Heart, Soul and Mind are our spiritual essence. We are swimming in a spiritual sea. Floating on a spiritual ocean. Drifting in a current of spiritual flow throughout our life and beyond. You wonder how I know? I don't know. And I take comfort in knowing that I don't know and trusting it to be so nonetheless. I also take comfort in knowing the lines between Heart, Mind and Soul are too fine to be seen with even the most powerful microscope. Microscopes cannot go where Soul, Heart and Mind dwell. That is like Logos having a cup of coffee with Mythos. Worlds apart in the same world. There is no understanding this. No figuring it out. Only floating on the endless sound of spiritual waters. Left Brain and Right Brain in the same head. Laughing and dancing together. Playing and humming along. We should join them in the laughter and the play. Just dance. Just sing. No thinking. No saying. We are always only a short perspective shift away from having the time of our life. Enjoying the best company in the world.
Making the best of our life and what happens there is the best we can do, expect, ask for, hope for. Making the best of it doesn't mean getting/having what we want. We can always imagine a better world than we can live in. Adam and Eve thought they could improve paradise. We join them in screwing things up all of the time trying to make them better. Making the best of it doesn't mean making anything better. Leaving things alone, letting them be what they are, giving them permission to be, works with colts, and chicks, and butterflies struggling to be free of the chrysalis. What we don't want can be the best thing that could happen to us. Making the best of it puts us to the test, and requires us to sit with it for a while, listening, looking, wondering what's best and where to draw the line.
Who, okay, whom, do you know who has more questions than answers? If you know anyone, I'd like to have their contact information. The people I know are so wrapped up in their agendas and opinions I have the same conversation with everyone I talk to. I could replay yesterday today and not know the difference unless it's raining. No one knows what they don't know, or even that they don't know everything worth knowing. No one knows what's what and what to do about it, though everyone thinks they do, and if we would only listen to them everything would be great. Everyone thinks their way is the best of all possible ways. How did they arrive at that conclusion? They just jumped there. They are all completely incapable of evaluating what they just said, or what they are about to say. But they can evaluate with enviable expertise what everyone else says. I don't know how I fell into such company. It's always been there. Everywhere I go. My happy fantasy is hanging out with people who have more questions than answers, and playing the game of seeing how many questions our questions raise. With all answers being tentative and provisional, and no absolutes of any kind allowed. Conviction and certainty would also be unwelcome.
