WHAT ARE YOUR DEEPEST FEELINGS –
THOSE FEELINGS WHICH SURPASS EMOTION?
DO YOU REMEMBER?
Boomerangs are wonderful ancient tools built and used by our Australian Aborigines. When the boomerang and you are in harmony, you throw it and it comes back to you. Amazing!
Life is the same – when we plant our desires in the ‘field of possibilities,’ we give them life. And when we give them life, they come back to us, just like a boomerang. Sometimes we forget those desires, those deep longings, because responsibilities and what we ‘should’ be doing take over and cause us to forget, but Life never forgets!
I too had forgotten…and then I remembered. I remembered that since I was a child, my deepest longing was to know the ‘why’ of everything. One school morning in 5th grade, I asked so many questions that Sister Justin forbade me to ask any more for the remainder of the day! I was sin binned!
It’s only in recent years I’ve come to realise that the answers I sought were really an understanding of Life itself. This was a big understanding I longed for, so it’s not strange then, that such a big understanding has taken me all my life to understand. Not that I’ve reached all understanding, that will not happen until I return ‘home’. Until I’m back in the world of Spirit. When I look back, I can see that in order to understand Life, one must experience it – ALL of it!
The more I came to see Life’s reflection in numbers, the more I came to understand Life itself – its past, present and future and its interaction with our own personal lives. The pain and loss, the regrets and timidity, the courage and humiliation, the failures and successes, the loneliness and happiness, the neglect and rejections, the beauty and ugliness, the love, peace and joy…
Perhaps if I had known that in order to get what I so longed for I would have to experience hell, purgatory and limbo as well as heaven, I might have thrown a different boomerang, one that would perhaps bring back some sort of mechanical knowledge instead. But then again maybe not, for to understand Life and to be able to help others also understand is the greatest blessing I have been offered.
What are your deepest longings – those feelings which surpass emotion, those deep longings which come from the very depth of your soul? Acknowledge them and love them, for they are Life itself calling out to be expressed, in ways that are uniquely yours. And…you’ve gotta love that!
