Profoundness and glimpses

Being a teacher gives me the opportunity to take serious time to reflect on life. My job is supremely challenging, rewarding, and humbling. It gives me the opportunity to have insight on the changes of adolescence, which is the most vital intellectual, emotional, and social time in one's life. That being said, that is not what this post is about. I also get time off; that is not a swipe at anyone and my tongue is not out. Just wait and see.

I believe that is a power greater than us, or parallel to us; something unseen or maybe right underneath our noses ready for us to see. Paradigm shifts have occured at various times throughout history; big ones are rare--the earth is round, it revolves around the sun, the germ theory, certain physics theories, etc...Many small paradigm shifts happen daily; societal and personal. Our minds shift as to how the normal world works. What is that next great aha moment?

I feel as though there are hints as to the next great piece of knowledge all around us. People says things non-chalantly that I've caught lately that make me think that our dimension is rubbing up against another one ready to reveal the next secret.

This sounds crazy, but I beleive that a higher intuition is the next stage in human development; an unspoken communication. I think we get glimpses of this communication from time to time; almost like flashes of lightning.

A storm is brewing and getting closer--sshhhhh, listen.

I've been staying far away from anything intellectual for a few weeks now. Holding any kind of rational or progressive thought at bay; it's like I'm waiting for the right moment. As these words flow I had no intention of writing them as I casually decided to write a post.

Life seems to be like a comet sometimes, circling the universe, leaving a trail of dust and ice. Observing from afar what no one else can see. It zips along at an incomprehensible speed, following a perfect path.

Sometimes I feel as though life is flying by just as fast, but thats the way it is supposed to be. My cliched drink in the moment quote is relevant here. What is important here? Now? What feeds the heart, brain, and soul?

As humans, we are just a dew drop of time, yet we imagine our lives as so much more, as we should. But the thoughts, emotions, relationships must mean something. When I look into my wife's loving eyes, or my childrens' adoring ones I see the meaning. Thats it. Its the connection to others.
