“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” -Rumi
Our ordinary senses make our experiences very real, and rightfully so, otherwise navigating the physical realm would prove most difficult. The senses, so finely tuned, creating such sharpness of focus, it is hard to see beyond the solidity of a brick wall or the thorn of a rose. Senses so deliberately turned to physical life, that other physical senses can be used to pick up input and filter it through the part of the brain originally connected to a failing sensory organ. This, friends, is magic, a miracle, the human condition.
Physics tells us that at the atomic level everything is 99.99% “empty” Space, much like our Universe. Logically, this is hard to imagine or even comprehend, however it is not logic that holds atoms together or spins planets in their orbits. Logic is just a means to understand or characterize, label; a function of the psychical mind. Love on the other hand is an experience, a dance of energy, something that words still lack in describing but you know it when you feel it. As Rumi suggests, Loving through our senses leads to loss or lack, because we see or sense when things pass or fall away, however if we love through our heart, the space in our center where we FEEL, we recognize that if we all were just space to begin with, our connection never really leaves; it just changes.
On this day, I will focus into my heart, my FEELING center, and draw to that space someone or something that I love, past or present. I will observe my feelings. Do I feel lack or do I feel love. Does it change as I change my perspective of loss? 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
