So after a 2 month break from blogging and having finally laid the bones of my website down, I am ready to blog and spend much more of my time communing over here than on the ever-calling-to-me Facebook.
I actually have a back log of posts, that at moments of inspiration, I quickly tapped out into my note’s section on my mac.
Today’s post, to kick off my blog/website revival seems fitting for what is transpiring on the planet at the moment. Posts such as this one rush into my brain space involuntarily, usually at the fertile phase in my cycle. It is a phenomenon that I have observed for the past 3 years now. Our creativity naturally comes in cycles, often for women…linked in with our menstrual and moon cycle. If we can see it happening, feel it happening and then allow whatever needs to come forth, out…gifts from the universe are given to us.
Here’s one that surprised me. It shouldn’t, because my own life interactions with others often get me thoughtful and wondering, as do stories that my patients tell me in my day clinics when I am treating them. I hear, see and feel their suffering and search for understanding, healing and insight. When they leave my rooms, I continue to think about them, to find deeper meaning to their suffering, to help find answers…or perhaps just know where to file it away in the life of mystery filing cabinet. When I let go of these thoughts, at some point later when my thoughts drift…divine inspiration hits and my thoughts form.
Here is one such thought. It may or may or not resonate with you. If it does, feel free to share it and comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Written a few months back…
I think that Most of the worlds problems could be avoided if we chose to first see, then acknowledge and then respond accordingly when we are either choosing to be ‘zippered’ across the juncture where I end and you begin, or unzipper that connection and view another as a separate or non-separate being from me. If the universal law of ‘we are all one…we are all connected’ is true, then we need to permit our ego minds to disbelieve for a moment what our eyes only let us see…Me standing here and you over there. If after an argument with someone over the phone, each person is ‘upset’ but alone with their feelings. What is connecting them? They both, energetically are feeling the unzippered effect in play. Cognitively, they are profusely trying to separate and demarcate the lines of where ‘me who is right’ and ‘she/he who is wrong’ is drawn. These overwhelming and uncomfortable feelings catapult our ego’s into overdrive to ‘protect’ us from ever feeling this way again…flight, fight, to take us away from feeling yuck. But emotionally, even if one of you is sad and the other is feeling self righteously angry, you are still connected to each other. So if say, it was a mega argument that found each party going their separate ways, never to talk again. Silence, moving on, living their own lives. They/you are still connected by the emotion. The connection may be half unzippered but you still carry the other person somewhere deep inside of you. Why is it that they are still there?
Because we are all connected. There is no separation. A flicker of a reflection of that which we reject in ourselves, which we saw in the other, makes us unzipper from each other. All people are gifts in our lives. Those we remain zippered closely to are mirroring to us the qualities we like about ourselves and that which we wish to project out into the world and live with. Those that we are unzippered from have reflected our shadow sides in some way or tapped into deep fears or core beliefs about ourselves. Those parts of ourselves that we are not yet ready to see, let alone embrace. But those sides of ourselves are still in us. It is easier to reject another whole entity and downplay and allow our ego’s to convince us that we are separate from them, than to acknowledge that ‘what I see in you, is also in me’. Either way, like it or not, we are still them and they are still you. You are still connected. You are part of the universe, as are they. You can only be one, even if on a visually projected plane, you have been split into two…or many. Wouldn’t it be easier, if we could suspend our absolute belief in our ego driven thoughts long enough to truly ‘see’ what gift the unzippered from self person has proffered up for you to learn and become more whole by?
What an amazingly evolved person/people we could become. Fighting throughout the world would disappear. We would be an evolved people/race, living harmoniously and in peace. It would be amazing wouldn’t it? If we could all as individuals, rise temporarily above our ego’s, for a split second. Work on ourselves. Forgive others for perceived trespasses. We would be on the road to recovery and a rich, rich life.
It’s a long journey. But we each should start from where we are. Shouldn’t we?
