I am an avid Facebooker. I use the social platform to stay connected to various family/friends, to share inspiring and activist posts, and as a tool to spread information. The other day I made a very personal post about something in my experience. There were offenses taken, support given; a lot of emotion followed in the thread. I had made the post and left it for a couple hours. By the time I came back to it, the whole thing had taken on a life of it's own. That was the most impacting moment for me initially, when I realized that what I had put out there had caused it's own little corner of shared experience to form.
I was up late last night, thinking about how love is kind of this way. We make it, express it, and let it go. In a way it does take on a life of it's own. Out there in the ethers are the vibrations of every love we have taken part it. It has it's own life; the life that could have been, would have been, maybe already is being. There is an ebb and flow that we can tune into. Where we are not just acting out of our own desires, but out of the aura of what a love is. I'm sure this isn't limited to any kind of romanitic relationships, but rather our relationships with each individual person.
Sometimes we tell people things, and have no idea why. We just feel an urge; and maybe it's something they really needed to hear at this time. When this happens I feel like it is the connection between that is being tuned into - urging the one person to come forwards with seemingly unrelated information, and the other to acknowledge it if they wish.
Life provides us this beautiful dance of spirit. A chance to explore the gridwork of itself on many more levels than what are just seen with the naked eyes. There seems to be a "flow" to it all though. One with which we can tune in and out of. I feel like a lot of people (myself included) look back on some of the things they've been through and think "If I had just done X then Y would have happened." But sometimes, in the moment, even though taking certain actions down a path are absolutely dreadful - it can be seen in a larger picture how these occurances could have been useful in one's life.
We tend to look at life as a destination sometimes. "I am going to do this, this and this so that I can accomplish this one larger goal later on." While internally we set these goals, and they are very healthy, it's also important to remember that they actual *journey* lasts much longer than that sudden feeling of accomplishment. May we choose to enjoy it for what it is instead of getting so caught up in the goals. When we tune into the moment and trust in power greater than ourselves, one which helps us to imagine how to live and what actions to take, we might even make different choices toward the same goal we have. Herein lies the magic, the laughs, the love, the joy, the learning - to be able to let go of the goal and be in the moment. Here is where we are making the waves, here is where we are manifesting: This moment.
