was driving along, the sun was blinking through the winter barren trees in hypnotic repetition begging me to stare.
So I did.
Blink blink blink blink.
As I stared at the sun I instantly felt a rush of emotion charged energy fill my chest connecting me to mother Gaia. Heart glowing. Ablaze. Radiating.
Sunlight bathing the trees peeking through to touch my face. I smile. Tears.
I thought, how can any human being walking the face of this beautiful planet see what I’m seeing and not be absolutely astonished and overwhelmed with joy?
I realized the utter presence of the moment and thought how blissful it is to be fully aware of being alive and in the moment.
I thought being present really is like a present from the Universe.
