Universe

The Universe is all of time and space and its contents. It includes planets, moons, minor planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, and all matter and energy. The size of the entire Universe is unknown.

The above quote is from WikiPedia.
I see the Universe as a metaphor for our mind and its potential. And yet, the more I expect minds to open and expand as we head into future days, the more walls I come up against.

And I don’t get it. I do not understand it when I run into caged minds because to me, it boils down to this simple essence: Without communication, without even trying, how do you know?

I find this caged thought process sad and ultimately boring. Where’s the fun in having no sense of Belief?

Let’s say this is the only life you live. Then why confine yourself in the shadows of single viewpoints? Why not seek knowledge if you have none? Clarity –multilevel clarity– can be so simple to attain. Negative feelings can be banished by open communication; why remain under a cloud of misunderstanding? Even if you don’t agree, open communication gives another a chance to see your view and perhaps embrace it.

You don’t know until you try, and why not try? It might change nothing; it might change everything. But at least you’ll gain knowledge.

And Knowledge… is Power and Power is Energy, and Energy is the Universe, and that… Matters.

Snowfall

ETA: 03/17/2017 – Well. Devastation it is. Glad we got that settled. Moving on…

Sometimes the very thing you’re looking for
Is the one thing you can’t see

I was shoveling snow from my driveway when I found myself softly singing, “Sometimes the snow comes down in June. Sometimes the sun goes ’round the moon…” 🎶 And I thought… Huh. It’s been a while since I was sent a new #TwinFlames🔥 song… and really? Dare I even hope? (Want to/don’t want to… Ya’ll know how it goes.)

26Once back inside, I looked up the lyrics to Save the Best for Last (as I always do, once I get sent a song) and noticed that this song came out 26 years ago.

Twenty-six.

*sigh*
It figures.

Because, see… I remember this day:

I see the passion in your eyes
Sometimes it’s all a big surprise

Vividly.
And it’s amazing how just one look… can sear to the bone.
Or perhaps I should say seer to the bone, because that’s what he did to me. Each time.

Problem is… I’ve been here before. I’m living the aftermath. And even though I’ve felt what it does to me – or perhaps because I’ve felt what it does to me – I find myself reaching for that lightning bolt again. (Which really makes me wonder: Who’s the stupid one here?) Because while I catch it – and even though I try, I can’t let go 😉 – it rips through me and disappears, leaving me utterly baffled and decimated. Yet I’m left with hope, because of how strongly it hurts and makes no sense.

So when I found myself singing these words, even in the shower I felt the telltale static of rising electricity – Hope in sharp relief:

Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

And I can’t decide if it’s stoked by anticipation or braced for devastation.

I guess all I can do is wait and see.
