Giving in

“Learn to become sensitive to the quiet as well as the clamorous pulls on your energy, your time, your emotions. You are becoming connected- to yourself, the universe, God, and others- in a way you have never been before. To deny these pulls is to deny the connections.”

How powerful it was to read those words today. The world we are living in right now, personally, professionally, as a community, and as whole, is very, very different than what we’ve been used to.

It is both quiet and clamorous- and both energies are effecting our time and emotions; both energies are connecting us to ourselves within, the universe (and even the space within the walls we’ve had to confine ourselves to), God (or whatever/whoever you have faith in) and others- your family who you’re now spending more time with, your friends who you may check in with more often now, your coworkers, neighbors, and even strangers- we are connecting to so many lives- even during this social distancing.

Give in to the pulls- the little “coincidences”, the “gut feelings”, the words you read that speak to you. Let yourself feel, connect, and react appropriately. We all need something to believe in, connect with, turn to for hope…be sensitive the energies around you and listen to what they’re trying to tell you, go where they are leading you, and learn what they are teaching you.

    I love ALL of this, but the final paragraph wouldn’t let go of me. I read it like ten times. “Give in to the pulls- the little “coincidences”, the “gut feelings”, the words you read that speak to you. Let yourself feel, connect, and react appropriately. We all need something to believe in, connect with, turn to for hope” – I have been doing this and it feels right.:) You can spend a few hours feeling hopeless and blue, and then, all of a sudden, something hopeful and wonderful happens. Today, I dragged myself out the door for a run (rainy and cold) only two find two little girls (each in their own yard with a yard between them) around the first corner of my run. The one little girl had a bunny costume on, and the other little girl was showing the girl dressed as a bunny pictures on her phone. There was no way she could see them, so she was describing them to her. They were laughing and had the biggest smiles. So cute! Six miles later, I felt good that I went for a run. I just needed a sign of hope.

    Thank you for your post. I needed it as another reminder to be hopeful and pay attention to the little “signs” that are out there. I will miss you when March comes to an end.

    So true, “It is both quiet and clamorous” right now. Everything seems so much more intense right now and your reminder to tune in and notice can help us to learn and grow from this experience. Where did your quote come from? I love it.
