Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Gravity is a mysterious, unseen force that grounds us to the earth. With out it everything would float freely. We are able to get a glimpse of weightlessness through the experiences of astronauts in zero gravity. I’m sure you would agree it looks like fun. But have you ever been in Wonder as to what it would be like to flying about being unencumbered by gravity? Imagine just how it might feel so be so light and free of weight.
As is often the case, in my journey of Wonderment, a thought will float freely into my head. This free flowing thought will peek around and find just the right place to rest for a bit, nudging places in my unconsciousness to join in, take off and begin exploring down a new path of Wonder. And so today, I began wondering about Gravity and how eloquently it goes about its business keeping us all safely tethered in. It does such a good job with all things physical — a job for which I am very grateful. But what I recognized through my Wonderment journey are all of the other things that have no need for Gravity.
My wondering journey took me to the idea of thought itself. How thoughts flow freely when we quiet the noise.
My wondering journey took me to the idea of love. How for a heart bursting with love, no force can contain it.
My wondering journey took me to the idea of peace. How peaceful stillness and intent can be felt in an instant.
My wondering journey took me to the idea of sound, and light and color . . . all magical, dancing frequencies.
And then my wondering journey took me to the path of illusion. I wondered about all the dear ones who feel weighed down by fear, by anger, by hate, by sadness, by all the stuff that no longer needs to be tethered in the physical — by gravity. Our spirit is not defined by gravity, our soul yearns to play freely, and we are ALL meant to discover the fire within our hearts!
Let go, be light, float freely . . . in wonder . . . in discovery and beyond!
in love, peace and wonder,
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (May 1881 – 10 April 1955) was a French idealist philosopher and Jesuit priest who trained as a paleontologist and geologist and took part in the discovery of Peking Man. He conceived the vitalist idea of the Omega Point (a maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which he believed the universe was evolving) and developed Vladimir Vernadsky’s concept of noosphere.
