self consciousness

Carpe Diem Namasté The Spiritual Way #5 self consciousness

Oneness with everything.  Goodness that is an ideal that seems almost unattainable.  Then I think about the words 'self consciousness'.  I have most of my life been self conscious in a condemning way.  I'm:  fat, uncaring, mean, quick to anger, ugly and that crooked nose.  That is not the same as the first definition of conscious:  aware of and responding to one's surroundings; awake.   

To become aware and respond to all that stuff that is out there.  Within this awareness we could then be led to self awareness (the good kind) and become one with the universe.  One with all before and all that follows.  One with each person that reads this.  It feels so challenging until I realize one small thing, we share our humanity.  We have common experiences.  It hit me.  The naked dream.  What better place to start looking for our connections than when all is just right there.  No place to hid a thing.

bird songs
riding the fresh spring breeze
with the migrating geese

nakedly frolicking 
to bird songs
a gentle spring breeze
blending the souls of all
