My friends call me a firestarter. I'm not sure that's really an accurate name. I'm more like the person that soaks you in kerosene. Just call me "Zippo." It's up to you to decide when to light the match.
I do like to see people get excited about their lives.
The thing is that people are so individual. We aren't human beings having a spiritual experience, we're spiritual beings have a human experience.
Some of you readers/bloggers have been the focus of my dousing with kerosene. I'm seeing some of you lighting yourselves up, others saving the match for the right moment. I can appreciate that. Sometimes we fear lighting ourselves up where we might burn others in the process, but then remember when you burn--you're radiant. And, aren't we all attracted to the warmth of a good fire? You warm others when you're at your brightest.
How do we find our fire? Spontaneity, the five senses, no more classifying "good and bad," "right and wrong," "fair and unfair," closing your eyes against the sunlight and smelling the chlorine and suntan lotion, the scents of summer.
Being present in the moment. Life is a verb, not a noun!
Here's my life motto I live every day that keeps my fire lit:
Wherever I am, it's the coolest place to be.
Whoever I'm with, is the coolest person to be with.
Whatever I'm doing, is the coolest thing to be doing.
