A Moment in Time: May 25th, 2012
Well hello again! I hope these previous weeks have not been too challenging and that you have been able to keep your eyes looking up at the stars while your feet walk gracefully on this beautiful Earth. Last time I wrote about the day when my mother was rushed to the hospital and instead of worrying about her condition, my “Big I” suggested I should be happy while I continued my duties so my mother could benefit from my happiness even if we were separated by 5,300+ miles. She’s home now with my dad back in Wales and even though the doctors are still practicing all the necessary tests, what is most telling is what she was able to say once she got to talk to me on the phone.
So it works! To be content and at peace while sending our energy to someone that is in need of it, no matter how far that person is, WORKS! And why does it work? Because even if our physical eyes don’t see it, we are all connected as drops of the same ocean; and if I as a drop feel peace, this peace is transmitted to other drops that are open to experience the same. That’s the secret, if you are not attuned to that which you wish to experience, you won’t be able to live it.
So while I was refueling my contentedness with the news that mom was doing well for now, I suddenly perceived the melody that played discreetly as my background. Perhaps many of you will remember it. It’s funny how songs, books, or any piece of recorded information can mean something to us the first time we take “possession” of them and then, many years can pass by until somehow they get back to us, to show us their ‘new’ meaning, one we hadn’t considered the first time. “Easy” was sung by Lionel Richie while being a member of The Commodores during the late 70s. At eleven years old when I first heard it, nothing rang the bell. Since then I had loved this song without even elaborating on the lyrics, shame on me, yes. But I could now listen to its ‘new’ meaning and of course, it was finally ringing the bell!
“Ooh, that’s why I’m easy, I’m easy like Sunday morning” was the chorus that echoed in my mind while my heart filled itself with amazement. I couldn’t believe that after thirty four years we as a society could still be thinking that all that we deserve is to have ONE easy morning. It impresses me to observe how we still believe routine is what lead us to success and that all we can afford while living our exhausting 7-day weeks is one easy Sunday morning. When I use the word success I’m pointing at a purposeful and joyful life, because deep inside, this is what success truly is, and even if it is not on a conscious level, this is what we all dream of. Who has said that we can’t be productive at the same time that we’re living ‘easy’? A long discussion I know. I will leave you for now with a short video so you can dance and be easy for a few minutes and while you are at it perhaps think about this question:
Are you living as ‘easy’ as a Sunday morning?
Don’t forget to send me your comments, I love them and I love you!
