Guess what? I have the very vaguest recollection of something said to me on the day I was born. I kid you not.
Yes, I know that sounds crazy but just today, while I sat up at 5am waiting for the sun to rise, I sort of remembered it from 40 years ago. Honestly, I did.
Now, there were quite a few people present at my birth (it was a home delivery with a house full of people) so it could have been anyone. I recall an actual whisper of something into my ear. I also know for sure that it was sweet and that it told me of the blessings that would lie ahead for me. Perhaps it was a prayer? Perhaps it was simply a “welcome”? I mean, it could even have been angels, ancestors or my own soul’s voice saying “oh hi” because it had been here before?
Now, I get that you’re thinking that I’ve truly lost the plot this time (and that’s always a possibility) but I implore you to trust me on this one. So, please do listen to my story a little while longer…
Of course it could have been a dream. Of course it could just be something I saw in a movie. But, have you considered that it could totally be true?! That I remember?
Isn’t that magical?
Isn’t that just why we’re on this planet?
To crack open the magic?
To listen to “wild” stories?
To experience miracles?
To explore the various aspects of “possibility”, both of things we understand and accept and then more importantly of the things which are not widely understood and accepted but are certainly no less of a “truth”?
I thought you’d say YES!
Because here’s the thing. That’s what we ALL want:
To engage the MAGIC,
To understand our PURPOSE,
To explore all aspects of the mystical, spiritual DIVINE and to excite one another with our unique expressions of what we see/feel/taste/sense/remember as we go along.
YES, there it is! I see that little light flickering in your heart’s memory too. Go there…it’s your work!
