Currie's Gratitude 22 June 2012

Connect. Share. Listen. 
Ó2012 Currie Silver

Show Up & Make Contact.
Hear and See and Acknowledge.
Simply. Easily. Naturally.
With Your Whole BEing.

I’ve been noticing, in these months of riding the bus, walking a LOT more, and having interactions with “waves” of people, oftentimes in the briefest of seconds, how little connection there is BEtween humans. Whether it is BEcause of BEing in our own vehicles, listening to our own little headphones, and NOT needing to truly Connect one-to-one to “connect” with others OR BEcause we’ve simply forgotten that humans [and other BEings] DO share this planet with us, we’ve seemed to collectively set aside Connection. Left it by the side of the roads we Now travel connected virtually, wirelessly, and constantly.

How simple it is, sharing a smile, a nod, a hello or good morning, even a thank you. And yet, so few are those who DO. Who take that time. LIVE. Face-to-face. Now. Fewer still, I think, who REALLY understand that sharing and with it connecting are BEcoming nearly extinct.

Listen. Take a moment Today, and LISTEN. To the wind. To a bird’s song. To the place that is BEyond the eyes and face of another, to their unique and BEautimous Spirit. Like the little boy I met on the bus yesterday…

I love you, Currie
