I read a sign on facebook not to long ago that said something like: There are people in this world that have no idea what is going on, and they have no idea that they have no idea. These last few weeks I had seen, even within myself, how true that statement is. My god, life can be busy. Very enjoyable, very heart filling, but very very busy. It is sooooo easy to lose yourself each and every day. Most people have no idea what that even means or feels like (to really, and I mean REALLY know yourself,) especially if that (busy life) is all you know. I so have forgotten how exhausting what we call ordinary life can be.
For as much as I enjoyed my time in Virginia and Pennsylvania, and god knows I enjoyed every moment, I was not sad about coming Home. Quite the opposite really. I was missing myself! I was missing my connection to spirit, to life, to all the things most people don’t have time to connect to or find out how deeply They exist. Work and family connections seem to dominate lives. Which, on the surface, one can say that is what life is all about, and for a very long time, I surely would have agreed too. In that degree, life is a very external event, happening outside of you, all around you… but what is really happening within and what happens if that external world suddenly ceased to be? Where does one get the food of life they have depended on?
