Conscious Community: Contemplating Connections

by Carrie Chesney
 

Connections ... the essence of all human existence. We feel alone when we lack connections to others, and we feel loved when we have many connections to others. Whether they be physical, spiritual, mental, or emotional, we cannot deny that we are human and we need to feel connections, not only to each other, but also to the world and to God. Even a lack of a connection can signify something to us.

Our connections even define us in certain ways. Who we know, what ideals we associate ourselves with, where we live, and what religion or group we belong to are just a few. So what is really important in all this mass of connections? Is it who we connect to in our lives? Is it what kinds of feelings, traits, and ideals we associate with our self? Is it our connection to God that matters? It’s not an easy question to answer, and if you look around you find that different people put a different value on each. Some like to live their lives partying and knowing as many people as they can set eyes on. Some like to spend as much time as they can developing their own ambitions through their own hard work. Some like to spend every free second they have studying some book on religion or spirituality. Truly, I’d like to think that all are important in some aspect.

Humans have been explorers since the beginning of our being, always pushing the boundaries and classifying, categorizing, and correlating different phenomenon and human activity and finding reasons for everything. Something in our psyche urges us to go farther and find out how the giant puzzle of existence fits together. More and more, we find that we are all the same, and that, while we may not agree on things all the time, we all are coming from that same need in our heart: the need to connect, to love, to understand. It will still take a long time for society as a whole to truly realize this, but it is starting to happen among us on a small scale.

What can we do to help start down this path of connection? Again, we can connect, love, and understand. So many people forget to appreciate those around them or even give thanks for what they do have. We could learn how to live our lives fully and make those connections, because in the end, that’s what it all comes down to. Who you’ve loved and laughed with in this life. What you’ve done to put forth something into the world that’s positive and bright. So many people waste their time worrying about what people think, or how insignificant they are in the scheme of things. They take so much time to focus on the negative that they completely overlook the fact that they are the only ones not letting the positive into their lives. It is important to see that connection.

Now, on to those loved ones in our lives right now.

*White Light and Love for... *

  • Our beloved ringleader, webmaster Greg. Hopefully the crises will slow down for him soon, and he will be able to strike some sort of balance and find his ground again.
  • Terri and her family. The little ones are ill, and they will need some healing light.
  • Rusty. Hopefully he’ll also be able to get things in order and come back and talk to us more often!
  • Anyone who has been adversely affected by Saturn or the eclipse or Uranus or any of the other icky transits that just seem to keep right on coming for some people.
  • Anyone and everyone else who I might have missed. It seems that people have been a bit more distraught or foggy-headed as of late. May we all be able to pull together and come through together.

So that’s the white light and love section for this month. Also, I wish Skydancer a very happy belated birthday! If any of you would like to send in some requests for white light and love or birthdays, or any comments you want to make about what I’m talking about, all are greatly appreciated. Just PM me (enchantress299) or e-mail us at metamorphosis@consciousevolution.com.

In closing, I’d like to remind us all to foster those connections that we all have. Tell the people in your life that you do love them. Take a chance on someone you don’t know, but somehow have a gut feeling about. Go out and ground yourself with a conversation to God. Remember what it is that connects you to the person you are, and know that if your life were to fall away tomorrow that you’d still be the person you are because of who you are, not what you do or what you have. Above all, forgive. Forgive yourself, forgive others, and forgive God. It’s the first step to understanding.
