Collide

I am doing #inktober again this year, where there is a daily prompt and you have to do an ink drawing and share it to Instagram.

Today’s prompt was ‘collide’ and that got me thinking that most humans ‘collide’ when communicating rather than meshing or melding or gliding together.

Communication, most of which is actually not verbal, is one of the things that humans are most challenged by, yet it is one of the main parts of our everyday life.

Communication is so ego driven from the filters in our mind that portray the story of ‘little me’ in our head and to the exterior world. This means that we rarely sense, see or hear the other person as we are so wrapped up in our story. The thing is, so is the other person, so we ‘collide’.

If we seek to understand and listen to other person, if we let go of our story and free ourselves from the ego, we can communicate with others without collision.

A thought for Sunday

You can’t have cold if there is no hot, tall without short, happiness without unhappiness, light without dark…one thing has to exist in order to know the other.

Everything has its opposite and without it, it wouldn’t exist.

If we only had ‘good’ things they wouldn’t exist as good. That’s why in reality, all things have to be in balance and neither or good nor bad.

However, life has to have challenges in order for us to learn and grow, in order to want to seek new experiences and to become an even better version of ourselves.

We are not here as a ball of energy and light to stay stuck in our minds, thinking, suffering, judging, hating, fearing…we are here for now, to experience light and dark as a human soul.

The universe gives us everything we need and in order to see it we have to stop looking and to just be. Fear creates resistance and blocks our ability to see.

Don’t fear bad things, welcome them as a new experience and know that good things will come as a balance too. None of these things matter, they will come and go as everyone and thing are temporary.

But If we fear them we will never actually experience real life now, we just spend a suffering ‘existence’ within our own mind.

Let go of the mind and its self-created fear and let our love from our soul shine for us and others.

Experience life whatever shape it comes in rather than be unconscious in fear. We don’t have a life, we are life right now.
