Not being selected to join an elite squad of intergalactic guardians. Not beatification, or joining the divine however you might choose to imagine that happens. Transcendence is the pillar that’s built from those moments of joy take take us outside or ourselves, however briefly.
Those sunrises that take your breath away. That spot of crowd-surfing during the blissful summer festival. Reaching the mountaintop and feeling a tremendous sense of well-being. The speech that changed where you stand on something, or how proudly you stand for it. A stadium chant acting as a beacon for equal opportunity. Moments you remember that go beyond everyday pleasures.
We can seek transcendent moments that bolster our sense of goodwill. Toward ourselves and toward others. To rise above, and go beyond.
