Life is not like a movie, scenes are not edited in or out. We tend to look at our life as though it is filled with an uncountable number of bits and pieces that area separate and apart from each other. Our perspective does not always take in the fact that it is all connected, we are all one, that what is above is within and what a part of you is part of me. Rumi is quoted as saying, "Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same. Every wonderful sight will vanish; every sweet word will fade, but do not be disheartened, the source they come from is eternal, growing, branching out, giving new life and new joy. Why do you weep? The source is within you and this whole world is springing up from it."
Science has now proven what the mystic, the sage, the shaman has known all along. The force found in life, the essence of the universal energies, though often unseen, is the foundation of it all! This energy flows through everyone and everything. The trees, the old man, the food you feed your body, the unborn baby, the water of the seas, the touch from your lover, the crystal you placed on your altar or the whisper of your voice. It is impossible to exist without this connection. There are those who do not have the vision to see it, those who are too closed down to feel it, those too broken to hold it yet it exists. And when we are able to find the healing, the presence, and the willingness to be with it the bond that builds becomes a strong foundation, a prominent touchstone, a brilliant beacon, and a potent medicine that carries from one to the other again and again, onward and outward.
The Universe is within us and beyond us and whether we are awake to it or not, it does not change its reality. In the Hindu texts of the Upanishads it is stated that the spirit in man and the spirit in the sun are one spirit. There is no other. So today connect to the bits and pieces, embrace the bond and become part of the flow of the universal energies. Feel my touch and I will listen to your song and we will share in the wind's dance and the bird's flight together.
