71 hours ago, we landed. The helo engine's 'thwap' of the rotor had synced my pulse. Thwap, thwap thwap.
As I jumped to the deck, I felt a sudden jolt. The sky was clear - no thunder clouds in sight. Yet lightning!
What was this sensation? Why was there a rock-festival happening in my lower lumbar -- and yet I didn't get the memo.
Fuuuuuuuuu.. I got work to do.
Eyes closed. Breathe deep.
Thanks for bringing me back to the present moment as the thwap had me imagining life-threatening scenarios.
Now, I'm back. I'm here with you.
I feel so connected to this present moment - and that feels infinite.
I'll stand up straight and respect gravity. I'll walk correctly and imbibe the universe.
Pain wasn't something we learned about in school. Whole worlds collide when pain is present. And it's always present. And it's always just passing by.
When God is with us, she shows up as pain - reminding us that infinite exists in this moment and every moment is forever. Only now and forever.
I hope to experience more pain - whether minor or massive. It's so delicious and mind-pleasing and humbling.
Who doesn't want to stand at the edge of the volcano and want to jump in?
