Life is a repeating cycle. The sun sets and rises. The moon wanes and waxes. Completion flows seamlessly into initiation.
I am here. It's another ending-beginning. People ask, "what is your plan, Luci?" I hear behind their words a desire to know a clear, definite answer, hopefully what I'm doing for the restofmylife. I sense it's simply to satisfy their interest and concern about my wellbeing (I have the most wonderful and caring friends and family), that they hope to discover I've finally made it to that undefined place we've all been taught we're striving for, and that now finally we can sigh together in relief.
In my contemplation of their questions I have come to realize that no such place exists, where we arrive and there’s no more work to be done, living an effortless yet fulfilling existence because we got there, we achieved the one big IT we were trying to achieve.
Here's the truth: once you make it to the IT you thought you wanted, there you discover a new IT to aspire to.
Seeing this clearly has changed my whole life! There is not some "happy place" I will arrive when my IT is achieved, there is only this precious sacred present moment, guiding me from IT to IT to IT and on and on as the wheel of life rolls.
If there is only the present moment, then that means I can create the vibe of my life one IT to the next! What do I want to be doing, feeling, experiencing, being RIGHT NOW? Making music offers a lot of opportunity to revel in the present. And right now I have an opportunity to dive into full presence and trust where it leads. I am hitting the road. So long sweet St. Augustine!
My writing partner, Sam Williams, and I are leaving town on Saturday. We will be visiting friends in Asheville, NC for a few days, and then our world OPENS WIDE! Perhaps it will feel perfect to stay there a while to perform and add to our new show there. Perhaps we will get a tip for another town to visit. Perhaps the mountain energies will raise our vibrations so high we'll drift up into oblivion and rain the new music down on you all from the clouds!
All of those options sound marvelous! Summary is - there's magic everywhere! Here we go to meet new audiences and new adventures!
May your skies be open wide and full of bright delight as you head straight into the light!
