At three in the morning I had the pleasure of taking my dog outside for some early morning duties and through the fog of sleep still resting on my eyes I looked up into the sky and noticed a bunch of shooting stars, one after the other, flying through the night sky. For some reason I watched as my dog looked up into the night sky also and I wondered if she got to witness the same phenomenon.
I took the position to believe that she did as she walked over to me as if to say "Did You See That". I patted her furry head and asked her the same question she silently asked me and with a paw she handed me, readily agreed it was quite something to see. I found myself in one of those amazing life moments when I realized that this memory will never leave my mind and the emotions felt throughout the scene will reach within my heart so strong that whenever I recall the memory it will be relived as if it had just happened.
We both sat on the cool damp grass and as she laid her head in my lap, I realized that no matter what happens in life and the people and pets who filter in and out of my life, the show goes on and I still require the center seating to embrace it all.
The galactic extravaganza that I witnessed put my view into quite a different perspective. My little human form cannot compete with the space that surrounds me on a daily basis which goes virtually unnoticed by the noise that spatially takes my focus away from the present moment. Perhaps it is the fact that age has gracefully allowed me to succumb to paying closer attention to the most incredible things. It doesn't matter how I became aware, the point is that I have become more aware and I don't want to miss anymore of the things that move my heart and make me realize how fortunate I am to actually be alive in this dimension of present time. As I sat in that cool morning air I began to clearly recognize how infinite time really is.
For most of my life I have had the gift of knowing that at some other time I have been on this plain of life before. I have been given the gift of knowing information ahead of time and the sense to pay attention to most of the information. Through my most impetuous times I will have to admit that chaos and focus strayed me from time to time but I always knew better but just had to find it out myself. Now it is more important than ever to readily embrace the information and listen carefully to what is being said inside my brain and connect the dots to the heart field. Running all my bases has landed me to a home base.
At my home base I can see the big life stage that will play out the next few acts that I get to star in during my seasonal autumn run. I can only hope that I will get a winter run also, as I have clearly stated that clause in my life's contract. I get top billing as long as I recite my lines cleverly and not wander off my marks. I don't think there will be any teleprompter to give me my cues of what to say or how to act. The only thing I am going to depend on is my brains hard drive that encompasses the huge amount of memories and realities that will create the dialogue that will deliver all the future lines that will garner me the life award for most awareness.
After some time and stillness, my pup and I got up and slowly walked back inside the house and as I shut the door, sheltering me from that vast open sky, I received the message loud and clear. The show does go on every second of everyday. Within the moments that you have taken to read this, stop and take a look at the show that you star in and ask yourself "Am I delivering the lines that have been written for me by someone else or am I reading the lines from the "Book Of ME". Just taking a few moments to ask that question has made you take a closer look at yourself if only for a brief time.
So now...begin to take the time to audition life in a new light and when you get your call back remember that there is a shooting star out there with your name attached ....so watch for it........it goes on forever illuminating your life!
