MY FAMILY ARE EVERYWHERE I GO AND I AM NEVER ALONE, NOR DO I FEEL LONELY. When you live with a wide open heart then you find your friends and family wherever you are. There just are no strangers - only friends and family you have never met. It was a magic and miraculous day for me yesterday, in what most people would consider an ordinary life. Firstly I headed off to the city on the train to see a new homeopath. This was the first time I had met his man. It was a meeting filled with joy as he tells me how wonderful it is to meet someone who understands the reasons for working with the body's natural immune responses and understanding the deep truth of holistic healing. Later I found myself in a store and as I was looking around an elderly man came in accompanied by his mature age son. His son was so kind, helpful and gentle towards his father. He reminded me of the time with my father in his last years. I told this man what a beautiful son he was to look after his father with so much loving kindness. He had a shocked look on his face. I guess we don't often tell people the beautiful things we see, nor do we honour each other as much as we could. Following that I headed home on the train and along the way a beautiful man sat next to me. We had a delightful conversation about the JOY of being free spirits and being ourselves. We laughed a lot. As he got up to leave at his station I extended my hand and we shook hands as I told him it was a JOY to have met him. The smile on his face was priceless. My family is everywhere I am. This sharing was prompted by a 'memory' of a year ago that Facebook posted today. I thought I'd share it with you again...
"On the coach to Margaret River this evening and watching the sun set as we pass through Australind. I am sitting next to a beautiful young man named Pramod who came here from Nepal 3 years ago. We talked about family, community and human connectedness. He told me when he travels alone he always ends up having older women next to him who connect. I tell him I never had a son so we agree that for the short time we are traveling together I will be his mother and he will be my son. It is a beautiful thing for me to have a wide open heart that allows everyone to be my family. I am never alone and my glorious sons are everywhere. I tell Pramod that he will find his mother will turn up everywhere! Feeling grateful and blessed." 💖
Truly my life is blessed and filled with JOY in the ordinary. What matters is the heart connections. Dare to connect with someone you 'don't' know from your heart today. I promise you will transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
