When the sun rises, I go to work.
When the sun goes down, I take my rest.
I dig the well from which I drink.
I farm the soil which yields my food.
I share creation. Kings can do no more. – Chinese Proverb
the eternal now
When we inhabit the eternal moment we can be kings of our domain. We can recognize that very wealthy or powerful people are really no different. They live, work and sleep in many similar ways. We are as important as anyone else so let’s not idealize anyone to our own detriment, let’s discover the value that we bring to the Universe!
We all occupy the same space and time on this planet. Our role is two-fold in my opinion:
- Discover self: through enquiry and patience
- Discover others: through love and service
In the thick of such discovery is our relationship to self and to others. And that’s exactly where life is lived, discovered and shared. Kings are born from such trials, you and I!
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM King!
