Here’s the Deal

What do you call it?

The Universe? The Mother? God? Goodness, Spirit? Truth? Allah, HaShem? The Light?

Whatever the name you choose, I’ve been having chats with it. It’s been a process that’s been unfolding for a couple of decades and has intensified over the last year, with particular focus in the last fortnight.  That’s when I was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Cancer – a word I would never have dreamed to associate with myself.  I’m on chemo-therapy.  It’s so crazy. It’s crazy, crazy, crazy.

Throughout my spiritual journey, I’ve come to accept that I am a soul who is bigger and more vast than this one human life.  I am the creator of this human life – the painter, the artist.  Nothing can diminish my true, eternal existence.  Yet, I LOVE this human life that I have made.  I love everything about it. That’s why I want to continue living it until my children are grandparents.

So, God, I CHOOSE THIS LIFE.  I like to think that I can continue here if I choose this life consciously with trust, openness, love, acceptance and upmost respect. I CHOOSE THIS LIFE. I want it. I want to live.
