the existential pauses -
i hear you jim - but u have expressed this essential pause ... of space
i walked into china shop and said to the young owner's wife - out there seemed not like the city I know... just now -
everything seemed different -
she said - ah... a moment earlier too -
i went outside - (it's cold weather here)
to tend the shrubs at the store front -
she said - i felt i was not outside - and not inside -
a moment of nothing ? i almost tunneled downward...
i agree with each of us here. I don't know if the comments I make below are to be seen as hot air,
but perhaps they can be seen as.. affirming?
DMT: "...Or perhaps I've become so accustomed to isolation that I don't realize I'm alone and/or lonely.."
that happens at moments but I am seeing more and more ...!
and I agree with Hanginon,
"...i hope you are all able to see we are not doomed to any fate. i used to think that. being alone is not a bad thing; being isolated is sometimes necessary.
trusting the right people with your truths is hard, because finding the right people is hard..."
A reminder to us is we are all learning to know what is good for us - we get to mess up and try - again - it is how any creature learns -
and I think John you are so right - sometimes there are moments when the evidence comes right to us - and we say suddenly - WAIT - this is showing me "that" is for me in my life - whether it be your talent - your strength -
your intelligence - or that someone has been there - who makes you feel ok about you each day -
who loves and supports - in the way they can and do ...
lately - despite those feelings of existentialism - I have started to self appreciate - this has filled the space -
and also I can appreciate the space between us too better -
this is creating a new look at relations -
it's bring hope and expectation into alignment.
this comment though would take over the post -
so peace Jim, peace guys -
