Rant # 2

As promised I am now off and running on our new adventure. Today I want to expand on one of my favorite subjects: the concept of connectivity.
Our brains are very tricky. The brain gets used to controlling everything, our breathing, our heart beat, our sense of touch. Well, all of our bodily functions are dependent on the unconscious workings of our brains. We get used to that dependence. But somehow, in that dependence, we disconnect from our spirit. Soul, if you like.
The spirit is the essential core of our true selves. Spirit is where love resides. It is what connects us with every living thing in the universe. And I believe that love is what connects us if we allow it.
The mind wants to shut that connection off sometimes. What if I get hurt? What if my love is rejected? That list could go on, as everyone knows. But the truth is that none of that crap really matters. It is the connection through love energy that is what matters. Expectations of a return of that energy are counter-productive. What you give WILL come back to you. Just not always in the way you expected.
Love is at the center of every positive thing that comes our way. If the brain disconnects from the spirit, we lose the greatest gift from our very center. That center is love and that is what connects to the energy most of us call God.
Let go of fear. That is a brain product. Embrace love. Share it freely with everyone you meet. I guarantee that the return on that surrender is incredible!
I want everyone to know that in no way do I mean to preach. I am sharing my thoughts. Simple as that.
See ya tomorrow. Who knows what will be on my mind then.


  1. I Completely agree with you Bill! Sometimes it's hard to give & expand that love to others/situations where that energy is not returned. but as you said, it will always be returned in some fashion --- and often from sources you never expected. It makes life one big experiment of love (and happy surprises)!

    You are a natural with blogging and I know you will find a lot of support within the blogging community. Keep up the good work!

  2. WOW!!! You have such a handle on what is most important in living a great life Bill! I know exactly what you mean...I know when my soul is happy, so am I! I just need to figure out how to make that happen a lot more often.
    I'm a very generous person and never expect anything in return and that's pretty much what I get. But I don't care...

    I firmly believe that your blogs will be helpful to many people!

  3. Well, Bill, I decided to just settle in and start from the beginning and read all your blogs. :-) I love that you have your priorities in order and are sharing with the world.
