We live in a culture that doesn’t give much weight to the realm of spirit, if it can’t be touched, measured and weighed up by science, then it isn’t considered real. I don’t know about you, but I find that to be an incredibly limited approach to an amazing world filled with incomprehensible wonder for those who have eyes to see. Rather than dismissing the unknown because we don’t understand it, wouldn’t it be better to acknowledge the miraculous when it occurs and say, wow, here’s something wondrous that I don’t yet have the tools or the knowledge to comprehend.
I do get a bit frustrated when I consider how many people do actually live their lives, we are encouraged to skate along the surface of the pond, never wondering about the depths sparkling just below. Sink even just a little deeper into that space, and there are all kinds of treasures waiting, if enough of us began to do this the television stations would go out of business. I haven’t watched tv for about 13 years because my inner world is so much more fascinating, and let’s face it, somewhat more relevant to me and to my life. I go through phases of watching tv shows on dvd, but the last one ended as I was going through all those wonderful shifts, all of a sudden I completely lost interest in Buffy and her valiant crew of vampire slayers!
Now I am the heroine in my own story and the pay off is supreme happiness, moving into the shadow at times, but always coming back into the light, and each time I go through that process I become more expanded. Please please, don’t settle for a life half lived, where you end up may be quite different from what you imagine now, but you will be sooooo much happier for following your heart!
To Life in all it’s fullness and wonder, l’chaim!
