On one of my walks earlier in the week I had noticed the local City was pruning all the verge trees along the road I was walking. This morning I noticed they had missed one tree! I had to walk on the road! My obsessive mind wanted it pruned to match! On my way back I had to step on the road to let Steve and his dog Moby stay on the path and duck under the unpruned tree. This was the start of our conversation, led of course by a barking song from Moby. We stopped and chatted about animals and how they react to people. Within a minute Moby was very calm. We chatted about how we all influence each other with the energy of our inner psyche. Steve had noted that Moby had become over anxious in recent time as he sensed the fearful energy of people around the Corona Virus. The conversation went deeper into how our lives are not really within our control and we are perfectly where we are supposed to be, doing what we are doing. We talked about the folly of Facebook and comparing ourselves to others. Steve then pointed out how the only tree not pruned in a very long road was perfectly imperfect, as it was the very reason we had started up a most beautiful and heartfelt conversation and connection of things that really matter. It was a gorgeous reminder for me of how much I love to move in the world and connect from the heart, so that I am reminded that we are all together in this greater scheme. It was a beautiful wake up moment for me to see how my mind deems 'imperfect pruning of trees' is actually perfect! I just loved how this this beautiful meeting happened BECAUSE of what my mind perceived as an error (lone unpruned tree)! There are no mistakes, just perfectly imperfect happenings in the greater scheme that our tiny little ego minds cannot even begin to understand their divine perfection. Ahhhhhhhh reminded to love with my own imperfection today. Thank you Steve for your gentle and patient listening Soul - that was such a gift. You have no idea of how valuable and rich a gift that is for me. Thank you Moby for reminding me that my peaceful mind is a healing gift that is the ONLY RICH thing that matters in the greater scheme of this Earthly life. Thank you unpruned tree for today's miracle meeting and reminder!
