The hardest thing to get my head around spiritually is the idea that we are all one. It makes perfect sense sitting on my meditation cushion when I’m all Ommm and Zen, but out in the street…well not so much. But recently I’ve tried something, a simple little act that has been shining up the world around me and making energy flow more sweetly. When I encounter someone who is suffering, or whose energy is all jangly or spiky and who is not connecting well with what’s going on around them, instead of getting my prickly hedgehog suit on and reacting negatively, I send them love. I just open my heart and send love. It is the weirdest thing. I don’t know if it helps them. But it changes everything for me. It seems to put a blanket around the interaction and soothe it. Perhaps you are ahead of me and knew this all along, but I am just coming to understand there is so much more to the simplest energy exchanges between us than I ever imagined before.
