A Prayer for Wakefulness

Do the things you always say you want to because life is too short and now is the time to find a way to explore and interact with life. As Yoda says, “do or do not”. If you want to do something find a way to make it cost-effective, achievable and important. Scrimp, save, budget but put the money where it matters. Realize you may have to prioritize and wait but work for it on a small scale every day and recognize opportunity that can seem unrelated. Hint: It’s not always glamorous or fun. Giving up on doing something important because it’s hard and not the way you think it should be reflects entitlement. Not being the person you want to be today because “you’re not there yet” and other excuses means you not being genuine now. It also means you’re setting yourself up to feel needlessly unfulfilled. Those lies are mostly to ourselves but they detract from what we could give others.

Don’t give into the mundane and the humdrum. Question what’s expected and how you pass expectation on to others; especially if your expectation is nothing more than ritualistic tradition for the sake of repeating routines you already know. Instead give the things around you your own spin. Get to know the unfamiliar. Reinterpret ideology and point out it’s flaws but then have enough maturity to fix them in yourself. Don’t just blame circumstances, society or upbringing. Create your own code and integrity. Work towards being the best person you can be. Be strong enough to be independent and interdependent. Get your own life in order. Be strong -don’t just believe you are. Remember to make something of your life, even if this is small compared to the vastness of humanity, and the universe. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr. if you are “called to be a street sweeper . . . sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry.” Follow your calling with exuberance. Be responsible for you and constructing a strong soul. Be self-aware.
