Most of my musings over the past months has been about spirituality.. what it is, what it means to people, what it means to me.. how is it expressed in life? is it important? why or why not?
“We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” T. S. Eliot
It’s been a soul-searching period of my life – the most, i would say. And reflecting back on my whole life is .. what’s the word? Like the quote, like the quote. To really see the bigger picture and to feel the pull of the Universe and see how it’s been there all along, calling. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” I think it’s more that when the student is ready, we will recognize the teacher. Not really sure where this train of thought is going…
There’s a whole world out there that we don’t openly acknowledge and speak about. It’s crazy (and it makes me feel crazy) because the energetic world is very much a reality. Maybe even more than the material world? Just saying it in my mind makes me feel a little cuckoo. The ego asks me if i have any idea what i’m talking about. If i could hear myself prattle on and on about vibrations, i’d give myself something to shiver about.
At a time like this, i’m quite glad i haven’t given anyone my blog address (is that what you call it?) It allows me the space to write freely without worrying about who will be reading this, bringing forth more authenticity.
So i was talking to a placement student about religion – i saw him praying before lunch, so i figured he was religious. It’s interesting how vastly different all our opinions and views are, and yet we somehow feel justified in asserting most, if not all, of our beliefs. Myself included. It was a very nice conversation. i’m not saying it’s not. now i’m not sure why i brought it up in the first place.
this is starting to feel a little holden-caulfield-stream-of-consciousness-therapy-talk-like.
i wonder if there will be a resurgence of blogging. as i was re-reading xanga entries, it struck me how supportive it can be to have friends sharing about their day (in more detail than a food snapshot) and you can comment, etc. Essentially a deeper version of facebook. I miss that! That was nice. But that was also back when people actually had time to blog, not to mention follow other blogs and comment back. Who has that kinda time now? Ain’t got time for that!
i am rambling because i love typing. and since no one will read this, there’s no problem! Wonderful.
Ok. that’s it for now.
