"May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence." -John O'Donohue

In Old English, to awaken meant "to spring into being." The word connotes a call to existence, to life and to the present moment.

As the sun calls the flowers to bloom, let it's warmth be a reminder that you are alive. Too easily and too often we put our selves on auto-pilot. At these times, you might find yourself just "going through the motions." However, your awakening is as simple as the the act of realizing you're on auto pilot.

Don't over think it: if you find yourself checked out, that discovery is enough to check you back in, to awaken your to your true Self and, in doing so, to awaken your greatest potential. "Awaken" yourself as often as necessary, without judgement, until the state of being awake becomes your new normal.
