Annoying Line -- Glorious Light

Many years ago, standing in an insanely long and slow check-out line at a grocery store in the mountains, I was one cranky person. Mad about the line, mad about how slow the clerk was, mad about how slow the customers were -- I was just plain mad about everything. Didn’t these people know that I had places to go and people to see and, for heaven’s sake, mountains to climb (because, after all, it was a Saturday)?

Fuming to the point of steam escape, I suddenly felt a stillness settle in all around me. Then the time-space continuum shifted (or I went temporarily insane) and I saw the most glorious light moving in and around all of the people I could see. What I thought separated us was just an illusion. The people around me were not, in fact, flesh and blood, white and black, large and small, American and European -- they were all just light. Luminescent light. It was as if, for a second, I was given a glimpse of our true nature and our true connectedness.

It wasn’t the first time in my life I’d had such an out-of-the-normal experience, so instead of freaking out I was very, very still and drank it in. And smiled. Big time.

All of the annoyance filtered away and I understood in that moment that we are all the same; we are all of the same -- spiritual light. I was intensely a part of everyone around me and even though we were on separate journeys to discover our own distinct amazements, we were all one.

We are all one. On a spirit-trekking journey to climb high and fall low; to love and to hate; to learn and to teach; to grumble and to cry; to wonder and to ask why.

And this, my fellow spirit-trekkers, is a place to share our stories, our experiences, our fears, our doubts, our dreams, our nightmares, our highs, and our lows. This is a place where we can travel together and support each other on the journey.

So, let’s be off -- to the edge of the mystery and beyond the veil that separates the illusion of cranky and slow and mad about nothing to absolute pure perfect joyful luminescent light!

Post a story, an experience, a dream -- and let’s muse the Mystery!
