The other afternoon there was a stunning sunset taking place. I reached for my camera and did my best to capture the God moment before it disappeared. I became frustrated trying to snap pictures of the beauty in between all the houses around me. I felt uncertain that I captured anything I would be pleased with or would do justice to the real thing. I wished I had noticed the sunset happening earlier so I could have driven to a better location with an unimpeded view. I was so doubtful, I simply put my camera away and didn’t even care to look at the pictures at that moment. Subsequently, I forgot I had even taken them.

Once you wake up, can you wake up any more?
I have come to realize that we can continue to wake up to life. There is so much to awaken to and become aware of beyond what we already know—not only within ourselves but also outside of ourselves.
Awakening more challenges the status quo and what has become comfortable to us in our current state of awareness. It propels us to learn new things and adjust to new surroundings. It is not for those who prefer to remain comfortable and undisturbed.
