My friends had just returned from their adventures in India and Nepal, with Cosmic Tales of Synchronicity that you simply couldn't make up! Even though most of me sat enthralled in the Wonder and Majik of it all, there was a little part that yearned of such highs and connection to Spirit in such Grand and Majestic of ways! That little part of me could only sit at their shore and lap up the tiny drops that floated to me from that cosmic sea.
And, in true synchronistic style of the new age of awareness, the man on the telly is talking about the definition of Spirituality, which is a bit odd as its Emmerdale. “Each their own” I mused and then, like a frieght train of memory running through my mind, I remembered how I’ve sat there when the light of my world went out and I’ve sat there when I was blinded by the escapee light shining out. Many times the moon has chased the sun that chased the moon around and still I breathe, I am alive and I will wash those dishes and feed my kids and nurse those knees, dance within the twinkle of my children’s eye, and sink into their laugh, drink down the smell of cut grass and breathe in the wind that blows amongst the trees, rock to the great rhythmic sound of the ocean and feel the warmth of the sun on my cheek.
Just being within life is Spirituality to me.
“Past the sauce mum” said my youngest, who immediately gave out a little yell as his tiny tooth plonked onto my hand, squeals of delight whistled through the gap and I was whisked back to the three days and three nights, of raging temperature, tears, trauma and no sleep, that flooded out lives, whilst getting that wee thing to sprout out!
Thank the gods big teeth are so much easier!
And then I looked, and then I saw, my youngest son had just stepped over an invisible line that had been drawn a millennia ago. They’re growing up!
A new era had dawned, right there in the middle of pizza, Emmerdale and my cosmic musings ,that my children and my life, in all it's humdrum extra ordinaryness was Spirit in Motion. And in that moment we 3 were splashing and playing in that Great and Wonderful Sea!
