I went on a bike ride through suburbia. 28 degrees (83), clear, and sunny.
While on my ride I had my iPod in listening to some jams. Enjoying the tunes, soaking in the nice weather, on Sunday of a long weekend.
Then, a thought rushed in from the ether:
There’s nothing here. The paved driveways, nicely cut grass, properly kept gardens, and not a lot of people, but a lot of cars – there’s nothing to them. They’re empty.
I don’t remember feeling any negativity while having this quick thought (or message, not to sound to hokey pokey). There didn’t seem to be any judgment attached to the thought at all.
I didn’t dislike any of the people I saw out and about tending to their homes. It was like I was looking at it all as objectivley as I could.
Another thought hit me soon after:
I don’t want any of this.
I tried picturing myself doing all of that: cutting the grass, paving driveways, washing cars, planting gardens, etc. It has nothing to do with the hard work itself, but the reasons behind them.
Currently, in my gut, I felt like this isn’t something I want anytime soon – the home, the kids, the lawn, dog – none of it.
I’m going with my gut.
Go outside. Go for a bike ride. A walk. Or just sit down somewhere on the grass.
Maybe a powerful thought, or message, will come out of the ether and reveal something to you about yourself. At least something about you, in that moment. It might mean something to you.
It meant enough to me to write this post and share it with you.
I’m glad some things are a bit clearer to me now.
28 degrees (83), clear, and sunny.
PS – Maybe some influence might help with your revelation heh.
