Change is constant. Whether we are intentionally participating with it or whether we are working hard to keep it from happening....it's happening. Life is transient and all the spins we put on it are as well. The spin most humans put on it seems to be an attempt to cheat the progressive motion/the passing of it all. I think we end up being the ones who are cheated in such an attempt. Life is made up of thresholds...the passing from one territory into another. Sometimes the crossings happen simply because we have made a choice to move from an old familiar territory we have outgrown and into a newer more open space. Sometimes it's just life itself that dictates to us that a crossing of a threshold is going to happen. Either way, I'm finding in my life, the way in which we choose to cross makes a world of difference when it comes to the experience it produces.

Walking through life mindfully present and aware of the reality that you are walking on sacred ground, and the simple fact that you get the chance to actually do it, is the best way to experience this life. Having a camera hanging over your shoulder helps also....it can help you slow down in order to get a closer look at things you might otherwise miss.
