I went to a beach party late Saturday night, after my shift waiting tables. The party was for someone I really didn’t know that well; yet I was invited. So I thought: why not, plus the night was warm and breezy. I can’t explain it, but this night felt like there was a magical feeling in the air.
After spending very little time in the noisy and crowded party, I decided to talk a little stroll down to the ocean, which was only a few houses away. When I arrived, I found the ocean moonlit and luminous, and I marveled as she inhaled and exhaled her water on the shore. I found a good spot in the sand and laid on my back, staring at the stars, taking it all in. I fell asleep for a while… it could have been twenty minutes or two hours; yet when I woke up, I felt rejuvenated and refreshed. Waking up to nature, especially ocean waves, is so underrated, for I felt so balanced and grounded.
I got up and brushed myself off, flicking off whatever sand was stuck on me, including my face, and began walking back towards home. As I did, I noticed that the party was still going, so I popped in one more time, curious to see what was going on. I somehow started talking with somebody. I’m not exactly sure how it all started, but our conversation felt meaningful and worthwhile, and we seemed to talk for hours on topics like spirituality, philosophy, and what was the real purpose and destiny of our lives. My communication felt so free, and it felt completely effortless to share and express myself.
As the sun began to rise, we decided we’d walk back to town to grab a cup of coffee. As we walked and talked, I was sharing with him that when we surrender, we can feel that we are connected to everything, and live a surreal, magical life. And as if on cue, I noticed a robin pecking on the ground in an adjacent yard, possibly looking for worms or bugs to nibble on, and I knew it felt my energy, because I felt its. Without thought, I stepped a few steps off the sidewalk into the yard and scooped the bird into my hand, and said, “When we are in total surrender, life understands us because we are the essence of life.” As soon as I finished my sentence, the robin flew away, and simultaneously, my new friend’s mouth dropped open. It was one of those miraculous, magical nights, and I will never forget how easy it was to be me that night. I felt no fear, only connection.
We grow up believing we live in a 3-D physical world, and indeed that we are, ourselves, 3-D physical creatures. In this 3-D physical ideation of reality, every individual looks like a living thing with its own individual will. We view ourselves as separate from everything and everyone else. And this interpretation of reality seems validated by experience after experience that appears to prove it so. Every single time we have a disagreement with someone, or something doesn’t go the way we want it to, our impression that we have our own will separate from others, is reinforced. So how could it be that we are all connected, and indeed, all one? Well, the human mind is a multidimensional portal. The only thing is… it doesn’t come with an instruction manual.
