The Call of Connection

The yearning is to connect. Deeply, powerfully. To the Universe. To Spirit. To God. The word doesn’t matter to me. The feeling does. The desire that rises off of my skin. Dances in my heart. Pulses wildly in every bit of being. I want to feel in alignment with The All That Is… to sink into the remembrance of who I am.

It rose up in me. Without intention. Without awareness even. There is was. This longing. For more. For deeper. I recalled this summer, at a workshop. I walked into the sacred room. I felt full. I was cut from the old stories and could be present. For the week I let go of the crutches of sugar and bread… with ease. I wasn’t in need. I was connected. The desire to recreate that began to smolder and then burn with greater ferocity. It was a call I could not ignore.

At first, I began to do what I know to do. My mind took over. Using its skills it wanted to formulate plans. Meditate. Set intentions. Find a teacher. Dig and process. While I love all of that, I would suddenly fall asleep in my meditations. My intentions would be muddy. No teachers came forward. Processing got me no where. My mind, it seemed, would have to come along for whatever ride was being offered.

So, I surrender. Into the desire. The yearning. Surrender into the awareness that I do not know what this looks like. I do not know how to get it. I can only know that there is a calling that is anchored to every bit of who I am. I commit to letting that lead me. Into the fire. Into the heart. Into me.

The answers come swiftly. I see that this is not a wild mystical roller coaster, as had been my previous experience with the call of connection. The opportunities are grounded in the now. In the blessed moment where the physical and the divine meet… where we all live. My only job is to trust that yes indeed, these are the the breadcrumbs I have asked for. I get to walk the path.

The connection begins with myself. To my voice. To my heart. Knowing the spark of The Universe that lives inside me. Connecting to it. Allowing it to fill me. I am given the experience of seeing the holy inside of others. When I do, my fire flares. I feel the presence of the Universe in amazing ways.

I have no pretty bow for this story, because I am living it. This is just the beginning. The yearning is present. The opportunities ripe. Anything that is in my way comes forward so that I can clear it. I find the moments of connection at every turn. My job is to take them. My job is to answer the call of my desire.
