Everywhere – Jason Mraz “Live”

If I wasn’t a ghost, I couldn’t walk into you
If I wasn’t the snow, how could I fall for you?
If I wasn’t a songbird, how could I call to you?
If I wasn’t a fly on the wall I wouldn’t know all about you

I’m everything in everywhere
Can you see me in your own reflection?
I’m deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe in
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I’m everywhere, I’m reaching out in every direction
I believe I’m in the water too cause you act just like you need me
Mm, I’m everywhere

If I wasn’t the fire, how could you stoke me up inside?
If I wasn’t a party, how could you be the life for me?
If I wasn’t a camera, how could you be so photogenic, yeah I said it
If I wasn’t the hands on the clock, how could you know that the time was right, tonight?

I’m everything in everywhere
Can you see me in your own reflection?
I’m deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe in
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I’m everywhere, I’m reaching out in every direction
I believe I’m in the water too cause you act just like you need me

I got an eye like a spy on a satellite checking you out
I’m like a fly with my infinite eyes
I can see with all my senses and I’m coming to get you
I’m invisible, expendable, and I’m your present

I’m everywhere, can you see me in your own reflection?
I’m deep within the molecules of the air that you breathe in
And all the subatomic supersonic spaces in between
I’m everywhere, I’m reaching out in every direction
I believe I’m in the water too cause you act just like you need me
I’m everywhere, I’m everywhere
I’m everywhere, I’m everywhere

Is It Time To Wake Up?

What do you think would happen if you just stopped and listened to the music of life right now without your personal filter?

We write books, blogs, plays and movies, build enormous monuments and buildings, ride bikes, run races, swim laps, paint houses, mow lawns, etc etc etc. Why do we do these things? One might theorize that we do these things to prove to our egoic mind that we are alive. To prove to ourselves, to God, to the world that we exist. We are here. We matter. We are alive.

God / Source / Universe began singing this song a long time ago and that beautiful melody continues on right this very moment. Can you hear it? Maybe if we all weren’t running around trying to make sure we get to put in our 2 cents on how that melody should sound we could really enjoy the performance.

We were all graced with free will do what we want. I have faith that is part of the composition. But what would happen if we just stop trying to control everything through rituals and desires and listen to the music going on all around us and inside us every moment of the day?

What if we woke up to this amazing dream we call life and gave it unconditional love? How would your life change? How would the world change?

I have no idea but can you imagine the possibilities?

 

Screws Loose And Coming Unhinged

Funny thing happened yesterday as I went to close the front door to our house. As I came home from grabbing some food, the screws in the door hinges started dropping from the frame and suddenly the entire door came away from the wall. Turns out the kind folks who installed the door put in screws that were too short so each time we open and closed that door the screws were stripping the holes and working their way out. Pretty funny.

At that moment it wasn’t funny to me though. I had a laundry list of reasons this was pissing me off. Limited time. Limited resources. I let myself get angry and frustrated. In my mind, the Universe / God / Source was testing my patience and I was choosing to fail that test. How do moments like this happen?

The triggers are probably very person and “problem” specific but the big picture issue that changes the frame of mind is moving from circular time to linear time. Present moment living to past or future moment living. I can look back at this moment clearly right now and imagine all the little thoughts of insecurity that flashed through my mind.

“How I will get this fixed before company gets here?” “What if the dog gets out?” “How much is this going to cost?” “Why don’t I know how to repair my home?” “Why is this happening to me?”

All of these thoughts are fears created by the egoic mind that sucked me right out of the present moment. Not one of them is happening or matter in the least.

This ever happen to you? You get a flat tire. You trip and fall on the sidewalk. Your pencil lead breaks. Your front door comes off it’s hinges. LOL. Doesn’t matter what it is. How you react to RIGHT NOW is all that matters if how you feel really matters to you. The past is over so “why me” is a sorry excuse for running from the present. The future never comes because that perceived moment is always presented as the “present” so really what does that leave you? It leaves you right here, right now, living in the moment!

My takeaway from this little moment among one endless moment is life is wonderful and full of beautiful lessons. I mean seriously, how incredibly poetic is the metaphor of a DOORWAY coming UNHINGED because of a LOOSE SCREW? 🙂

Tighten your screws, check those hinges, make your way through that doorway and keep living in the moment if you care about how you feel. I love this life. Thank you Kat.
