your stage … your time

“Look.  This is your world!   You can’t not look.
There is no other world.  This is your world; it is
your feast.  You inherited this; you inherited those eyeballs;
you inherited this world of color.
Look at the greatness of the whole thing.  Look!
Don’t hesitate – look!  Open your eyes, don’t
blink, and look, look – look further.”
Chogyam Trungpa  “Shambhala: The sacred path of the warrior”


“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.”  

From William Shakespeare’s As You Like It


An inherited world and a stage on which you are an actor and you have a part to play.  What part are you playing?   Is the dream big enough?  Is the dream worthy?
