It has been another great, joyous weekend, the second consecutive one. It’s pretty simple for me to understand why: I’ve been meaningfully engaged with people in person! What a concept during these continuing days of COVID.
During both weekends I spent a chunk of time with spiritually like-minded folks, and we celebrated life through music, arts and crafts, inspirational talk, and meaningful conversation. We even got some laughter and a few quick hugs in too. The time was so much about connection. I felt connected to others, and through them, Spirit. And, Spirit is Love, what we all yearn for.
At my spiritual center this weekend, I got to learn more about others as they shared openly about their lives, as did I. There was an exchange of energy, we gave of ourselves, of our love, to one another. When folks are authentic and speak from the heart, that allows for connection; I get filled up.
In completing our “A Consciousness of Joy” class project, it was insightful, delightful, and inspirational witnessing the creativity and myriad of gifts my colleagues displayed. I’m grateful that that fun, joy, and so much more will continue as friendships kindled in that class blossom. I am becoming more and more a piece of my small community, my heart’s desire.
“…the soul is homesick and…it cannot recover until it finds complete union with its Source.”

I unite with Source through music, literature, prayer, meditation, and being of service. But authentically engaging with other souls is a prominent way in which I feel the presence of Spirit, easing the homesickness my soul feels being on Planet Earth. It reminds me I am not alone, bringing me closer to complete union with Source.
Yes, I’m easy. Just give me some loving, meaningful interactions with other beings, and my soul dances with joy, closer to its true Wholeness.
