Throughout my life, I have had times when I felt deep cosmic-type connections – quite honestly, they have not been with many people. One in particular has been with the moon. How appropriate the moon is reflecting such a lovely glow this weekend, while I am pondering connections. It feels as if it is calling out, smiling and telling me things will be ok.

I feel this connection with the ocean, the sky, pretty much anything thing in nature. I have the same connection “feel” with words and numbers, of course numbers are all throughout nature so it seems a natural connection. I feel heard and understood by them. I am not sure if this is projection, but it has brought me comfort.
There have been times when I have felt connected to people. Certain people who crossed my path and I felt like I knew them, or we had some sort of understanding of each other. I have only had one time when I connected on multiple levels that felt unexplainably cosmic-like. It was a strange feeling – as if we were to never speak a word to each other everything was still understood. It felt as if they could read my thoughts – the deepest form of empathetic connection I have ever experienced.
I called them friend because I have no other word to describe it, but it is much more than friend. I could look them in the eyes with no pain, or have the feeling of being violated. Make sense? Again, I am not sure if it was projection on my part…but I don’t think so. If it were projection I find that odd that I would pick this person to start projecting on when I had not done that before… Too many questions I can’t think about this now.
I am thinking about connections because 1) I have felt disconnected lately. 2) My mind is racing about different forms of communication. 3) How our global connections are rapidly developing. This is an amazing time to be alive. There is so much information on one hand and still the ability to live in solitude on the other. We are now able to find connections to those who relate to us in a better way. We are able to experience so many different points of view. We are able to watch science and technology at a whim. These are days full of new inventions, ideas, philosophies, art, awesome changes right at our visual disposal.
Yet, we seem to be at a standstill in certain forms of creativity. It feels like it is missing something. It could be the feel of similar algorithms being pumped out losing vulnerability and authentic exposure. I don’t know! I find it all so intriguing. From a sociological point of view, it is fascinating to watch how people respond to the exponential changes happening in our world. I could go off into a rambling session here about robots, and privacy and such, but I will not. Personally, I am thankful for all of the changes going on I see it as a positive – it is a world I understand better.
For me it enhances my life experience. I just discovered that my one of my greatest fears of losing my teeth might not be an issue in a few years! Stem-Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth Right In Your Mouth Come on now that rocks! Did you know that “Statistics show that 70% of adults aged 35-44 years have lost at least one permanent tooth.” I cannot find the actual study(s) for this or the true source so I am not sure how accurate it is, but there is always a little truth in fabricated tales.
I still have two baby teeth so I wonder what the stats are for adults losing their baby teeth. Hmm… My mind wanderings for the day. Happy Saturday!
