I find it useful to start such an endeavor with a righteous inquiry into depth concepts and today's question of the hour is what does it mean to be whole?
Every living thing, human and alike, is a galaxy of divine complexity and there is no way to understand the depth of another's wholeness. In fact I find it quite difficult to grasp my own sense of the complete within myself quite often.
As a reiki healer I am attuned to the balances within others chakra systems, I can feel needs and wants and I can divine messages that might guide one toward a sense of balance. I can do this with myself as well by tuning into my body.
Sidenote … as I look out the window right now I just spotted this radiant little yellow bird in the pine tree and as I tune into what he has to say it is quite clear that all he wants is the sunshine. He is bringing spring into being by sharing with me the radiance of his breast.
This is an interesting notion that I recently contemplated first by myself and then later in conversation with a Shaman friend of mine. As I sat on my patio days before our conversation, I watched a man who seemed to be struggling with dementia walk along my street. A hawk flew steadily above him following his path. I knew inside myself that this hawk was protecting him. Guiding his way. I saw very clearly the connection between the two beings and how their lives intertwined in that moment so to tell the story that the divine sought to perceive.
So here I am listening to this little yellow bird now and realizing that he just gave us the answer today’s question. What does it mean to be whole? Well a little bird told me, it means to answer the call in the moment, telling your story so brilliantly that you can effortlessly walk in unity with your fellow beings.
Today and every day I pray that each and every sentient being comes closer to this wisdom of wholeness, this knowledge that to be whole is to be alive in your individuality so brilliantly that you inevitably serve your purpose within the whole.
