Sometimes I feel like I’m so fucking close to that place… The place I’m supposed to be. Whatever it is that my soul had intended for me before I came into this life. I feel so close. And it’s amazing. I have these moments where I’m out of this world happy for no reason. Or actually, for every reason. It’s hard to explain. Like today, as I was driving home from work, out of nowhere I was high on life. Nothing happened to make me feel that way. I wasn’t thinking about anything in particular. It’s just this flowing feeling that sort of takes over. Almost a buzzing… Like that awesome feeling you get right before you sneeze, but exponentially better. And I can’t help but smile. I rolled down my window and smelled the air. Looked at the sky. The trees. The flowers. The rabbit that ran across the road in front of me. And my daughter sleeping in the back seat from my rear view mirror. Then I offered my gratitude to the Universe. I love those moments. I think it’s called “oneness.” Or at least it’s how I think oneness would feel. Like an effortless love of everything… Including myself.
But those moments don’t last. They come and visit me briefly then move on. And I return to my former self. A version of me that’s struggling just like everyone else. But I’m one of the lucky ones. I get glimpses of what life is supposed to feel like. Most don’t, or at least not yet. Most of you probably have no idea what I’m even talking about. Yeah, yeah… I’m crazy. I’m okay with that. I’ll be the crazy one that talks about ascension. No big deal.
Those moments though… They change me. Ever so slightly. Each time I get a glimpse of true, unconditional self love, a tiny piece of it stays with me. And you know what one of the best things about self love is? It makes it easier to love others. All others… Like, literally everyone. Weird right? And in those moments, everything makes sense. There’s no room for fear, or hate, or intolerance. Because everything is just as it’s supposed to be. As fucked up as that may sound, everything is just as it should be. Life is crazy, man! It’s a fucking trip, right? I mean, this is where you live:
You’re a human being living on a spinning ball that’s revolving around a star. Whaaaaaat??! Puts things in perspective, eh? I think we all need to lighten up a little bit… Stop taking shit so seriously. Besides, if you believe that emotions are contagious, which by the way I do, than being all doom and gloom is counterproductive. Right? If you want to be surrounded by peace, and love, and light, then you have to be peaceful, loving, and full of light. Let it shine out of you, to lift others up. Ya know? It’s so fucking simple, yet simultaneously seemingly impossible. But we all hold that knowing inside of us. And we’ve all experienced it’s power. Most of us just haven’t identified it for what it is.
Just take a second and think about those moments… The ones where people use terms like, “We were vibing,” or, “The room felt electric.” That shit is real. What you’re feeling and absorbing is other people’s happiness. Feels good, right? Maybe you felt it at your graduation, or at a concert, or some other type of celebration… But we’ve all felt it before. We’ve also all experienced the opposite. When tragedy strikes, or loved ones are lost, our sadness, grief, fear, and anger impact those around us as well. When you think about the power of our collective emotions it’s pretty amazing. We totally have a choice which direction this world will go. And we’re living in the craziest of times. But some of us… A lot of us… are choosing love. It’s a revolution of sorts. A contagion. But a good kind… Besides, aren’t you guys exhausted by all the negativity? I mean, I get it. I do! The world is kind of a scary place these days. But, honestly… It’s fucking tiring. Y’all are inadvertently dragging each other down when we need to be lifting each other up. The answer is inside of you. Just love yourself. That’s all. No big deal, right? You can totally do it. I can too. I have faith in us.
Now grab your glow sticks. Let’s jam.
