The following scenes depict various stages of human awareness and how unique each experience is realized dependent upon the individual’s state of mind and being.




 

Scene One – The average being is so caught up in the material world they are clueless to anything esoteric or guiding within their life.  They have no real understanding of the human experience and force their way through a life that leaves them unfulfilled and exhausted.  They are nothing more than machines in a constant cycle of self made delusion about what is important and satisfying.

 

 

She’s a business woman of the corporate world.  Busy with facts and budgets in her head. 

Quickly she walks the city street unaware of anything but the strategies in her mind of bosses, agendas, subordinates, power lunches and selling deals.

 

He’s sitting in Starbucks lost in his head of faraway places and imagination.  He is writing a journal and pieces of stories and is oblivious to the outside world.  Entertaining himself over a mocha coffee, nose in his writing, and his eyes on the pages.

 

Briskly she walks down the city street right past the Starbucks and their eyes never meet.

 

Stop…Rewind…Replay

 

Scene Two – Celestial Guides will attempt to nudge awareness within a human being, however the mindset of the human must be open to receive and accept the guidance.

 

She’s briskly walking the city street unaware of anything but the strategies in her mind and for a flashing moment the sun shines in her eyes and she bumps shoulders with a passerby spinning her around.  Strange she never noticed there was a Starbucks here before.

 

He’s sitting in Starbucks writing in a journal, pieces of fictional stories oblivious to the outside world, and for a flashing moment the sun shines across his pages he glances up and squints in the light.  Strange he never noticed how many people walked by on that sidewalk before.

 

Righting herself she continues walking down the street, his eyes return to his pages, and their eyes never meet.

 

Stop….Rewind….Replay

 

Scene Three – The awakening human begins to be aware of feelings and sensations, coincidences that seem to “talk” to them in some form.

 

She’s aware the sun is shining and the day is warm walking down the city street, noticing Starbucks on her way and how nice it would be to enjoy a coffee, yet she’s late for a meeting and really should hurry. An unexplained awareness comes to her, causing her to

glance in the window, glimpsing a man seated there, she feels a shiver down her arm.

 

 

He’s sitting in Starbucks comfortably aware of the sun shining in the window warming his arms, glancing up from his pages to observe people walking by on the street and wondering about them, he glimpses a woman looking in just then, and feels a shiver down his arm.

 

Sliding her hand down her arm, wondering what that was, simultaneously he does the same, Celestial Guidance knows their hearts almost met.

 


Stop….Rewind….Replay

 

Scene Four – An awakened human trusts awareness and flows naturally with its guidance and has a heightened sense of “knowing”.

 

She is aware it’s a beautiful day, she intentionally reschedules her meeting knowing she can casually walk and stop for a coffee on the way.  Noticing the trees along the street, home to singing birds, how sweet they sound. She smiles as she walks through the throngs of hurried people wondering if anyone else was feeling this joy.  The smile still on her face as she looks into the Starbucks window, her eyes are met by a returning smile, she feels a warm glow inside her and knows he will say hi.

 

He is aware it’s a beautiful day, enjoying the sunshine through the window.  Setting his journal to the side of the table to gaze on the people, wondering if anyone else knew this joy he was feeling inside.  This acknowledged joy now spreading over his face causing, his lips to smile, just as she was looking in.  A warm glow filled him as their eyes met and he knew he would say hi.

 

Destiny is there and all around, when you take the time to be aware of every sensation within your being and surrounding you…free from the distractions of mind filled thoughts it is the angelic voice, the inner guide ready to lead you to your destiny.

Creative, to say the least. I like to see a writer challenge the status quo, and I think this one pretty much did that. Very good and . . . dare I say it again . . . creative.
