Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.
~ Khalil Gibran
At the most troubling times strange things happen. I knew a flip was on the way. I felt it! The super moon affirms it. Yet, the continuity and mathematical perfection of the dance of the earth and the moon, do leave a way to contingency. Made hopeful, I was reminded of this today.
Times like these I turn to poets, philosophy and depth psychology. A mental triangular thought of three words guided me. The last few weeks causality, teleology and synchronicity moved me.
I try to remember the powers of these principles as meaning something special in my life, and as I see the possibilities, as special happenings, in the lives of others.
Today while giving blood to the vampires at Kaiser, my eyes fell upon a father and his son. He had his, under a year, child spread out ready for a fast diaper change. I said, “How lucky you are!” He smiled and tickled the belly of his son.
The child was looking in the opposite direction. “Hello there,” I said.
The child turned to me with a big smile. A hello that would make the whole world rejoice. No teeth and giggling with the power of the cosmos glowing in his being.
I was deeply touched .
“Oh, how lovely. You have made my day… thank you!”
As I walked away from the hospital, I knew that the principle of contingency zeroed in on me in a cosmic moment.
A bowing to my hidden psyche, and a bowing back to the child of the cosmos !
We will be OK !!
