Everyday is Your Birthday

Each newborn enters an assembly of unique circumstances that serve a benign purpose.

The pain in your life that feels like a weight too large to carry is your defining feature; not in its tragic victimization but in the merciful passion it inspires which keeps one moving forward despite grief and loss.

Your greatest rage and sorrow inform you of your deepest longings as a creative being, and it is this burning desire which transforms our victimhood to inspired resilience in the process of purification.

Purification is not the cleansing of an inherently sinful being. It is the cleansing of wounds enacted by ignorance of our inherent divinity.

Moving through pain and sickness to joyful almighty beauty requires that we recognize our essential nature as something beyond our wounds that is the childlike innocence before victimhood, when we suffered the illusion of disempowerment. This illusion gifts you with an inimitable imprint of hell that becomes one’s individual mission to avenge.

It is through your most intimate contact with the painful essence of your being that you will find the freedom of relief. This does not require the self-deprivation of ascetic practices, but only that you sit with
your most personalized vulnerability of the child within that first felt disenfranchised and the compounding of every excruciating tension since. It is only through bathing that person in accepting presence that one can progress.

It is common to see duality in existence as the merciless rhythms of time and space in nature and the merciful timelessness beyond. This creates a view of the human experience as essentially victimhood and most of us grow calloused and internally collapsed.

To recognize the power of the human experience, it is essential that we embrace the nature of our birth as a divine occurrence and our vulnerability as our most privileged opportunity to ignite the fire of the heart.

Do not be afraid of the depths of feeling within you. It is the hollowest space of each of us that enlightens the most resounding music.
