life that wants to live

"I am life that wants to live in the midst of other life that wants to live." -Albert Schweitzer


I am a particular flow in the greater stream of the body of life. What I feel, think, experience within, I also see around myself, in leaves, and trees, in oceans and stars. As above, so below. In knowing the wider community of life around me and the transformative cycles of growth and passing, I more clearly see and know myself, what it is to be alive, to be aware, to be a human, a mammal, a breathing being. When I allow myself to exist in this flow of life and awareness, I feel touched by being a part of something so much greater than myself. And I am made whole.
