I found this video today and was just gobsmacked. Up until a few years ago, I got this. Though I am married and at the time had younger children, I got it. And as much as I was able to under the circumstances, I lived it. But I took my eye off the ball somewhere along the way and I forgot how to live a contemplative life. I became more interested in how the world perceived me and how my values and beliefs should fit into the overall scheme of things. In short, my ego inflated like a big ‘ol circus balloon.

This beautiful video is an invitation to regain balance and a call for metanoia.
