Blood Cell Cars and Roads of Arteries

Today I was running errands and the traffic was pretty hectic being the day before Thanksgiving and all. I was getting a little anxious and caught up in the stress when I remembered to breathe. Then things shifted into focus. I started actually being in the moment rather then be carried off in the moment and I saw things in a more mindful, interconnected way.

I had a vision in that moment of the roads being veins and arteries as the cars (blood cells) moved along through the system. Every cell (person) going in different directions but all for the good of the Greater Body.

Reality is like a face reflected in the blade of a knife; its properties depend on the angle from which we view it.

-Master Hsing Yun, "Describing the Indescribable"

I've had this experience a few times... noteabily, while on an airplane looking down. Suddenly it appears that earth... perhaps the universe... is indeed one living organism! What a great way to experience the world!

My friend, your words are wise. It is so good to see it all from a different perspective. Humbling to see this great inheritance we are a part of.
Happy Thanksgiving James!

Trev, The world from the bird's eye view is powerful..... and humbling.
Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Peace-
Britt

Trev:

Very cool experience on the airplane. I can see why and airplane trip would lend itself to such a revelation.

I very much feel that the Universe is one living organism. All is interconnected and interdependent.

Britt:

Thank-you. Yes, many perspectives are very beneficial. It is like seeing things through a prism. Humbling indeed. We are no less important or better then anything else on this wild, beautiful ride. :)
