intersections.

#MondayMorningMindfulness

The coffee I just tasted touched a thousand hands before it touched my lips. And, for that, I have upmost respect. 

The path these beans took to reach my cup intersected with the path I have been traveling upon to get to this moment. Herein lies the magic. Here - in - this moment - we meet.  

This is not exclusive to coffee, of course. You and I intersected today, too. We crossed paths through our metal devices that somehow untangled and connected our signals through a digital web of human creation. And, here we both are. Communicating somehow. Hello. Can you hear me? 

Without you I don’t exist.

More. Faster. Better. It’s all a ruse. Stop the worry. 

The beauty is right here, right now. Intersecting in all sorts of seemingly small - yet profound, ways.  

“Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” - Lao Tzu
