Living by sharing.
Journeying through life, one meets and experiences life moment by moment. These moments consist of interaction with those around us, either strangers passing us by, encounter with an acquaintance, close emotional time with a friend, family or a special someone. In each situation, we interact to observe, explore and learn about ourselves.
In the past two days, I met some friends and acquaintances and some complete strangers. The social friends took great interest in my plans for the upcoming trip to Costa Rica. There was also a sense of curiosity when questions were asked about my life journey. I also heard some aspects of resignation, in the questions asked, sensing that my circumstances or situation somehow allowed me to pursue a more "spiritual" path then theirs. We all carry a sense of inner "knowing", whereby each soul realizes that their journey is for them to experience. The chatter of the analytical mind fogs over this knowing.
Over a communal setting I met complete strangers. We heard beautiful music, songs and music made through the crystal bowls. We also shared an inner awakening through the exploration of a healing ritual. Each conversation and discussion that followed was opening a window into a soul experiencing life.
As we seek peace, contentment and joy in our lives, we navigate and chart our own course, we are our own trailblazers.
