I have been contemplating my path recently. What else is new? I have been my entire life. But lately I've been able to cut myself some slack on perpetual "trying."

Autumn Sunrise. I am here. I love my present moment without condition and I know that I am loved without condition. I am. This is truth. The Universe is me, around me, within me, and supports me.

Love. Without condition. Without exception. Without timeframe. Without prerequisite. Without judgement. Without fear. Without limit. Without exhaustion. Without end. Without distraction.
