Today the entire world will be gazing at the sky in hopes of seeing a once in a lifetime event...a total eclipse. From what I hear it will be a sight to behold.
When speaking on the eclipse at the American Museum of Natural History, famed astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson said, "Experience this one emotionally, psychologically, physically." Dr. Tyson said that...about an eclipse.
His words encourage us to be in the moment and allow ourselves to fully engage with this once in a lifetime solar experience. I hope that everyone who reads this blog post is able to do just that.
Put on your safety shades and stand at the highest point, watching the moon spectacularly eclipse the sun. Take in the full magnitude of the sun's light in a way that you never have before. Experience the full glory of our universe "emotionally, psychologically, physically." Allow yourself to be fully present in that moment.
Now imagine that Dr. Tyson said those words about your life, "experience your life emotionally, psychologically, physically."
Imagine what your life would be like if you allowed yourself to fully experience this one...this life...emotionally, psychologically, and physically. What would your life be like if you truly lived it and not just existed in it? What would your life be like if, instead of running when challenged you fully embraced challenges?
What if, just as you will stand boldly facing the once in a lifetime event of the solar eclipse, you remember that YOU are a once in a lifetime event and live your life as such. I wonder how different your life would be?
