We Start In The Quiet
I dream of a place of quiet where the soul can rest and delight in the endless life that abounds. Where we bring peace to each other's soul. Where we do everything we can to minimize our touch not to disturb the lives of those others who call this home. Where quiet is the mainstay. Because that has been the lesson all along.
"I empathize with both sides of this issue. I believe disconnecting from the Internet and immersing oneself in nature is good for the mind and the soul. But on the other hand, no one is forcing you to connect to WiFi and it could be useful in the event of an emergency..." Richard Bernabe
There is a discussion to be had here.
Because once we realize that everything is energy and everything is impinging upon our awareness for attention and if we are about finding and feeling that delicate touch that is nature, of those lives that are not us, we also have to realize that we are naturally attuned to those energies that look like us.
The power of non-existence is in the clearing.
In the finding of the quiet.
We are given a new gift.
The gift of being able to see/hear what is here.
So the true power of non-existence is finally being able to hear.
To hear what is really here.
This is where we have the opportunity for a new beginning.
Because now we know the joy and the excitement of seeing.
When we are wrong, we delight in that possibility.
When we see something new, we don't feel like we have to defend what we know.
When we hear something new, we don't feel if it is different than what we thought before, we don't feel like what we know is tied to our value of who we are.
Instead like a young child we delight in every new thing.
Maybe especially so when it shows us that we got it wrong before.
There is so much joy and delight in the learning, in the seeing, what we didn't have before. That we almost ready to jump up and down in joy each time it happens. Like someone just gave us the best present ever.
When you have reached here.. that is when you know you are ready for what comes next.
