Some believe that things happen for a reason, others believe that randomness is all that exists. Some believe that existence is the only reality, and nothing exists beyond existence. Well, thank that lucky randomness that brought the right chemicals together to create all of this amazing stuff around us… that exists… for whatever reason.
Recent events in my life have brought me back to my roots. This is what I wish to express here. For many of us know all too well that once we veer too far away from our true center, we get lost, we get confused and we get away from ourselves. It’s up to us to find ourselves when we become lost. And that is me, having been lost for a moment I’m glad to be back here again; here next to my muse in a sphere of gratitude.
I am thankful for everything that I see. And..I do see random events happening all around me. But are they random? I don’t believe it to be so. Things are in unison even though we may not notice it. Even as we look out our window, all that we see is affecting us at that very moment; moving in and away, shaping our thought and affecting our lives, leaving footprints for us to follow.
One day recently.. I look up from my own personal thought and see cars stopping and going as I stand and pump gas, getting ready for my long commute to the crescent city. I watch and listen. Then I think, what in the hell are all of these people doing? Where are they all going? What could they be thinking about? Are any of them looking at me, pondering the same things? Then I wonder.. Are any of these people significant in any way to me? Then I realize in that very moment, almost simultaneously while asking the question, that they are all significant. These people, these neighbors that I know nothing of, affect my thought, my emotion and my heart. They are in my sphere, they gave birth to my questions and they remain entangled in my own experience. They draw forth these words from my mind, and now you read them, and you think about them, and your experience is affected. This is the cycle, my sphere becomes yours, and so on.
These subtle connections remain a constant between all things. Though we never acknowledge this connective principal, it exists whether we see it or not. It interlocks all life, and perpetuates the divine cycle that continues beyond time.
As these connections persist in life, they also throw us curves. Curves come in the form of disguised events. We may often be confused about these events or situations arising without warning. These may make things difficult to deal with, or easier if we’re lucky, and these are often not in our control. It is how we view them that we can control our experience, and guide ourselves along the path. It is our perception that unlocks the beauty behind every situation, whether perceived as good or bad.
Find the true path through the connective sphere. Lift the eyes higher than the self, and draw the experience of living into the light. Once we see and truly understand that all thought, intention, action and emotion affect everything we see, touch and experience.. then, perhaps we’ll have finally seen our own true reflection.
We are all locked in an infinite entanglement with all that exists, but… we are not tangled. Embrace this truth, and you will know your sphere.
