I think you are "in the zone" (as they say), Blogger Brian. Your level of comfort and satisfaction with life is evident. Your quote from Charlotte Joko Beck summarizes the stark recognition that is intrinsic to existence: inevitability, the most uncanny and inescapable realization that consciousness is capable of. Trivialized, just for fun, in the pithy statement "it is what it is". And it certainly is.
I often wonder what life would be like if everyone was aware of the inevitability of mere existence. Oh wait, I know. It would be exactly as it is right now, because it is not possible for it to be any other way.
