I see the world as a million parallel universes (ie: each and every one of our lives) that are concurrent and happening simultaneously through our own lives. They are parallel because they are all accuring durring the same moment in the universe and on the same planet. I think about how my life is so completely different from the neighbor downstairs and the neighbors across the street and the people on the block and the people in the city. We are each our own little universe living at the same time on the same planet. We tend to cross more universes the closer you are to home or where you spend your time.
My universe is oh so different from a young girl living in Sudan or Pakistan, Yet, because we share the same planet at the same time, we once and a while are effected by someones universe or reality on the other side of the planet. Wether it be man made like the Fukushima Nuclear Plant disaster or a natural disaster like volcano erupting mega-tons of ash and gas and debris high up into our atmosphere or atmospheric warming, we at any moment can be living with the same mandates.
I do think that it is usually the natural disasters that bring more of our universes together and sync’d up the most. I believe that that may be why there is such an amazing, almost palatable energy that is more like a force, strong and powerful, in the feeling of connected-ness. This is a pretty rare thing that there is something so big that happens that makes everyones lives have to focus on the same thing at the same time.
It also happened on 9/11. We all witnessed a tragedy that stirred the same emotions initially. It was a time that no one needed to talk because everyone was thinking the same thing… Holy S**t! Oh No!! Oh god! I was also interested to notice after the silence ended, discussion started and kept on and on and on….
As of now, 2012, we have a wider ideas that are different about what exactly happened that beautiful September morning. We are farther away from the event that set our universes in sync. However we all do still have the memory of what we all saw, felt and experienced. Not one person can say that they did not know what they were doing the first time they heard or saw what happened on 9/11. It kinda trips me out that there is one day where probably 2/3 of the planet were paying attention to the exact same thing at the exact same time. It was a day universes collided!
Anyway, this is no scholarly write so please do not judge my strange ramblings too much. They may or may not make any sense to anyone and it would not surprise me if they dont. But this is the type of thought that my mind ponders all the time. How we are all living such different lives, but we cross paths and are affected by the same things as many others around us. So many tiny worlds doing their own living but all living together at the same time. It is pretty awesome (as in awe not shaka bra!).
Anyway, i will possibly regret posting this thing tonight. It is like my version of a drunk dial. I may have the unfortunate realization after a good night’s rest that maybe i should have left that last rambling in draft form and think about it and at the very least, re-read it! It may not even be cohesive! But i am plowing ahead. Submitting this to you straight and unedited. (disclaimer: i will probably read it in the morning when i wake up and will have to do some re-editing so if it gets cleaner and more cohesive the next time you looked, i have tried to hide my mess:)
But this one is for all of you… In Brean Brown’s endorsement of vulnerability ( you can see it here in one of her lectures for TED.. http://bluepearlgirlsworld.wordpress.com/2012/04/01/listening-to-shame/) Here is my first ever unedited share of one of the subjects my mind deeply thinks about on a regular basis. I am hoping that someone will tell me if they think that i have totally gone mental and need medical help! I wont be offended i promise!
So cheers little Universes! May yours be peaceful in the heart and healthy in the mind tonight!
