Cusp: (n) a point of change
I suppose I might come across silly if I were to claim that such moments are accompanied by tingles and chills. I am speaking of those occasions when inspiration, mercy and creativity converge and place us on the cusp of a new beginning.
It is a reason for living better.
Of course, the purpose for living is just to enjoy the planet and be saturated by the beauty and grace of our humanity.
But there are times when it seems we are touched by a more supernatural image, which gives us license to step out of ourselves and into a new frame of thinking—transcendent of our mediocrity.
I often do not know that I am mediocre until I encounter such a cusp of divine energy.
I may go along for weeks, months and even years, settling for something, until one day I am gently smacked on the side of the head and stimulated to believe that different choices can be made, and bear much more fruit.
I will go so far as to say that if I’m not in the midst of one of these supernal transitions, I often feel vacant of purpose.
I start thinking that life is only offered in shades of gray.
It is the duty of those who desire a prophetic voice for our generation to encourage us with possibilities instead of dooming us with sameness and damnation.
So I will tell you:
We are on the cusp of a great awakening.
Don’t be found among the dull and the sluggards.
