One Love

oneness

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.

  1. This is great. We can send hugs and blankets to what we do not understand and yet then find compassion and understanding from that very act. xo

  2. Dear Lucie, not long ago, I used to pass on my way home every day a woman with two babies sitting on the cold floor. I remember feeling angry about it – not pity, not compassion, not sadness. I knew deep inside that something wasn’t right. A few months after that scene, I caught myself doing something else; kneeling on the streets and talking to moms and their kids, feeling my heart soften. Reading your words helped me to understand. Our feelings are ours, its never about the other, or the outside, but the inside. That mom and her beautiful babies were a mirror, a reflection of something I had inside of me. As you said, it changes everything when we open our hearts. I truly believe this is a form magic that we all can do. It begins from within. xxx
