After reading what another blogger had shared with me via her blog, I meditated on what she said, and what others wrote. Topic was that of isolation, Isolation brings to mind a couple of adjectives When I was in hospital once, due to the physical symptoms my body was having after eating at a restaurant I was placed in isolation, (quarantine). This meant that I was set apart from others on the floor, but I was not alone, although the walls around me meant I didn’t get to see anyone else on the floor, I knew there were other patients on the ward. I was never really alone either because there was always a nurse or technician hovering or doing something to me or around me.
When I traveled during the time in my life when I was going to various places on work, or assignments,, I did so on my own. Stayed in cities where I knew no one. In theory I was alone, yet I was always surrounded by people, so is that alone? When speaking at a large gathering, addressing an auditorium full of people, I would stand alone at the podium, that was not isolation, but I was apart from the crowd. Words and perspectives are interesting aren’t they. In my friend’s case she was talking about her life and family, and her first hand experience with the world of autism. Please see the following link to read Ann’s blog autism. http://annkilter.com/2014/03/05/battling-isolation/
Some of us make the choice to live in seclusion, or to be private, other times the Universe, places us in situations where the isolation is not of our own making, still we are here for a reason, the key to understanding and achieving is to “listen” “learn” and take the next step, There is a time for action and a time for rest. We are NEVER alone, we may choose to think we are, but ALWAYS we are connected to the GOD/Tao . GOD is LIFE.
You may not know the person walking beside you, or coming towards you, but he/she is walking here on earth for a purpose, you may be different, but you are still part of Nature. Whatever your reality, someone else is sharing it with you. Reach out and touch someone today, say I love you and enjoying how good it feels. S M I L E its catching!!!! Blessings today, tomorrow and always. Oyashikiri
