The walls of of Tel Aviv offer me constant reminders that the gift of life is short. Many of the thoughts these artists offer make me want to unwrap every breath, and drive me to make each word meaningful. But they also remind me that writing on walls is a lazy way to communicate; that taking positive action is the heartbeat of making our lives matter in ways that are beneficial and measurable.
Everyday situations faced in this country, never mind what’s reported on the news, compel me to remember that happiness is not a continuum. A fleeting moment of bliss is a point of grace. I’ve stopped confusing joy with a smiley face, and understand that it’s being free to experience and express what ‘Is’ in any moment. Sharing this journey, my life, is riding the Rainbow of Love, the path is a constant arc that carries me into the eternal unknown. Walking this narrow middle path transcends hope for it allows me to ask others to hold my hand through the inevitable moments of self-doubt, and the divine carries me through despair whenever my emotions erode my ability to speak (yes, it happens). The Logic of Love that’s been identified in the architecture of the Mereon Matrix, a ligature that connects inside and out, science and spirit, is a method that is meaningful. By connecting local and global and uniting physical and spiritual, it bonds emotional and temporal, and enjoins thinking and intuition.
How we live our lives is our message. Every day my best efforts are to make what is meaningful simple. I’m the first one to admit that there are times when I miss the mark, but far worse, are the opportunities when I don’t even come remotely close to the target. But awareness is what lets me forgive myself, apologise to others, and change.
