Lately, while driving, I notice that I have meditative random thoughts. A couple times, I scribed them to a memo pad app on my phone (via my mic). Today was one of those days and I thought I would share my yogi thoughts….
So, today, for some reason, I thought about why my husband and I like movies like “The Revenant,” “Cast Away” and “In the Heart of the Sea.” Some of my friends find those movies boring and uninteresting. We are on the edges of our seats watching them. Why?
So, that led me down a path of thinking that through. We love to watch personal strife. I started wondering if this is because we both have created a lot of personal strife within our own lives and are learning how to manage it each and every day. We are on a path of achieving higher consciousness. I’m not saying we are in a better place than some of our friends; maybe our friends have already achieved this consciousness and are not as interested in people overcoming it anymore or maybe they are not at that stage in their development.
So, then as I continued on my mindless commute behind school busses and garbage trucks, I had the thought that perhaps my husband and I are reincarnated over and over again to find each other and go through these journeys together. And each of us helps the other get there a little faster. (Someone should write a book about this! Ha!). During this lifetime, our main objective has become to find solace and get away from unhealthy relationships and unhealthy patterns. We’re mind and body focused and search for ways to retreat out of it. I mentioned the movies above, but I also see how we relate to people like Eustace Conway, who Elizabeth Gilbert wrote a biography about called: The Last American Man. What a fabulous book about a man’s personal strife constantly being torn with the urge to teach people how to get out of society’s mold but had to live within society’s mold in order to get the word out. Boy, I can relate! I want to flee every time someone rubs me the wrong way because I don’t like the community and/our culture that person lives in, but I know when we move to our island, we’ll face similar problems because of the type of town it is. It’s a small town and a is similar to stepping back in time. There are things that are relaxing and simpler when you think of stepping back into the 1950’s, but there are also some very negative things that we have moved past in today’s society. So, will it really be paradise?
After this path of thought, I realized nothing matters. I’ve said it here before, but some days I believe we are just a bunch of ants working towards a goal of someone else. Even though our input matters at the time we give it, in the large scheme of things, if someone came and stepped on one of us, the rest of the ants would keep going along with their goals and find a way around it.
So why can’t we step out of society’s version of ants and find our own queen and our own path?
Or maybe it is just our ground chakra is out of alignment.
Until next time, I’ll keep thinking of ways out of the rat race. 🙂 You’ll find me here! Good day folks!
