As the poet Rumi said; "Wisdom is like the rain. It source is limitless, but it comes down according to the season". Yes, I agree with that!

As the seasons change, so does the wisdom. I am realizing that I am part of the wisdom that has been identified through all thoughts and actions recorded in time. But the world as I perceive it, is a different place than described by other minds through the centuries. Different but the same, in significance. Everything is Significant. Whether it be a world event or the utensils in a drawer, each can connect or disconnect me to the awareness of who I am. My perception of events, creates my experience of them. All wisdom is within me, to create my life as I believe it. Yep, I came equipped with all the wisdom,(we all did) to create an experience of remembering.

In the process of remembering I go through a tunnel of time, with portraits of people, events and all types of gifts; wisdom, talent and strength, to name a few, hanging on the wall. it is my choice to pick who and what I want to experience. What wisdom do I want to be? What souls do I want to go through the tunnel with? What gifts do I want to share? How strong shall I be? Each step is significant in the tunnel, and I am always able to change my direction. I can move forward, backward, up, down and side to side. I can also move around and out of the tunnel, if I choose. For me, that's wisdom I just started to remember.

My thoughts kept me in a place that had definite restrictions. I could only function in a certain manner, because that's what wisdom said 50 years ago. My humanity was a hindrance to being whole. Part of my wisdom was tossed aside because it was insignificant at some point, in my tunnel. I was only looking at the right side of the tunnel; the left side, the top, the bottom and the walls outside of the tunnel were insignificant. I was functioning according to someone else's wisdom, not mine.

Of course the good news is, like the weather, I can change my wisdom, I can catch up with myself (my consciousness) in the tunnel. There is no right or wrong path to remembering, I'll get there at some point and it will be very significant. We all travel through our tunnel at our own pace, some of us deeper in the tunnel than others. The beauty of out tunnels is we can always remember when we want to and be the significant wisdom of everything, enjoying ourselves with our source.
