we are the world

i asked him what he thought about the idea of having
a responsibility to the world to offer yourself.
he didn't think it was to the world.....he thought it
was to yourself.

i smiled across the table.
i agreed.

and somewhere inside i knew it was the same thing.

i think it's just what's easier for us to see, what
words are easier for us to use and hold. slippery words,
slippery concepts.

every now and then i get a glimpse of an understanding
that we are the world and the world is us and we
are the universe and the universe is us.

every now and then that kinda just slides thru my heart.

it comes in quick, i see it, feel it, and then i have
no words to explain what i felt.

a whole lot of sayings seem really trite to me.
i've heard a thousand times and never even blink when
i hear them.....

god is love.
we are the world.
we're all connected.
you can't love anyone til you love yourself.

things i've heard a million times that roll right on by
me. and then........sometimes i understand them and my
breath is taken away.

for a brief moment, i got this one.....
we are the world.

it's a pretty awesome thought.

Hearing the heartbeat of the universe and enjoying how it matches my own.

hey Ter, the statement that gets me closer to that feeling of knowingness . . . "deeply, we are one".
