(This is a borrowed blog but it was so appropriate I wanted to share it!)
There is a time to remain in one place. There is a time to step out. “Now” is the only time it can happen.
I have seen the folks who try to relate all their life right now, to everything that went before. To me, that is not living in the present. There are many who look at someone and only want to know their color, their race, their parents, their age, their numbers. It’s all BS. Meaning something that a Bull is supposed to leave behind him, and not try to keep inside him.
Have no idea why all this is coming right now. But it is time to step out of this box. Whatever that means for you, I do not know. But for me, right now, a new moment is here. And I am out of the box of the last moment.
To me there is no value in boxes, except maybe for gifts. Then when the box is opened, and the gift inside is removed. The gift is supposed to come out of the box.
Then why do some keep themselves in a box? This box, that box, the “Oh, I’ve lived here all my life and my family is here and I could never move” box, or the “I’m too old for that” box, or the “I’m too young for that” box.
That’s one thing I do not like about most standard houses and buildings in the Westernized type world. They are boxes. Square corners, flat walls, one built just like every other house in the neighborhood. Ticky tack houses. Cookie cutter “homes”. Boxes… For “rich” people, Million Dollar Boxes.
That’s why I like to travel in my car, and sometimes camp in my car, or outside. I can get out any time of the day or night and see the beauty of this planet all around me. I can experience the crystal star night at Kilauea or Mauna Kea, or the hills of Missouri.
So maybe all this is just a rant for this moment of time. My heart yearns for more right now. My heart yearns for the freedom that cannot come with a physical body, the “box of the spirit”. And it can be free of that box. I suppose I should give some “spiritual” cute message here. But I can’t.
I, along with many others, am moving on. I am through with this place. I am moving on out. The key is “moving”. No boxes. Not for me.
