Email to a new Friend about to go travelling…
It’s Full Moon.
Where we come from is largely known to both of us solely from the personal presence shown by one to the other.
It is a transparently good place or I should not be writing you this.
The direction where we are going is a mutually encouraged movement which has all of the same attributes as those of a grand meal – expectation of savours, many unknown – but without any sense of fear or alienation.
Cleave to your journey, O pal.
Stay alert, record and share, discuss and digest.
Be open, humble, respectful of all you meet, judge none, avoid none, give full attention.
The butterfly effect operates only at such a distance that it is out of sight. Your smile is seen. You move on. That life-affirming energy aroused by your smile may engender springs of hope in individuals, families, cities, entire populations which you cannot and need not understand.
All you need to understand is that you have immense latent power. It is the power of choice to smile.
Turn away only from those whose minds have diverted far from life’s glory that they see only negation and fear. You do not need to be smeared, in mind, heart nor body.
Only see the myriad tiny things, because in the end our lives are upright and we survive only because we are intimately and eternally supported by the microcosm of everyday sublime simple beauty.
Never ever pass up the chance to giggle.
