Day 358 – Faith in Unseen Forces
There are a host of Unseen forces of nature supporting you. Keep the faith. – Kute Blackson on Facebook
I was standing at the bus stop riding waves of emotion that were pulling me back to the depths of stillness within before raging up onto my shore. I wake up in this state these days. I wander around all day in this state. I go to sleep every night in this state. All with one thing on my mind that is strangling my present moment to death.
Hiding behind my sunglasses, I had to turn my iPod off because the music was acting like a strong wind whipping up the waves even further until the water was up to my neck making it hard for me to feel I could breathe. And this guy got off the bus.
He walked straight up to me and started to talk, but I couldn’t hear him over the sound of the ocean in my mind and the ear buds still firmly planted in my ears – my signal for ‘leave me the hell alone’. But I touched my soft spot and turned up the corners of my mouth in a smile before pulling the ear buds out. He asked me if I was going to buy a ticket on the bus or if I already had a card. I told him I was going to buy one as my hand grasped down upon the dollar bill and change I was holding, which felt like the only money I had in the world today.
He rummaged around in his coat pocket while offering me his all day pass card, which he said was valid until midnight. I relaxed and smiled and told him no thanks. I told him it would be better for him to find someone who really needed that ticket. I only had one ride to go for the day and I felt like it would be a waste.
And anyway, I thought to myself with a smiling heart, I’m good. I’m supported. I’m touching my soft spot and I have faith.
So, he turned and wandered away as tears prickled my eye lids, so thankful I felt for the compassion the universe was granting me today. He stood about for a few moments more talking to different people. Eventually, he found someone to take his card – someone who needed the support of a stranger today.
And I got on the next bus, dipping only my toes into the waves, and breathed all the way home.
When you can surrender to a moment of nonsurrender.. grace flows. – Kute Blackson on Facebook
P.S. This is a fascinating article that I find to be one of the most important I’ve read on my path.
