There are a hundred billion stars out there but we have found ourselves together in this galaxy and as we walk this world together in this time we find our being here and now hard to define There are a hundred billion stars out there tonight We are the lucky ones who landed here just right and all the white noise and back scatter that you ear is just the universe unfolding in your ear. We are the lucky ones we walk in light We walk alone if we ever lose the site and when we stop and remember how to feel we may begin to know the breath of what is real There are a trillion atoms in each flake of skin that hold the being and the soul that lies with in and if we treat this temple with such care and grace It will provide us with a hand and heart and face So listen for the ones who need a loving hand Protect the mother and protect the sacred land we are sustained within the systems of the earth and every being that has life has also worth We are the Lucky ones so give away our hands an heart as we begin each day for all we have beyond compassion is our soul and we are lucky if this marriage makes us whole. We humans walk and fight and take what we can take it this brief light of consciousness this life we make and all the pettiness will drown us if we fail to give our gratitude for each breath we inhale. So sing your praises to the sacred one who holds a streetlight that is brighter that the sun walk with mindfulness deliverance and sight until the stars reclaim you back in to their light We are the lucky ones so give away and lift the others that you meet along the way and as the days and nights roll over your sweet time just know this gift that you are given is divine Just know this gift that you are given is divine.
