Your highest and best use is…

…to be a bridge.

You can be this through your eyes…Tell us what you see.

You can be this with your hands…Show us where the beauty is.

And you can be this by your words…Paint us a new world.

Help us get to the other side.

The side of possibility.

The side of wonder.

This side of Love.

There’s about 7.5 billion of us.

What if we all knew we were meant to be a bridge?

The Song

There’s a song being written with billions and billions of instruments.

It’s the song of us. 

Together.

As one.

And one of the instruments in this song is you.

To contribute a verse in this grand symphony of humanity is of the highest vocation. 

Indeed, this unfolding symphony just so happens to exist right now in the cosmos and is taking us to a place that is better.

Better than we can imagine.

Right now.

Here.

In this place.

Today.
