I noticed that my last post which had a small blurb about Kate in it brought a spike in my viewership.
That made me chuckle, but it also made me want to open up my blog to any of you who might have questions for me. I am happy to speak to anything regarding Kate, being adopted, or anything on the topic of body, mind & spirit, healing or making the world a better place.
Have I said this before? I can’t remember. It came to mind again so I thought I would put it out there.
Of course, I can just keep talking about myself here from time to time, but I am happy to talk with others too 🙂
If I were more internet savvy I’d probably post all kinds of videos and have some sort of ongoing talk show or class or some place where we could all converse on the topics of healing that touch our hearts and Souls.
I think the time of humanity has really come where we need to communicate more and build bridges between us as to feel the interconnected web that we all exist within. We can co-create a brighter planet this way.
My teacher always says we are really just living in a small Earth Village.
I will finish here with a beautiful and relevant excerpt from Ilchi Lee’s Calligraphic Meditation book.
Nothing in this world exists in isolation. All life on the planet is connected through heaven, earth, and the empty space in between. From this knowledge emerges a heart of hongik, which seeks the good of all life.
Raise your right hand and look at your fingers. At first you’ll see only your hand. Gradually move your eyes to your arm, shoulder, trunk, and entire body. Feel your body, which connects your limbs as one.
Now expand your field of vision to feel the empty space surrounding your body. Taking it further, try to feel the people, buildings, and nature around you in the same space.
The stars in the sky seem to be separated from each other, but they’re connected as one through the void.
The maple and fig trees in my yard are far enough from each other that the small leaves of one don’t even brush against big leaves of the other, but deep underground their roots are touching the same streams of water.
There is a very beautiful metaphor in the Hwaeom [Huayan] school of Buddhism. It is said that an endlessly wide, infinite, and transparent net, Indra’s Net, is spread out in the palace Jeseokchun, the land of the Buddha. Hanging from each knot of this net is a transparent jewel, and these jewels reflect clearly everything in the universe. Each jewel also reflects all the other jewels, so that a wave arising in any one spreads to all the others, and a sound coming from just one reverberates among all the jewels hanging from the net.
In a world of beings interconnected like Indra’s Net, there is nothing unrelated to me. Each life is different from all others in all sorts of ways, but, in their essence, they are all interconnected.
In their source, all are one. People create differences from that one. And they end up confronting each other because of those differences. Since you and I are different, since you are not on my side, goes the insane logic they create, it’s OK for me to harm you.
From knowing that all are one comes a heart of love for all.
