Around a year ago I awoke with a sense of loneliness, a small dose of personal pity amidst my normal strength and optimism. In bed alone, missing the smell of my lover, I embraced the feeling of solitude. As I sat inside that emotion, I realized that the same feeling had affected me in life, even when I was validated and adored. I occasionally felt longing for something “more”.
The essence of life is love, which exists within us regardless of our external stimuli. If our focus shifts from “how to receive” to “how to give” the mission of life has a completely new drive. Just as our “need” for love will never ebb, so is true for our ability to give. So, I offer this experiment which I have half embraced but now want to fully move into, together with you. Let’s be more creative with how to offer love, without condition to receive. This includes kindness to strangers (smiles, greetings, sharing food, etc.) kindness to the environment (planting seeds, picking up random trash, etc.) and offering of forgiveness to family members and friends. It also includes volunteer work, any kind you chose to invest your time into. In this experiment, I will also attempt to fulfill that longing for “more” with non-human sources: nature, spirit (meditation), exercise (movement of energy), and artistic inspiration (books, movies, galleries, etc.)
If life has any meaning at all, it must begin by transcending the feelings of self and shifting to a giving of energy to The One – “One” being the energy of all beings interconnected, guess you could call it God energy. The perpetuation of our species, the perpetuation of our planet, and the perpetuation of our soul is reliant on our individual ability to transcend “self” to work for the greater good. Let’s do our bit, let’s begin that here, together.
If you join me on this experiment, please update me with your emotions through this process as well as any breakthroughs (emotional, spiritual or otherwise). You can leave a comment here on the blog or just drop me an email: email@example.com – I need to connect with you as much as you need to feel me. Let’s do this, together!! All my love x
