We make what we can of it-- do what we can with it-- and pass on back to what we were doing before life and consciousness interfered and put us to work. If you wait long enough, everything changes, which makes each moment precious beyond evaluating. Time alive and conscious is of highest value. We cannot fritter it away on trivial pursuits! On entertaining pastimes! As though it does not matter how we live. IT MATTERS HOW WE LIVE!!! OUR LIFE MATTERS!!! To ourselves and to all other forms of life, whether we know it and care about it, or not. It is up to us individually, personally, to know and care about it, and to live as though it matters who we are and how we live. To blow that is to blow everything. And to not blow that is also everything. This is why we have to develop our relationship with, our awareness of, ourselves, each other, emptiness, stillness, silence, balance and harmony. It all comes from, and forms around, emptiness/stillness/silence/ balance/harmony. These things are the source of all that is. Knowing what to do with it, with the time that is ours, comes from, and forms around, emptiness/stillness/silence/ balance/harmony. Our lives are meaningful and precious to ourselves and to others in direct proportion to the amount of time we spend daily with emptiness/stillness/silence/ balance/harmony. Do us all the honor of sitting down, shutting up, looking/listening/attending the emptiness/stillness/silence/ balance/harmony long enough, and often enough, to see/hear/know/realize/be who you are/ do what needs to be done-- in each situation as it arises, all your life long. This is called living from your heart. It is also called saving the world. Just by doing the right kind of nothing in the right kind of way.

The right kind of nothing—felicitous phrase!
