You-niverse

“Do not feel lonely. The entire Universe is Inside You.” ~Rumi
When we are born, we enter into a multi-sensory realm that is quite different from the cozy, contained watery world in which our tiny bodies and beings floated for 9 months or so. As we emerge from our chrysallis, in many ways like a butterfly, spreading our wings, we gaze around in wonder, taking in all that is around us. Yesterday, while doing grocery shopping, I encountered a mother and her 6 month old son. She had been playing peek-a-boo with him as he was lounging in the baby carrier attached to the shopping cart. I love that game, because it is universal and regardless of the culture, the little one is delighted and since I am easily amused, I get vicarious joy from it as well. I introduced myself to the mom and spoke with the baby, telling him that I was aware that he ‘knew stuff’ and that by the time he was old enough to speak, he likely will have forgotten most of it and would be spending the rest of his life in an attempt to remember it. That is my intention for my own life and what I endeavor to teach others.
If we are fortunate, the adults around us encourage our curiosity. We take in our environment by tasting, touching, hearing, seeing and smelling it all. Sometimes we are admonished not to do so and we shut down our inner explorer. While there certainly is a need for rules and boundaries for the purpose of safety and respect, it is important that we continue stretching our comfort zones so as not to be so restrained as to miss out on the bliss. Clearly this little one wasn’t about to do so as he gave me a big ‘ol gummy grin. I commented to him that there might come a time when he would have a flash of memory about this strange woman talking to him from once upon a time and his soul would make a connection with mine.
That sense of union or re-union with kindred spirits across time and space is one that I value highly, since I meet them all over the everywhere. I rarely feel a sense of loneliness, since I know that everyone I encounter is a potential friend with whom I  can co-create wonder.
What if  we all truly grokked that?  Then there would all of these marvelous little You-niverses intersecting with each other.
