Imagine that this Intelligence which pulses in each raindrop, shines in every moonbeam, cascades in every snowflake, and breathes in the Life of every being, is now looking directly out of your eyes, touching with your fingers, listening with your ears, feeling with your senses, observing through your very Awareness. This is Spirit in the first person, Spirit as your one and only True Self, the same and only Spirit looking out from the eyes of every sentient being alive.
Sometimes I have wise things to say. Perhaps not too often! Sometimes I blather on about not much of anything. Sometimes you start the conversation, be it about sports or politics or local events, and I chime in. All of this is fine. But what if I got simpler?
What if on some cosmic level my words fade to the background and all I do is look into your eyes? Nothing to say but so much to be. I don’t want to make you uncomfortable. I don’t want to stare. But I do want to look inside you and celebrate who’s there. Just for a second or two, please.
We wouldn’t have to talk about it afterwards. No analysis of consciousness. But we’d know down deep that there was a connection. And we would be nourished by the moment. “Someone sees me.”
What if I built my conscious day around moments like these, rather than focusing on all the things I do and say and hear? Just looking inside my companions for the briefest of time.
I won’t keep score but I will stay alert to the opportunity when you come my way. And I will raise my face to yours, trusting that you’ll raise yours to mine.
