What connects us all? Is it the air we breathe, the water we drink, the sunshine which delights in shining on us? Oh yes, I believe that those are important connectors in our lives. I think that what connects us is what we want in life. When it boils down to it, barring the necessities of the body in order to live, we want three things.
To be loved.
To be heard.
To be connected.
When you think of an infant, you can see those wants clearly and we admonish those who do not produce what we want. It is universal. No matter from what far flung corner of the world you are from, the want is the same.
Be with me.
Do you know what I”m saying? Does this resonate with you? Are you longing for any of the above in your life? Many times we ache for these and yet, they should be treated as prerequisites for connecting with ourselves and others. But somewhere along the line, I think fear seeped in and it flooded out the trust in ourselves and others. We simply allowed the messages from our hearts and brains to be washed away in the fear-based universe never to be replaced.
But this scenario doesn’t have to be. By shining your sun self on the world, you warm the souls around you with your loving goodness. When you reach beyond your world and comfort zone into the unknown: you find love, you connect, you see yourself and others, you hear the music in voices unheard and you can be with them all in a loving manner. You are a peaceful person, stretching beyond the boundaries of those forsaken in order to shine brighter.
Imagine if everyone’s lives began and continued with the prerequisite of the above being fulfilled. What a wonderful world this would be!
We live in a sad world where bullying takes the lives of others ~ literally. Just where I live alone, there have been so many teenage suicides directly as a result of bullying. It truly breaks my heart that someone feels there’s no hope except to take their own life in order to rid themselves of that living hell. Having been a teacher for 11 years, I’ve seen it myself, broken people lashing out with venom on innocent others, desperately trying to rid themselves of the ugliness they feel inside. The pain and suffering that spews forth from that single feeling of being unloved can forever change the lives of many. I’ve witnessed the ravages left by bullying. My heart has cried for all of those involved.
