Honouring something big

Every once in a long while, something big happens that just blows me away.

It's just so huge that it actually pulls me along on its current, carrying me down its stream into places yet unknown; and all I can do is let myself be transported away.

Those times, although few and far between, stand out in my mind because of the power they exert over me at the time, and because of who I become once they're done.

And they usually originate in something somebody says or does.  In those times it feels like I am suddenly a part of something a lot bigger than me; a lot bigger.

Those are the times that restore my faith, that fill me to the brim with love and thanksgiving.

I find myself in the middle of one of those times right at this very moment.

And I am in awe.

It can be a frightening place, if I let it be, as the direction I'm headed in is totally unknown; yet a part of me longs to follow it, to just let it run its course and carry me away.

So I wait, and watch.  I watch myself as if from a distance - I watch my feelings, my actions and reactions - and I watch as the beauty unfolds all around me.

To those who bring me to those wondrous places I say thank you.

Indeed, thank you for your trust, thank you for your open heart, and thank you for allowing me to be part of your journey.  It is an honour and a privilege and I will be forever grateful for the trust you have placed in me.  ♥♥♥

  1. There is a path to Awe....it isn't a Members Only kind of path, but a path reserved for those special souls who are willing to walk the path with barefeet and an open mind....without judgement, without trepidation for experiences unknown and without any connection to outcome. Swords and shields are recommended,as there dragons that must be slain along the way....but the Awe that carries you will lead you to your bliss.
