Look around. It isn’t hard to see we are living within extraordinary times. In fact the times are so extraordinary, it is easy to get lost in the times.
Yet the times are defined by you. More than just digesting pre-chewed media: how you witness the times changes the times. More than you feel is possible: how you act does shift human history in very real ways. The above pictures might have come from the Juno spacecraft, and yet the video was from a normal person hand stitching the pictures together into a motion picture to share with others. His actions touching, inspiring and shifting others in return.
How are you going to respond to our times?
Yes you are being tested, tasked, and pushed into life more than ever. You have been thrown into extraordinary times.
The test is this: How are you going to be part of these times?
The trap is to think you have to be great to match the times: when in truth, it’s a process of living with our ordinary hearts.
I have moments that come together in great clarity & then I turn it all around – to live in my very normal life. Normal is magical enough. In living a normal life, I can help others live and find an ordinary kind life also. If you are too busy shooting for extraordinary… you will miss the actions of living in the amazing ordinary world around us.
We need people today who are strong enough to be their ordinary selves and living to their honest kind actions.
