We are not single lost souls floating out there aimlessly without goal; instead, we are like a kaleidoscope of colors, each one with its own characteristics, uniqueness and destiny. Our lives touch, shaping pieces of our world together. We are the colors of many. (G.Brown-Chasing The Perfect Moment)
Paul Coelho writes in his book, The Alchemist, “intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life, where the histories of all people are connected.” I believe this.
It always seems that when I’m busiest making my plans and clinging desperately to my current patterns and roadmaps of thinking, some detour lie up ahead waiting to secretly sabotage me. Fortunately for me, there is a power that has other designs in mind. The lessons it leaves behind precariously reaching down and not only shaking me by the shoulders, but shaking the way I look at life and others. Ouch! It seems like when I’m convinced of the stories I have told me about myself, my world and others- the wake-up call hits. You know-the one that leaves you standing there wondering- what just happened?
The lessons are hard to swallow at times and seem to stretch me to just the point of breaking- and suddenly- the grace kicks in. I’m enfolded in a moment that tells me I’m not alone. In that grace is where the chattering voices inside my head begin to dissolve and the barriers fall.
My life zips past so fast. My days are demanding and so is my critique. I’m stuck in a gridlock blocking the fleeting messages from deep within. Thank God, the veil lifts back periodically offering me an intuitive glimpse of evolutionary wisdom that is un-deniably just for me. Likeable to an arrow shooting through my heart appealing for my soul’s attention, I am transformed by one of those rare moments in life that change me forever. And there-everyone and everything is waiting for me.
“We are afraid of losing what we have, whether it’s our life or our possessions and property. But this fear evaporates when we understand that our life stories and the history of the world are written by the same hand.” Paul Coelho- The Alchemist
