During my break at work yesterday I decided to take a look at the news on the Internet, that is when I first learned of the meteor that had exploded over Russia. I even spent the next 15 minuteswatching the videos of this on youTube. I grabbed every one I could to show them what had happened. Most people’s responses were, ” pretty cool” or “Wow”, and after watching the videos they just went about their business.
This event, for some strange reason, had a very strong impact on me. I was overwhelmed with a strong sense of gratitude. That whole situation could have been much much worse. If the meteor had been just a little bit bigger the devastation would have been uncomprehensible. A lot of lives would have been lost.
As I’ve mentioned before in previous blog posts I have been reading Eckhart Tolles books in my effort to break away from my ego. This event was an Ah-Ha moment for me, It opened my eyes to the fact that yes, it’s true, we’re a very small planet in a very vast universe. It’s really not all just about me and the unconditioned environment that my ego has created for me. There really is a whole lot more out there and I have absolutely no control over any of it. This realization gave me an overwhelming feeling of gratitude unlike any feeling of gratitude that I’ve ever had before.
I feel that a door has opened to a new level of awareness for me. With this feeling of gratitude also came a new feeling of peace within me. This level of peace that I feel is something brand new and very exciting. I can now truly see and feel the difference between the conditioned and unconditioned mind.
This journey of mine keeps getting better and better and I am extremely thankful that there was no loss of life, or should I say, forms?
