Last Tuesday, July 19th was a full moon and it was gorgeous! When I went outside to start watching it, it was still low in the sky so it was big and bright.
As I sat "moon bathing", meditating and contemplating in the glow of beautiful Luna, I so wanted to share it with everyone I love. I immediately texted my daughter, son and two grandsons that live in the same city I live in. Texts started coming back, appreciating that I brought it to their attention. I wished that I could share it with my son that lives in LA. The lightbulb went off...they see the same moon in California that we see in Pennsylvania...just at a different time. So I texted my son in LA, a friend in Carlsbad, and a friend in Tucson. I received texts back. Just like that because of modern technology and the more than ancient moon, we were ALL connected.
It reminded me of the 1986 movie "An American Tail" where Fieval Mousekewicz was separated from his family. While trying to find them, he looked at the moon. He knew that they were "Somewhere Out There" looking at that same moon. The moon kept them connected.
That's how I was feeling that night. I felt connected to everyone and everything. I felt the oneness of all. My heart was so filled with love and gratitude that I wanted to burst. I sat and cried with appreciation and joy. I have believed for some time that we are all connected and are all one, but that night I KNEW it...I FELT it. It was amazing.
My wish is that everyone could have that experience. I wish that we could all have that knowing and live it all the time. You can't hate and do harm to others if you "know" that we are all one - that we are all connected. It's certainly something to strive for. Join me?
