I missed the Friday night deadline due to being in the hospital with my Dad..
I appreciate all the prayers and well wishes.. He came home yesterday afternoon. It was a long weekend for him!
I’ve been collecting my thoughts throughout the week.. as far as watching things just be… observing beings being… doing what they are designed to do..
The one I enjoyed most was a hawk..on a very windy day. He/it was the Jonathan Livingston of Hawks… He was totally enjoying the ride he was taking on the wind. It was beautiful and I was jealous. What that must feel like to ride on the wind they way he was. It was quite awesome!
Another thing I was thinking about throughout the week is our need for each other… how we need to be connected.. and over and over again I was thinking of a song from long ago of Barbra Streisand’s… I loved it then.. and listening to it now… I still love it now.. although, I have to say.. I appreciate and understand it even better now than when I was so young (back when I first loved it…!):
“…And yet letting our grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside..”
That’s what we do as adults, isn’t it?
She said at a break in the song: If only the world knew that….how much we all need each other
How true that is…
When we finally realize the importance of our connectedness…. it is a shining moment as the song says: People who need people… are the luckiest people..in the world !
and as I watched her singing.. she was not working..(talk about the law of least effort..) she was being and doing what she was designed to be and do. And it is just RIGHT.
watch till the end…and see her with her dog… the dog was also being and doing what he was designed to be and do. And it was just RIGHT. It felt right.
That is what we need to listen to.. to pay attention to.
When we can do that… it won’t be work anymore… it will just be what it was meant to be. We will feel it.. we will know.. it will just be right.
Once we turn off all the clatter and clutter. Once we sit with ourselves in silence. and listen. and BE. it will be right.
I have become an observer. I know now, better what to look for, what to listen for… I pay attention to the only barometer that speaks the truth… once we turn off all of the false barometers, we finally hear the beat of our own heart, our own song… our own truth.
We can all be like Jonathan Livingston… and be what we are meant to be.
