I have spent so much time thinking about angels….but, second to that, I’ve thought about perceptions….of angels and other things. I can’t fathom how some can’t see past the ephemeral bits of what surrounds them….or even the notion of ones own mortality….to see the everlasting and what is truly ‘forever’. We are all caught up in an endless conversation about our desires, our needs and our hopes. These, alone, are intangible and yet we are constantly rooted in our own longing.
If indeed I sit on the point of a circle… if every other being I have encountered in this ‘silly’ lifetime is also seated on that circle somewhere …if from the sky, a beautiful feather falls from a bird…perhaps an eagle and flutters its way to the precise center of that circle… then…we will see that feather from an angle, our own angle. Our perception of that feather can not be right or wrong…it can only BE. We see that natural form through our own eyes….
If then, a concept such as politics or spirituality falls from the deep blue sky above….and then, settles itself into the center of the circle; is it not the same as the feather? Are we not able to see the concept that reveals itself to us from our own point on the circle, however different that perception from our neighbour’s?
I’m rambling….sigh…..but tonight I am thinking about the angles of angels!
