I awoke sometime in the early hours of the morning imagining I had very powerful palpitations going on, but quickly realised this was not what was happening. Unlike ordinary palpitations, this was not just my heart jumping around. My whole body was intensely and powerfully vibrating - in fact the whole bed was vibrating along with me. It was as if it were plugged into the mains! If I had not experienced this myself, I would not have believed it. It was quite intense, but at the same time I was not concerned because I soon remembered what others had told me. It must have stopped quite soon, because I fell asleep again and knew nothing else till the morning. Now some tell me this is connected to our developing DNA. They say this is part of the evolutionary process of mankind and that is highly accelerated at this time. They say we are becoming lighter beings, and that this shaking is our bodies re-aligning with the new energies coming to Earth. I do not know. All I know is what I experienced. I am still here this morning, so I guess that is part of the plan as well ;-)
The trouble with man is he always wants to pick everything apart and find out 'why'. This curiosity has brought him a long way, and that has to have been a good thing. But wanting to explain everything, know it to the 'nth degree', dissect it, chop it up into microscopic little pieces and stick a label on it is like so much else in life, and can be a double edged sword. On the one hand, without it we would still be sitting on our stump, munching on a morsel of mammoth and bashing each other on the head in order to communicate... but on the other we have almost lost the art of watching the sun set into the west, just for the wonder of it; of being able to lose oneself so completely in the beauty of our environment that we become one with it - just because we can; and to gaze at the awesome grace of a bird, or the vibrance and symmetry of a flower, or the tumbling stars spilling out across the night sky, just for that special connection with the divine, and without the need to label. This understanding of One-ness is all but gone in the mind of modern man. I suppose this is how he is able to destroy himself and his environment with such casual detachment. He thinks he knows it all.
Last night I had a shake up. Sometimes it is good for us to be shaken out of our inertia and our mundane acceptance of our daily life. Perhaps this latest experience will bring a new awareness into my conscious mind. Perhaps I have shaken off some old shackles and ties...some of the old beliefs and untruths that have kept me small and restricted. Maybe I have let them go at last, and have awoken this morning into a new world of my own making!
It is often said we create each moment as we go along, and in some sense are re-born every minute. We can shake off the past, revel in the now and welcome in the future.
This seems to make perfect sense to me - so let's do that!
