If you have had a thought in the past minute — or chosen to remain instead in a meditative state — you are authoring. And to author is to receive the song of the Universe, allow it to enter your breath and thought, owning it and releasing its power.

It is an ethical impulse, but whereas the oughts of human life tend to end with a can’t or a won’t or wouldn’t, authoring is wetter, bathing in a depth of awesome creative energy which can alone satisfy the thirst of existence.
