Make The Connection

May 26, 2010

Connect the dots
Find the hidden creatures in the forest
A child’s curiosity engaged
Wide eyed excitement
In sequence the dots connect
Revealing one form after another
What wonder

When dots are overlooked
Strange blobs emerge
The child retraces her steps
Finds the missing  dots
With delight, lost dots
Reconnect to the whole
Completing the picture

In this journey of life
All dots matter
Some we have to sit with
Witness their pain
Sidestep the tyranny of apathy
Connect to the love, the Source
See beauty unfold

Hello Nicole,

I am glad you like it. The topic came to me in a dream and turned into a poem. The image I got from the annual garden tour we had in town this past weekend. The dots connect. 😀

Enjoy the play!

I love this, thanks for sharing. Connecting the dots or our journey is so important. Reminds me of a song by Frank Sinatra where he sings “let’s make all the stops along the way” referring to falling in love and taking the time to not rush past all of the things that will happen along the way. In the end we have to go back and connect all of the dots anyway.

Hello Mark,

You are spot on, “In the end we have to go back and connect all of the dots anyway,” and the line from the song is a beautiful analogy for that, to engage in the process, all the parts that we like and even the ones we don’t. Thanks for sharing this, now I will have to find the song and listen to it.

Happy weekend!

Just like before Christ and after Christ, i like to call it as before and after awareness. Everything exists as it is but the perception changes with awareness, thats the connectivity. All that appeared as separate dots are realized as complete by itself and also remain as a part of the entire creation too.
Its beauty!
Just loved your contemplations…thankyou Miruh!

Hello Merging Point,

I like this, “All that appeared as separate dots are realized as complete by itself and also remain as a part of the entire creation too.”

Your depth of insight into this simple playful verse is amazing.

Thanks for adding your deep wisdom to this post my friend!

Namaste!

Hi Miruh,

Essentially everything we see has been connected to us in one way or another. We are lead here to remember the “dots” in between the spaces. If you look at a map, you see dots of places. If you look in the sky, you see dots of stars. If you look at a TV, you see dots (pixels). Dots are everywhere and we are connecting. What a feeling.

Thanks for a most wonderful post.:D

Hello Alexys,

I love this, “We are lead here to remember the “dots” in between the spaces.”
Having this perspective, that all of life is interconnected is the only way we can heal the world.
Thanks for your wise words my friend.

Deep peace to you!
