Ok, sorry, the WOW thing threw me, because, well i DID play it, and yes, I was an elf in the game, but that's just it, it was a game.
I suppose it's hard to explain how i feel ONE with nature. What it is, basically, simplified, I wake up, say good morning to my cats, look outside
my window, see the trees, and feel like I can commune with them. Sounds crazy, doesnt it? They are a living, breathing creature. They are alive. And I
can feel that, and feel a "part" of them. No, they dont TALK to me, but I can feel them. I feel them in my spirit, my soul...
Had to jump in and mention this, as it pertains to what you wrote there...
Deeply, I think in terms along those lines. Are you feeling alone? Then go outside and stand under a tree... Know that you are a part of it, and it
is a part of you. It's simple to do..
Just realize that as you breathe out the carbon dioxide, the tree is breathing it in, and exhaling oxygen, that you breathe in. It is sharing its
very breath with you, and you it.
As you stand under it, maybe on a hot afternoon with the sun shining down... you know that that tree is giving of itself for you, to be protected for
a while from the rays of the sun, while you share breaths with one another. Feel that connection and open your heart and mind to it, and you'll be
amazed at how much you expand.
Do you feel unimportant? Go stand outside at night sometime. Take a look at a star. Let's suppose that star is 1000 light years away. The light
that comes to you in that very spot has traveled for 1000 years to reach you.
A star burns its life away, using its very essence to give off its heat and light. And, as science has taught us, light is simply photons, particles,
When you stand out there and see that star, realize, recognize, that star gave of its life to send its light out, and those particles of light have
traveled for 1000 years to reach you, standing there in that very spot. And you have now a part of that star in you. Think of it! Imagine it and
open your mind to that thought, a star is now a part of you!
Still feel unimportant? Still feel like you're not a part of something grand?
Just a couple of thoughts to share with you, and whoever else wishes to take from them, since you spoke similarly.
Love to you, all of you, and don't ever feel like no one cares for you, reader of these words. I wrote them with you in mind
EDIT: Wanted to add that I'm not religious in any way... not wiccan, christian, buddhist, you name it. I feel that every religion has some truth,
and some wrongs, and that overall, it's your spirituality which is important, not dogma. God, creator, source, allah, krishna, whatever you may hold
as being the end all and be all importance, we are all children together, holding hands and walking on the same road.
And, just as all groups of children have, there are bullies, and there are those who like to pull hair and put frogs down the girl's shirts.
There's one in every crowd. And, just as with all groups of children, you're going to get a lot of views on what life is all about.
Some children are bright and full of love and light and just as happy in the mud puddle making pies as they are sitting at home with a good book.
Some children are frightened of the dark and see monsters at every turn.
The point is to realize that we ARE ALL CHILDREN, them, me and you, and all learning in the school of life.
The bell's ringing and we're late for class! Don't want to get detention for being late again!
