ILLUSION

Sometimes I can't work out where I am at to know what I want to say... I know sometimes poetry helps in those cases but it feels an age since I've written any... sometimes spiritual counselling helps order my thoughts, find words, put some form to what I'm feeling... other times its just easier not to say anything.

I guess I've felt a bit like that of late... 'saying nothing is easier' is definitely a theme...

And so I say nothing... literally nothing... its easier not to have the conversation than to censor myself... to hold back my truth in a conversation.

And I notice I feel isolated, alone, excluded, not belonging, lonely, heavy, low, separate and disconnected. I find its such an interesting pattern that I can be the one that steps away and then feel excluded... and have to be aware I've excluded myself... be mindful not to project that!

Reflecting I see that all the Friday night group meditations I've offered in the last month have been about unity and the web of connection and inter-being. My soul knows we inter-are, even if the way our society is structured, the current divisiveness in the world make me see only separation... make my mind forget we are all one.

And the message continues to come to me from all directions...

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” -John Muir "We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness"-Thich Nhat Hanh holding me in that wisdom of the illusion when I forget... returning me to the awareness we're hitched to everything...

We are the earth walking... we are the universe becoming conscious of itself... earth my body, water my blood, air my breath and fire my spirit...

Anything resonate?
