We are all Unique

Once, we were unwilling to be born. We were reluctant to enter. And join the pack.

Yet, we were all attracted to something on Earth. A voice called to us,

“Never look back!”.

We had plans. We were all entrusted with gifts to bear.

Each of us had responsibilities. And flare!

Then, we are born,

and we find that no one is special.

And yet, everyone is extraordinary. This is how it is. For everybody.

We are all born onto family stories.

Based on towns. Nations. Planets. It is universal.

There is a constant nudging.

An invitation to allow ourselves to be just who we are. Bare. Full of secrets.

We remember that we can always start again, without judging.

Wherever we are. Like mighty fledgling eaglets.

How do we experience to be… ourselves?

We remember we are exceptional beings.

Each of us. Unique. In this one-of-a-kind adventure. In this quotidian world.

We remember to salute each day with wonder.

We glorify the present moment.

Joyful, furious, confused.

Yet, we are backed up by historical,

enigmatic energies

in this mystifying existence.
