FC: Living in Passion | H. Lee Shapiro
2: I want to live my life full out, without fear or protection
3: totally present in the moment
4: I want to love with infinite passion holding back nothing
5: Unafraid of intimacy, unafraid of truth
6: Let love wash over me and through me as the mighty seas crash over the rocks on the shore
7: sending exuberant sprays of foamy waters skyward in ecstatic celebration
8: Do you want to dance with me, to throw caution to the wind?
9: To lose our false sense of self and in so doing, find our true selves
10: Let the wings of a glorious eagle carry us to heights unimagined
11: We might fall, but what an exhilarating ride we would have
12: Even the free-fall would be moments of rapture as we feel the wind rushing through our souls
13: Death is not the worst thing. Not living is!
14: When death comes, I will go unafraid
15: Joyous in knowing that I played full out, that I did not hold back
16: That I felt ... love, sadness, fear, joy ...
17: all of it!
18: That my life was a full-bodied symphony of feelings and experiences
19: Played with fervor and fire, gentleness and softness
20: The notes will resonate in the heart of spirit
21: in this moment and for all time
