I have this nudge to share the following which has been unfolding in my mind.
In a recent post I shared my feeling of inability, unwillingness to accept needs unmet for loved ones, for brothers and sisters in need. The umph, the conviction I felt was backed by a memory, an experience I’ve had. There was a time when during a very long flight, I felt affected in a claustrophobic way. Another part of me was conscious of my need for peace and I exclaimed, with absolute conviction, that I would never fly again. A friend who I travelled with, heard me and added, tentatively, “unless you go in first class?” I consented. And so it has been. And it has been so without my making it so, which is, for me, the most wonderful part. It simply has been given to me. To further make the point clear, it was during that same flight, during a stop, that my friend and I were moved to first class.
What I’m getting is that my conviction was absolute. Here is what Raj posted in “Threshold Living” on September 28.
“The spell needs to be broken! That is the legitimate need. Which means that the Fulfillment of that need, which is inseparable from the need, is equal to it! Are you watching to see the further and further evidence of inequity, or are you expecting undeserved Equity, because that’s the only kind there is?
If you are not spellbound, you will naturally let your presence of Mind be as large as the Fulfillment which is inseparable from the need, and without introducing doubt, fear, blame, judgment or guilt, the indivisibility of “need” and “need met” will be experienced, and balance will reappear.”
