Be happy, they say, but happiness is not always the appropriate emotion.
Be productive, they say, but there is also time for frivolity.
Be well, they say, but illness comes to us all.
Be together, they say, but aloneness can also be a righteous state.
Wherever we find ourselves, in whatever state or condition, may we fully own and be present to our Be-ing. Let no one tell us we are less or incomplete, for this is never the case, not if we live into being whole. Be open to change, not driven by it. For simply Be-ing we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
