I Hope You Dance

>Twenty eight years ago I was in a relationship with a young man who was a rising star in the corporate world. I was in college at the time, having gone back to school after a brief detour. He was an engineer by education and liked to talk about business, money and science-based subjects. I was and still am a bit of a mystic, and while I enjoyed those conversations, I also liked to talk about spirit and consciousness and “other-worldly” matters.
   I remember one day he said to me, “You should be really careful around who you talk to about those things. People may get the wrong impression.”
   I knew what he meant. There were few openings back then for such discussion. 
   I’ve come a long way in 28 years. Haven’t we all?
   I was watching “The Secret” for the first time yesterday and thinking about all the “credentialed” people who signed on to the making of that docu-drama. It was not so long ago those people would never have allowed themselves to be associated with such a project. Understand that I am not a big fan of “The Secret”….mainly because there is no secret. It’s a clever marketing attempt to water down a few genuinely helpful principles for living in order to appeal to the “quick fix” mentality so many suffer from.
   However, the beauty of it all is that a project such as that was even made and so well received. 
   Whether we are talking about people or trees or chairs, we are all simply energy vibrating at different frequencies. How we perceive and how we use that energy determines not only our own personal world but the world at large.
   Using our gifts and unique abilities to heal, exhibit kindness, show compassion, give respect to all living things, develop an awareness of our inherent connectedness to all life forms as well as one another…participating in these and other growth supporting behaviors brings meaning as well as purpose to what is otherwise just a frequency, a wave of energy in search of a point of manifestation.
   If you don’t tune in your radio, you’ll never get music. Just static. Clarifying who we are and what good we can do to grow and expand the possibilities is “personal fine tuning.” Without it, we’re just so much static energy.
   I hope some day to run into that man I was in relationship with back then. I’d be curious to know what he’s talking about today.
   As for me, I’ve spent those past 28 years fine tuning so I could receive a clearer signal. 
   Don’t you just love the music?
