In the Centerville river that runs along East Bay Road here in Osterville, Massachusetts, a Great Blue Heron takes a moment to reflect on his image reflected in the body of water beneath him…or maybe he is still just stunned over the special election that transformed the legislative agenda in the United States Senate for at least the next eleven months before the 2010 mid-term elections in November. Perhaps he has it right and is not “thinking” at all. As a collective, we human beings are addicted to thinking, and hence, have little time to reflect on anything that really matters. This addiction to thinking, whatever it may be, blocks our ability to express Love that is within us ALL, even our so called “enemies”. It is this insistence that we are right about “things” that leads us into the world of trouble we are in as a species on whole. This is the basis of our society, a consumer based society, that needs to continue, or should I say, “thinks” it needs to continue on in the same general path that has lead to it’s destruction. Destruction of values, morals, and a way of living that makes us internally happy. When I look out at this magnificent animal, I often wonder what it may be thinking. I can assure you of one thing, he is not concerned about the “special election” that happened yesterday in the great state of Massachusetts. Apart from his desire to feed his form with a fish, he most likely is just BEING and is perfectly content with the NOW and therefore, does not “need” anything other than what has already been provided him by creative intelligence. My sincere hope is that we all can become more like this blue bird, not so much in form, but rather in essence and connectivity. Have a wonderful Thursday! Peace~ M
