Thoughts on Our Mortality

Seeing the image below this morning and the Paramahansa Yogananda quote accompanying it brought my circling-hawk thoughts into sharper focus.

Our Earth

“There are thoughts in the temple of silence too great for our hearts to speak.”

I love PY.  I loved “Autobiography of a Yogi”. It is still one of my favorite books.

I think I even cried at the end of the book, fully realizing that he was no longer with us and how amazingly loving his presence and energy must have been—if now felt only through the words he left behind for us to savor.

There aren’t many authors who can do that to me.

This contemplation of our legacy—what we leave behind for others still existing beyond our limited timeframes—this is an integral component of what I’ve been referring to as the Collective Consciousness of our time. These energies that we hold individually and then collectively together are the sprouting seeds of increased awareness that we use to shift those doings and beings of our world into a higher existence and a higher earthciceroconnected65understanding of how ultimately interconnected we all are.

How each of us conduct ourselves and how we affect others during our finite timelines, are the important legacies that we offer humanity as a whole.

Personally, I exist—I interact—I comprehend—I emote—and if I am at all self-aware, I attempt to understand the entirety of my experience.  Sometimes my existence makes a type of sense to me—and sometimes it doesn’t.  But again, we tend to see what we want to see and believe what we feel the need to believe for our psychological well-being at the time.

Those perceiving and believing abilities are how we are programmed to operate right out of the box—from our earliest point of comprehension onward.  These are the survival tools we use to EXPERIENCE life on this planet.

Throughout my years of survival-existence here, I have lived and loved and interacted with many creatures of this world, as well as minutely contributed to life’s energetic signature for this particular time period.  So in my own teeny, tiny way, I have contributed to the greater collective consciousness by sharing my being (the energies that I personally hold) and my thoughts—which are my personal perceptions and interpretations of this life experience.

That’s what we ALL do. We share our energies and our perceptions with each other because we are co-participants in the collective consciousness of this time.   However, as PY explains…

“There are thoughts in the temple of silence too great for our hearts to speak.”

 

So when we are unable to verbally describe our shared experience, we simply hold the energy of that deeply connected silence for each other.

This represents the love that we all share, for LOVE is the frequency of PURE existence best felt by the heart.
