I woke up this morning with this quote in my mind. Gandhi shared this with the world so long ago, and I wondered why I woke up with it. Maybe it was because last night, while meditating right before going to sleep, I asked about how I could be myself and help others be themselves, too.
For a long time I’ve been aware of this feeling of wanting to ‘fit in’ somewhere, but never feeling like anything quite fit. In some groups it has felt distinct… like there was an invisible barrier up, and in others it just didn’t feel right.
I thought of people I know who share this same sense. Not in a bad way, as in “I don’t belong” or “You don’t belong here” … more in a way of… “Where do I belong?”
I am happy where I am, happy with my life, and yet I sense there’s a community out there to which I am gravitating toward. In the last couple of months it has felt like the flood gates have opened for souls who are a ‘fit.’ The conversations are easy… the time flies… the energy flows. It feels good.
So… my wondering today… What change do I wish to see in the world? Hmmm….good question.
