In one tiny moment in time, one instant of my life, all the love, compassion, and connection I feel to all of life burst forth to create one choice, one action that culminated in saving one rare yellow lobster and my own life.
I truly believe that what I feel within is what I will see without. If I am fearful and angry, the whole word becomes a fearful, angry place. But if I feel love within, I see a world of beauty and light. This all sounds philosophical I know and yes, I’ve been a seeker my whole life. The uniquely human questions of “Why am I here?” and “How did it all come about?” have always intrigued me. I am a deep thinker but growing older has taught me simplicity. I am content learning about the physical world and my deepest connection to it is the feeling of love.
Not to belabor the idea of love and connection to the earth, I simply wish to impart my sense of awe at how that one tiny moment in time, that one lightning fast decision to snap a picture of the beautiful rare lobster to find her a home, was absolutely profound in its effect on my life.
Every thought, every choice I make in every instant creates my life. I choose love.
May you, my readers, have much joy these holidays.
Have there been moments that have changed your life? I’d love to hear about it.
