  • Long and short. Life is long and full and beautiful but mostly it is exactly as it is imagined. Life is short because things can happen so fast. The distance between points continues to contract.

    Again, the World is big and small. Our physical World is such a pretty little thing. The World inside… which is outside… which is all things… is so vast. But somehow people manage to find one another.

    The Universe does have a plan. Its plan is freewill. And fate. We are co-creators in our nature. I was reminded today by Amit Goswami of the distant times of my own little-ness. The people would chant and lurch and then say; "May God's will be done." (It was a little scary but it taught me to look into the Abyss and not be afraid.)

    Strong or soft… that is a good one. Again, both. I will to be soft; with all people, at all times. My will is strong because this softness is the only thing that seems to make any sense. When I falter I cradle myself sweetly into release. I say, "I'm sorry," with conviction, because there is nothing outside. We are all one.

    Soul mates. Yes, they emerge when we have tunnelled through the darkest parts of ourselves and come out the other side. Smiling. I think smiling helps.

    They come round when we are brightening.
