Ugh. Just spent about an hour writing a beautiful post and it disappeared! so here it is as best I remember…lol
Someone told me once that we are breathing the same air as DaVinci and Buddha and even the first woman. It made me dizzy. Lots of things make me dizzy…quantum physics, roller coaster rides, the edge of the universe, etc. etc. Years later I’ve begun to sort of understand this thought. It really means that we are all connected. I am and so are you. It’s sort of like looking at Bamboo. An entire stand of Bamboo is really just one organism (another nifty dizzying thought).
If you follow this idea though, it means that I am connected not just with the earth and the air I breathe, but also I’m connected with the dolphins, the whales, the roses, and flowers, the birds, majestic trees, the moon and the stars, and with people. Not just the ones I like, but with all of them.
It’s a thread that connects you with everyone and everything on this earth. We’re all entertwined . The warp and weft of the thread is perfect because you are a part of it. You, in all your glory, with all of your faults and promise. It would not be the same, if you weren’t a part of it. It’s taken me years to understand that and internalize it. But once I know something, I find it difficult to not know it. I really do think I have it, for now. And this idea is simmering with me, below the surface. So of course it comes out in my journaling. I’m made from the same stuff as this world. How breathtaking!
So…. hello world that I was born from and into. Hello!
