Once you’ve discovered the light within, which has always been there, another door opens for you to discover that this light you bear is also found within everyone else too.
And the same can be said for everything and everyone.
Think of a time when you discovered another soul that had a passion for something that you had as well. Immediately a “me to” bridge connected you to them. And what about the time(s) you randomly crossed paths with someone that also had a similar struggle or synonymous pain? Those “me too” moments somehow also created a bridge to a place that was safe and not so lonely.
How fascinating! Both the pain and the pleasure can connect us to the ones we weren’t connected with.
Something deep inside of me tells me that union is the point to all of this.
All of this: the work, the joy, the pain, and the pleasure. It seems that history is pointing in the direction of a wonderful reunion with all things.
So find what you have experienced to be true: the songs, the suffering, the flavors, the struggles, and the joy…and claim them.
And with open hands and hearts, live out your days and walk with the hope of divine happenstance. Because someone soon will cross this path of yours and you just might need each other. This is called solidarity. This is called vulnerability. This is what it means to be human.
And then there will be a re-union of some sort…
…and I can’t think of a better plot, theme, or punchline for the happenings of our universe.
