How amazing to be alive in another time of struggle and opportunity.
It is always thus,
No matter when.
How thankful we should be for our incredible human brain and our capacity for consciousness.
Evolution paid us forward with incredible capacity for good or ill. It is time to pay this debt as best we can.
We cannot fix the troubled world we see, but we can give and love those whom we already know, and share our awakening with them.
So show up, wake up, grow up for all sentient beings past, present, and future.
And God, thank you for another chance,
for another day, season, year, and the wonder of our beautiful family gathered here.
Another chance to be with bliss bestowing hands.
Incredible gifts, amazing grace awaits
We bow in deep gratitude and thanksgiving.
