Life is not an achievement but a gift. Each instant, pure existence bursts with unfathomable energy and bliss. All that ever stands between us and this miracle is our mind, the wall we build with thought and belief. Christmas is just a reminder that every morning is grace, the Sun rapt in blue ribbon and glittering crystal. The gift is all around us: the boundless dancing in boundaries. What more do we want? If we are truly awake, this very breath is the incarnation of God on earth.
