“No man (woman) is an island.” A John Donne quote I sometimes have trouble with. Being so preoccupied with understanding my inner works sometimes leads to a depreciating desire to hang out with other people. Truth be told, I’m a bit of a loner. Solitude being my friend, I’ve been finding myself more attached to the trees, birds and the bees than any personal interaction lately. A state that seems to work, for now. Possibly a refresher for what awaits ahead.
This email relationship we’ve established fulfilling my desire to connect without the small talk. Sometimes feeling so much more personal than any “real life” talks I have throughout my day. And for that, I’d like to say thank-you for listening. Thank-you for inspiring me with your stories. Thank-you for helping me continue my practice via these writings.
The thought that we can create anything of value by ourselves is the dirty secret we sometimes like to believe. Dealing with other opinions and desires can feel exhausting sometimes. Especially if they don’t “get us”. But the reality is, we’re never truly alone, with distance knowing no bounds for our connected spirits.
Today I’ll gently remind you that if you have a wish that wants to be fulfilled, go for it. But don’t try to do it yourself. Reach out to someone that may be interested in helping. They may need you as much as you need them. Don’t be afraid to tell someone the secret wish you’ve been hiding. They aren’t likely to steal it. And if they do, it wasn’t meant for you. Find another one. Infinite opportunities abound and when one door closes another opens to your true path. Try to remember, we’re all in this together. Even when we’re not together.
