Are You Happening?

Are You Happening?

Francis Dunnery once asked me.

"Steven, Are you happening?"

I didn't quite know what he meant at the time.

I course I was happening.

I was alive!

But that wasn't it.

He was asking something else.

Was life happening to me?

Or was I happening to life?

Big distinction there.

Do I have a say in the matter?

In the matter of life.

My moment to moment choices.

In the constantly happening now.

How was I being in the world?

Was I being a way in which I was aligning the stars?

Was I creating my own luck?

Was I happening?

I don't know.

Thanks for that reminder, Francis.

Am I happening?

I am now.
