The opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games are a chance for all the world to focus above the mundane and rise to the challenge that all beings are created and celebrated for the talent that is present. Look past the political to the elemental truth of the choice to be excellent and the beauty that is created by that commitment. Bravo to those who pursue their dreams and champion only their own fear. Bravo to those who show the world what is possible when the mind focuses on the possible not the profane. Bravo to the beings who can show us, teach us and tell us to be courageous…because the are!
I could have shared with you many other spectacular moments of this 2008 ceremony but it is here, in this dance between these fine specimens of Man that I see only the beauty of their focus. And, I pray that I can too experience a breath of that focus in my daily walk through the blessing of this life.
Bravo, I say again…Bravo!
