Your life’s a popup, a one of a kind invention, a wrinkle in time. And what’s great is you can screw up, win, lose or draw and, then, do it again.

When we get anchored on a single, limited point of view, we lose perspective about how great life is. By that, I mean all of your life, what’s before and what comes after.
About a year ago, I posted What happens when you die, but there’s a reverse worth thinking about.
The simple point is, a part of you fails. It falls apart, but the foundations remain, the ones we always had. Your life’s a popup, but your foundation is where you live, all the time, no dying allowed.
It’s all over ancient history, the idea of renewal, of reincarnating, and probably we knew all along. But like Henry Hill in The Music Man, we don’t know the territory. And we don’t see the forest for the trees, if you can tolerate the cliche.
We’re so focused on our physical world, we don’t see the essential universe powering it.
Nor should we.
We arrive in this place of unimaginable opportunity, fresh out of the warmth of Mom, with one intention.
And that is to experience the world in all its wonder, testing and shaping it as the physical projection of all of us and more. Where there’s consciousness, there’s creation in every second.
Your life’s a popup and a joy ride.
You make of it what you will…
Really look at it with a clear eye. Ask yourself, Who’s that overseer, that individual always watching you, taking it all in?
It’s you, and you know your life’s a popup, there for a one time spree.
Too often, we weight it down with judgment or worry, instead of learning and letting go. But anyway, the great thing is, you can’t get it wrong because there is no wrong. There’s just you and your romp through living the physical life.
You always get to do it again, flip it around, start over and do it backwards, sideways or standing still
You decide how to build and operate that popup.

The source of wisdom? What is it? I’ve wondered about it since messages first came to me, clear and easy, out of the blue, years ago. Like art, I know it when I see it, but I still don’t know what it really is. Or where it comes […]
Our walk in the Swiss Alps started uphill on a sunny summer day. More of a hike, really, it included brown cows and views that take your breath away.
The idea to do a dance performance about neutrino physics happened through serendipity. It was October 2015, and it was soon after the announcement of the Nobel Prize in physics (to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that these sub-atomic particles […]
