Will the Real Hero Please Stand Up?



The days we live in are anything but normal.  It’s in our best interest to be flexible and open and ready for what presents itself to us in any moment.  Those who attach themselves to rigidity and expectations are probably going to find themselves frustrated and resistant to all the amazing things right in front of them.


I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to miss those amazing things.  It reminds me of the sky.  Day after day and night after night we live under a canopy of amazement.  As we sleep, there are worlds cultivating “right” above our gaze.  If you have ever looked through a powerful telescope, you know the awe when you get a glimpse at the beauty and magnitude of what is really going on out there…up there.


What if each day we were to present ourselves to Spirit with openness and eagerness for the Unexpected of the coming day?  Now I know most of us really like predictability and stability.  We generally like to know what’s coming and we like to prepare for that.  I’m starting to enjoy more the unpredictability and to find joy in the “miracles” that show up right in front of me when I least expect them.


My assertion today is that there are opportunities for us to engage powerfully with LIFE all around us.  If we will but have eyes to see, we will be amazed.  If we will go through our day with awareness and awakened, we will be able to take the less travelled road to purpose and fulfillment that otherwise we would have missed.


I have included a video in today’s blog that displays this message better than my words.  I hope you will take a couple of minutes to watch this.  It’s one of the most inspiring things I’ve seen in a long time.  It’s a look into the world of an unexpected hero, and it’s a call, to us, to go through our lives much more s-l-o-w-l-y that we may SEE the opportunities to express our heroic too.


I believe heroes thrive on the unexpected—they are ready at a moment’s notice to suspend “normal” daily living to infuse their wisdom, courage and care into that which beckons them come and be their gift.
