04 Jul The power of WE: the good, the bad and the awesome.
I am interdependent with everything. The dance of my small self and my individual life is an empathic dance with All of Life. I experience myself as a fractal of the whole. Maybe you are like this, too? My feelings are both personal and transpersonal. If you relate to this, you are an empath. Empathy is the capacity to have feelings connected with collective consciousness, the earth and other life forms.
Being empathic means being a very human Human. It means that your human capacity to feel functions as a mirror and a measure not only of your individualized life experience, but for collectivity, as well. For me, this manifests as being really sensitive and sometimes not knowing why I feel so much, but just needing to feel it all.
Just like everyone, have good days and bad days. Just like you, I don’t always feel clear. I don’t always have the answers. I sometimes feel lost, confused, frustrated or just plain lost and lousy. My heart and body feel it all. And, I have come to know that my small self journey is a fractal of the whole of humanity. And, because of this, I need your mirroring, your healthy reflection of the process of embracing life with love. I need to grok (meaning: to empathically receive) the good, the bad and the awesome THROUGH THE LOVE OF OTHERS. I CAN NOT DO MY LIFE ALONE. I need you in order to fully know myself.
So, really, I am writing this blog to to THANK YOU.
I thank you for the way you embrace and embody the good, the bad and the AWESOME in life – every day. It’s a practice. It takes commitment. And, I know you are worthy of this thanks. After all, you wouldn’t be reading this blog if you didn’t give a sh** about love, life and the planet. So, thank you.
Here’s the reality: I can not do my life without your love. I can not hold my small self in coherence with my collectivity without your touch, your mirroring, the solace and the HOME you offer me, and the courage each of you embody on our shared path. I am a being of collective intelligence. My heart is part of the Earth’s heart, part of humanity’s soul. My little life is a reflection of the whole. The pain I feel is often larger than me… and it is the pain I continue to know as the opportunity for our deepest thriving.
Together…. WE are the healing of this pain. WE are the return and the remembrance and the dance and the desire of All of Life to know itself in a circle – a circle of wholeness that honors all. ‘
I woke this morning singing with the earth, singing her loss and our cost – the cost of all that we have forgotten in the race to have more, to transcend our animal nature, to remove ourselves from the dirt of life. Humbly, radiantly, I am embracing it all. Comm-passion: passion in communion. We HAVE IT ALL NOW. Today, I return to AWEbundance. Today, as every day, we are the one’s we have been waiting for… and that means living INTERDEPEN-DANCE wholly, in every aspect of our lives.
Thank you. I love you.
