IN THE MIDST OF THE CROWD, YOU CAN BE ALONE, IN THE MIDST OF THE ALONE, YOU CAN FILL ALL ONE.
It’s an interesting balance, the idea of the alone. And the all one.
Milling in crowds, in the journey of the tribe, the concept of the connected and the disconnected, it’s a balance to the nature of the reach. What is the reach — out; and what to the reach — back? That reflectivity is part of the marvel — in the being, alone, and the being — all one.
That notion of connection, the fulfillment of potential — the inter-reaching of one to many — I savor the balance between being in the alone time, and being in the crowd time.
Contemplating ideas, directions, possibilities, I find myself in the silent (dreaming day) meditation, that could be one mind in the mix of the clouds of others, or it could be in the mixture of a small group — one mind, solo — and sharing and interlacing with others.
That savor lies in the mix between the one and the many, single multitude — the grace of the throng and the moment (and momentum) of quietude — the aloneness of the singled mind.
There are things to be discovered in the moment that you are alone. That, perhaps, could be the sharing in the cloud mind of others — the mist, drifts, in the consciousness of gathering. And sharing.
