Occasionally, someone will ask what I mean by, "Life is rich and spicy." I was asked today, so I figured it's probably a good time to explain - particularly during the holiday season when there's a gamut of experiences ranging from scarcity and loneliness to abundance and celebration. Imagine, all of it is included in the richness and spiciness.
When I say, "life is rich and spicy” I’m talking about the experience of life. I mean I am here to be present to and experience as much of life as I can. Life feels good and tastes good, metaphorically. The rich part is that there is so much to notice and savor - abundance. The spicy part is that life is dynamic like spices - the ups, downs, happy times, sad times, cheers and tears. Like spices, we enjoy some and dislike others. Sometimes, the combination of spices that we'd rather avoid creates wonderful flavors that become our favorites.
Therefore, we may enjoy the combinations, and we notice the good times by having the bad times to which to compare. We need and want it all. Without all of it, we can't recognize any of it because all things are perceivable and able to be experienced by virtue of their comparison to something else. This is absolute.
When we reach out to connect and participate, we demonstrate that life is full of gifts and opportunities to celebrate. Each interaction is a gift of acknowledgment and an example that we are important and chosen to share. Our attention to each other is a gift. There is no shortage of that when we recognize it and allow it. Hence, life is full of hidden and perusable
pieces of Heaven. We may not recognize it as that, necessarily; however, there is Heaven on Earth. It looks and feels like the experiences we create with our gifts of attention and sharing.
Our ability to share ideas and sentiments in this post is another example. This chance to be connected and engaged is rich and spicy!
Please join me in the celebration...

Get a taste of the conversations you'll have with your metaphysical life coach. Join us in a discussion about the nature of life, including the purpose and tools we've put in place to live it fully to realize the spiciness and richness of it all. We acknowledge the metaphysical parts of us that have the most critical effect on the quality of our lives.
The Purpose of Life...
It is revealed. The secret is out about the purpose of life. There's no mystery in it except by the ego to conjure "mystery" to distract us from remembering who we are.
The most fundamental precept to our being and purpose is that we are One, organically, indeed --intentionally individuated (manifested "separately" into the physical, flesh) to be in a playing field to remember (re-member) who we are.
It's a game we elect. Love is all there is. All else is an illusion, resistence to Love/Source/God/Universal energy...
As creators, we designed the resistence in it to provide contrast needed to distinguish/identify/experience the Love that we are. Without contrast, we can't know.
To experience the greatness of Light, we need darkness. To experience joy we must have sadness, resignation, anger, anxiety, etc... the opposite in order recognize and experience the joy that is Love. We need a comparison.... relativity.
It's how conflicts are cracks through which Love flows.
