The nature of being what is

My imagination runs wild when I contemplate what is. How did it get that way? How does it stay that way? What is it? The IT, I am referring to is the now in me. Who am I? How did I get here and what am I doing here?

I am fascinated not always knowing the answers because a single human organism is so incredibly complex and when I add the spiritual nature to the physical nature IT boggles my mind.

Another fascination is how I refer to myself; I’m a guy, a male form, a human, and I am a life form. I am life. How did I get here? I’m not talking about the biological birds and bees question, I’m talking about the nature of life itself.

As I began to ask more and more of these questions I realized an answer popping into my head. An acronym came to mind and it stuck with me. That acronym is L.A.W. or Life At Work. Life At Work was synonymous with the universal laws that take a substance, connect it with energy to produce matter and form. I went freaking nuts with joy just sitting in my chair experiencing the exhilaration of being a part of this cosmic marriage.

I’m sitting here saying to myself I can’t believe this is happening to me! I am experiencing myself in a poetic convergence of thought, history, light, spirit, and all of this feels so amazingly supernatural, but it happens every moment of every day. Why haven’t I experienced this before? Or, maybe I have and I wasn’t conscious of it?

Suddenly, I was saddened as quickly as I experienced the euphoria when I realized I had to vacuum the floor. Seriously, I didn’t want the vision and feeling of glee to end. How can something so sublime end that abruptly? This is where my recent training comes into play. The why of the incident didn’t matter. All I had to do was notice it, enjoy it, and then let it go. This too seemed to be a part of the L.A.W. of Life At Work. — Freaking amazing in its simplicity and fecund with its depth and timing.

Here I go again…I AM…Life At Work…I/we cannot be anything but! Hold on! Hold on! Hold on!
