The Gravity of Things
We have meditation on Sunday mornings before church, and a few weeks ago my mind went off on a strange tangent while we were listening to some music. I was trying to empty my mind out and when I did something else just flowed back in…
I am powerful and intensely attractive. I have my own gravity. Like and astral body. Like the moon, the stars. You’re drawn to me. You have to look. You’re drawn to me — to my light. To my power and my intensity. You want to get closer. To touch me. To learn all about me. To bathe in the radiance and gain some of what I have.
After meditation I wrote that down in my journal. I haven’t tried to figure out if it means anything but it did make me think about the gravity of things. And I can’t help but wonder, what pulls us in? Into a conversation? An event? Another person’s life?
And what kind of gravity do I have?
What kind of things have gravity that affects me?
The moon, my bed, my friends…heck, my TV sure has a lot of gravity on the nights that I’m tired from a 10-hour day at work.
And are we attracted to things that are like us or things that are unlike us?
That boy I still have a crush on… The job I don’t have… Graduate school…
I think about jobs and activities and people and I realize haven’t been very mindful about what is drawing me in. Or what I’m drawing in.
I wonder if people can feel my gravity. Who feels it? Who responds? And who are the people who are responding to something else? Or the people who aren’t still enough to feel the pull of anything because they are busy pushing or running or trudging against the flow.
That’s all I have for today…just the swirl of questions and the reminder that I do feel the pull. I wonder where it’s taking me.
