Keeping an open mind to the endless possibilities.
I've always had a spiritual awareness that I never knew quite how to explain. Not that I could. All that's mattered is my own understanding. Keeping an open mind to the endless possibilities. The unexpected. But wouldn't it be great to know our loved ones passed are never really gone?
Every day, with them in my thoughts, I feel a welcoming warmth inside. Wondering what life would be like where they are. Is it the one place time stands still? What pleasure it would be to reunite with family...with friends. And the long lost loves of yesterday. Yet, are they ever truly lost? To meet once again in the Heaven's above. Or that special pet you loved as a small child. The one you considered your best friend. Are they waiting for us when our time is near?
I don't know what it is other than an overwhelming mystery. A spiritual awareness. With opportunities to dream and wonder. But what if it was true ? What aspects of our lives do they see? Are they with us during trivial times? Happy times? And times of sadness too? Do they hear our desperate cries for help...for understanding? Are we blessed by family and friends that have crossed before us?
The feelings inside can be a wonderful experience when you can feel the person who passed has re-entered your life in a very special way. It's a connection like no other. A communication from within. An inner connection filled with memories in our hearts. A loving warmth of bonding energies. Touched by those who we interact with through our lives. Can you see the refleciton within my mind? A love of open arms. With open hearts. Accepting and understandings of them always near our sides.
Of course, I have so many questions. But I know they will have to wait as I continue on with my life. Until we meet at the pearly gate. I wonder. Is this a circling experience of who we truly are?
