I was just emailed by Abraham-Hicks and the video clip that was in the email was a question about why dogs risk getting bugs in their eyes sticking their heads out of car windows. The answer was this:
"Because the contrast of the bugs in the eye is a small price to pay for the exhilaration of that ride. And it is exactly the way you felt when you made the decision to come into this physical existence, and it isexactly the way you felt when you knew there would be contrast, and you said the ride was going to be worth it."
Think about that one for a moment.

The Rate Of Change

We watched this video at a leadership conference this past weekend. It is amazing how much our world is expanding each day. As I watched, it dawned on me that humans as a species want to connect with the rest of the world. We are drawn to each other and into everyone else's lives with things like the internet and mobile phones. Every gadget that comes out these days has a way for the operator to communicate with other people!

Are we drawn to each other in this way because we want to be "one"? Is this our attempt at becoming "connected" with each other without having to delve into ourselves too deeply? The answer is there. Humans have gone far from their spiritual roots and have lost their 'self'. So many books and visionary people out there tell us that we are a part of something much bigger and that everyone is connected fundamentally at our cores with every other living thing in the universe. Can those of us who are not so aware feel the lack of oneness in the universe? Is that why we are striving to be a part of people's lives through technology?

Perhaps what we don't realize is that there are many different forms of communication. What we do as a part of our day-to-day lives is just a small portion of what we are truly capable of. A person conversing with another person has many different levels of communication. It is not just the words that they say to the other person, it is also their body language and their tone. Those three things are not all there in modern forms of communication. What sort of tone or body language do we get from a text message?

There is more to a conversation than just words, body language, and tone as well; there is energy. Every single conversation made throughout our days, every gesture or look transfers energy from one person to another and back again. We do it all the time and don't realize it. It is a fundamental thing that humans do with each other and with the rest of the world that we know.

Think about it. Ever have someone's mood rub off on you? Ever run into a friend who is deliriously happy about something? Did you find it infectious? What happens when you come across someone who is angry or upset? Ever feel drained or a bit off center? Some say emotions have vibrations, these vibrations are energy. A person who is down, or upset is probably in a state of low vibration or low energy. We give them attention and energy to try to make them feel better. A person who is happy oozes energy and passes it along to you. Try to take a notice how you feel next time.

But I digress...

It seems as though we have lost ourselves in this new technology stream. I believe, as a race, we feel something fundamental is missing and we're trying to regain what we feel we've lost. The only thing is that everything we need is right there waiting for us to be used, in ourselves.
