I only have 6 of these emails left, can you believe it?
I did skip yesterday, so there's that. Some might say that voids the whole #30daysofemails thing, but whatever.
I was being in the present moment. Enjoying every bit of this weekend, especially as the after shock of the transition began to soften.
I don't really know what I was expecting to occur when I got here.
I don't think I thought too much past getting on the plane, actually.
I certainly wasn't super prepared to come face-to-face with old belief systems, and deep-seated fears and insecurities.
I definitely didn't anticipate having to take such an honest look at myself... if I am being honest.
I am still digesting and processing the things I have learned. I am still hiding a bit and retracting into my safe space.
But I think that's ok. More than ok.
This idea came to me yesterday,
What if I lived my entire life as if I knew nothing and everyone else is right*.
I said this to myself:
"What if for a day, you just took the phrase, "I know" out of your vocabulary.
I know what is going to happen.
I know what that person is feeling/thinking.
I know the truth of creation and the Universe.
I know what I am doing.
What if you just decided that you in fact, actually have no idea. About anything. And everything is open and available for exploration.
Because if you know nothing, then anything is possible. "
And the second part of that, is that everyone is right*.
The * means thats everyone is right, in their own experience.
Their experience is probably different from yours, but they are right, from their perspective, just exactly as you are right from your perspective.
What if we looked at challenging relationships, political and religious discrepancies, lifestyle choices, cultural differences and really, just any and every interaction with another human, and remembered that each one of us has a lifetime of experiences that have culminated in each of our position/belief/ideas/reality/whatever.
You have yours, and I have mine.
They might be similar, they might be polar opposites. We are both right, because that was our experience.
Anyway, I dunno.
Just some food for thought. Chew on it and let me know what comes out the other end. ;)
It made sense to me, so I thought I'd share.
We did acro yoga in a beautiful park on Saturday with some lovely folks and that was a freaking blast.
Yesterday, we got some plants for the apartment and enjoyed the sunshine on the balcony. (Sorry to you guys with the snow. ;))
Life is a dream.
Sometimes, it's hard as shit, but even then, it is still a dream.
