Rolling down the hill

Rolling down the hill

Dear Ones,

The first thought that crossed my mind this morning (Monday) as I sat on my meditation chair was, “rolling down the hill.”

Why would it be so? And what does it mean?

A few minutes later, I checked my Facebook messages and a friend asked me to explain my good wishes to her, “Welcome back to the world.”

That’s when 2 and 2 started to make sense, or to add up nicely, if you will.

That ‘rolling down the hill’ has to do with the old world, the one we are leaving.

There are times when I truly wonder what happens and how we can cross these dimensions so easily; not being fully conscious of where we are.

Times when I am so immersed in spiritual posts or discussions that I don’t even notice what goes around me. Then, I go down the hill, literally, and walked the few steps that separate our 2nd floor from our 1st floor and meet my family. This is when I realize that there are (at least) two worlds and that they don’t seem to coincide.

It is usually a question of seconds before I can shake this feeling of cognitive dissonance, of realizing that I have landed back in a different, yet hospitable, universe.

Except that the last time it happened, about three weeks ago, the feeling lasted a few hours, even at the gym during my yoga class.

Is there an amplifying effect at work?

Are we slipping deeper and deeper in to this new world?

A new world that is waiting for our embrace.

Anyhow, “Welcome to this new world!” and welcome to our communion this Thursday!

I look forward to seeing you there, down the hill! 😊

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
