What is the conversation you are called to have with life today?

Not, “What is the conversation you are called to have for tomorrow or in the future or for the rest of your life?” Just, “Today?”

Your only job is to participate in the conversation Love wants to have with you today. You’re only ever required to participate in today.

All the other days? That’s overwhelming.

Even the next segment of today can be too overwhelming.

So let’s break this down even more.

What is the conversation Life is wanting to have with you in this moment?

In this breath?

What is Love saying to you now? How do you respond? How does Love respond to your response?

The language you speak with Love and Life is one of feelings, sensations, and action. There are sometimes words, but when you get really present in the conversation of this moment, the words begin to fall away in favor for a more intimate form of conversation with Life.

Let the peace of this moment take you.

Let the anguish of this moment take you.

Let whatever is here in this moment take you.

Grab its hand and open your heart wider. Wide enough to listen to the voice of Love.

What does Love say about what is here right now?

Love might not speak in words at first. So be patient with yourself as you learn its language. Just keep listening. Your listening is the main way you participate in the conversation of today.

Shhhhh, child. Stop talking. Stop trying to figure it all out. Feel the feelings you are trying to think your way out of.

And let Love meet you there.
