Unplugged

cords and connections

I don’t know about you, but its frustrating when a tangle of cords gets in my way, and only when something goes seriously awry do I crawl under my desk and begin the task of disentanglement, attempting to figure out what’s gone wrong.

Yesterday, however, someone in the neighbourhood accidentally severed a cable and left me, and an untold number of others, without an Internet connection for more than 8 hours. While the impact on a large business that relies on this connection might have been significant, my loss was limited to missing two scheduled conference calls. The problem and the lesson were found in the fact that I use web-mail and the relevant connecting information was in an email. Unable to retrieve it meant that even going old school was impossible because without the phone number I couldn’t call or send an SMS. Even though ‘present’, conditions beyond my control prevented me from keeping a promise, and two friends experienced my not being available after I said I would be.

Everything is Interconnected. Every relationship is dependent upon a series of inner and inter-connections. What we too often forget is that our ability to connect with another is depends upon our willingness to make sure that we’ve established a link between our inner realities, honouring every piece of self, body, heart, mind and spirit. The cut cable was an opportunity to embrace the silence. Emerging from that meditative space, my spirit began to whisper a flurry of questions, remembering experiences,yes, shocks, when I managed to convince myself that plugging into an energy that I’m not wired for was a good idea. To understand what I’m talking about, simply imagine a 2-year old toddling towards a light socket’ with a fork in hand saying “What’s that?”

Knowing I’m not terminally unique, here are a few of the questions my spirit put to my brain and heart:

  • Why do you suffer an ‘inpowerment’ failure when there’s an external cause beyond your control that short circuits your communication with someone you love?
  • “How often do you offer an excuse to account for your absence?”
  • “What goes on inside of you when someone doesn’t do what they’ve said they’re going to do?”
  • “Do you believe the best or assume the worst?”
  • “How often do you offer a compromise when you’ve broken a promise?”
  • “How did you feel when someone shattered a vow?”
  • “When happens to your inner world when you’re speaking and someone interrupts and rudely cuts you off?”
  • “What happens in your body and heart when your head says someone’s blown you off or is shining you on?”

Make it a great day and remember that fun is the first part of ‘fundamental’ when you consciously connect your inner realities and make sure there’s time and space for your body, heart, mind and spirit to cooperate and participate wholly and fully in love.

    They make special devices that you can find at Walmart that actually organize your cords for you. They’re super simple to use!!

      Hi ‘TheCatssMeoww’! Your comment made me smile for many reasons! First, I don’t live in a world where there’s such a thing as Walmart :); and second, I appreciate the wisdom and know they exist. I almost bought one last week but somehow a curly piece of black or purple plastic was more objectionable than what ‘is’ and I’m forever moving my desk, unplugging my laptop from my large monitors and taking it to another room for a change of scenery!
