The Jewel of Life

March 23rd, 2012

We hold in our hands a precious jewel that is life. And yet, for some reason, we decide to add to it. We embellish, we decorate, we judge. Eventually we end up adding so much stuff to it we feel we have to cover up the mess we have made, adding even more layers. Sadly we have forgotten the jewel lying underneath it all, a jewel so fantastic that all it requires is a place to Be.

Guess what? We have the perfect place! Just look at this planet, it’s so beautiful it defies definition.

Normally I stick to first-person here, as I know that this is all coming from my perspective. However I want to emphasize our group tendencies, our social expectations and organizations that seem to encourage all of this excess (and I don’t just mean luxury-type-excess, I mean unnecessary-ness). Western culture in particular discourages simply Being, instead teaching us to change and improve even when we are content and at peace as we are.

I for one intend to simply tune in to Pacha Mama (I know, it’s actually one word, but I like exaggerating the Mama part a bit) and revel in her effusions. I love her enthusiasm and how she provides every need for the expression of life – animal, mineral, vegetable, All of Us! The earth is absolutely a dynamic place all about growth and creation; it’s not about improving so much as the full expression of self, whatever that self may be.

The jewel is life and it is precious. Our best bet is to appreciate it, to display it in its own pure beauty. Nothing needs to be added to it, it’s all right here in front of us. Not only is this simple, it’s perfection as given to us by the Universe.
