I adore opening my blog reader and discovering the flow in all the daily posts for those I follow. More and more recently, I am finding the land of syncs exploding from within the individual lives of the people who are so generously sharing from their corners of the adventure.
Today there has been a looking at loss by one whose Papa-san has transitioned on to the next adventure, a reminding of the love affair with despair and dancing frantically with several Sufi poets in response. There has been beauty in grief and feelings of the place of forlorn. There also has been the inspiration of not just somewhere, but the concept of somewhen*!!! … a feeling I have had with a few treasured people during my life and what a wonderful word to create for the experience. *(The Chinese have a very similar word “yuanfen“, which I also adore!)
These are wonderful reminders that we are alone in this together. Those who are writing from and in seemingly separate experiences, are more and more showing our links in the weaving together of words here. It is unique story details for us all, but the sharing of the exact same feeling textures being covered.
Thank you for this.
And from just one specific snapshot today, a gift of Rumi in return over on Awake in 365:
A person must be moved with passion and yearning
for them to tell the wine from the cup.
This is the same as someone who is hungry,
who hasn’t eaten for ten days,
and another who has eaten five times a day.
Both see a loaf of bread.
The full one sees only more food,
but the hungry person sees life, itself.
To the hungry, this bread is a goblet,
and the life it brings is wine.
Such wine cannot be known
except through hunger and yearning.
Acquire this appetite so you will not only
see the appearances of form,
but will find the Beloved everywhere.
Such wonderful courage and remembering of seeing the beloved everywhere through the eyes each of you share with me.
!!!We are amplifying exponentially!!!
Profound thanks to anyone who finds themselves reading this and for allowing a place for witnessing on the journey while being home here at seeingM.
