It is a strange and magical fact to be here, 
walking around in a body, 
to have a whole world within you and a world at your fingertips outside you. 

It is an immense privilege, 
and it is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here … 

It is uncanny how social reality can deaden and numb us 
so that the mystical wonder of our lives goes totally unnoticed. 
We are here. 
We are wildly and dangerously free.
