The desire to merge

Life is a river

The desire to merge is based on an instinct.

It is a deep knowing in all of us that ultimately all is the One. There is no division, no separation, no other. When we come to this earth, the experience of “form” takes over our sense of reality, but deep inside we know this is just a tuny aspect of trutj.

This is the basis for all searching. We know there is something else and the urge to find it is quite pronounced. We tend to misinterpret this impulse and translate into desire and wants. We think ” if I only can get this next thing, I will be happy”. Money, relationship, intimacy, spiritual experiences. And then we get it – fifty millions, the perfect partner, the closeness with another human being, the amazing spiritual experience – and we are still not …h.a.p.p.y.

Expectation and optimism is turning into frustration and bitterness. “I should not feel this way”, says the mind and is looking for distraction, pleasure, relief. This is how compulsions are being born – based on this sense of “I am not alright as I am”. And then the vicious cycle of seeking without finding starts.

Not once does it occur to us to simply change the strategy. “What more can I do?” we ask – but it is the wrong question.  Just focus all your attention on what you are right now. Not having amazing spiritual experiences ? So what….it is not what this is about.

All this is about is Life experiencing itself through you.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
