Can you see it? The world is changing. Something is shifting. Regardless of your beliefs, spiritual consciousness or religion, I guess you have noticed it as well.
What I see is people moving back into their hearts. Living from a heart is becoming more and more natural and authentic. Thanks God! The times of living under full control of our minds is over.
Feeling is great. Emotions are not only accepted but also even welcome. Can you imagine that ten years ago? Imagine people openly sharing their feelings and emotions and embracing them fully, twenty or even ten years ago. It would have been considered as showing a weakness at those times. And that was not acceptable.
And hey, look at today. How moving and inspirational it is to be authentic, natural and present in emotions as they arise in our hearts. Such emotions have an amazing power. They communicate the truth; without words.
I have come across this video some years ago and again today. Emmanuel Kelly sings from his heart, shares his story by singing and touching everyone’s heart. He creates a moment of unity, connection and oneness. All hearts are connected as he sings.
John Lennon couldn’t have imagined a better ambassador of his message than Emmanuel. When he sings “Imagine all the people living for today” with his courageous angelic mum and brother supporting him full heartedly from behind the stage, I know he communicates his own message. And it touches me deeply.
Living in a present moment, living for today. I am still learning. Thanks Emmanuel for reminding me.
Dear lover, you came into my life as a wild river. You broke through the closed doors of my heart into my life.
Your waters felt dangerous to me; I sensed my own deep-seated fears of you but I stepped in anyway. It felt so surprisingly tempting. Yes, I had to face my fears. So I stepped in. I stayed for a while, swimming along, open to all my long suppressed feelings; and then I left you. I had to.
You came as a river and went through my space unexpectedly. You run in and I let my body bathing in your waters. I enjoyed it first, it felt so fresh and nurturing and I liked feeling you holding my body. I enjoyed diving into the depth of you, curious, excited, full of joy. And yet, deep inside I knew it was dangerous for me. I knew I could get lost in your waters, changing myself into what you wanted to have from me. Yes, I knew I could get lost my own soul. That’s what I felt since the first time I saw you coming.
So soon your waters became murky. My soul got flooded with dirt and mud that I didn’t see first. I was trying to stay in the fresh clean stream of you but I couldn’t. There was more and more mud showing up right in my face. I couldn’t swim anymore; my body felt tired, I was screaming inside. There were many sharp stones in you that I couldn’t see. They were hurting me. They hit me so many times and you didn’t even notice. I was trying catching my breath and keeping my head up to see the end; to see the bank where I could get out; to rest and turn my face towards the sun again. Yes, this river was not for me.
Dear lover, I wanted to say good-bye and wish you well before I got out and left you. And you didn’t even notice.
