In one hour and a few minutes, I will have entered a new year of my existence. Each year that passes by, I am still amazed at how fast it travels by and how many lessons I am still learning about life and the people who live within it. I still have questions, still get thrown off track, and most of all, I still want to be an even better man.
It seems that people never really mature, they just rework their consciousness in direct proportion to what is most important to them. In other words, we do better, get better, and concentrate better on what actually soothes our souls. The rub is that most people will never know what its like to consistently do what they love to do for an extended amount of time and actually get used to it.
Remember when you were young and you looked at an adult and you thought to yourself, " Man, that guy is so old looking." Now you look at people and you say, "Those kids look so young!" Life does change and so does your perspec…
Sometimes in life you just wish people would do better. However, the version of better that you wish they would do is inevitably your version of better. This will usually not work because you are not them. So I say to myself, " Isn't it just obvious that such and such is not being carried out properly?" I once again have to admit that the statement is also not exactly true. This is a lead in to my story.
Once again on the train I observed an action that gave me pause. I was sitting on a relatively empty train. I watched people as I always do. The information that is available on one train ride is just so plentiful that it rocks my soul. There was a man sitting to my immediate right across from me. The doors opened at the next stop and he released a bottle around the door from a seated position that landed under the train and smashed into bits and pieces. He literally let it fall in between the area between the platform and the train.
Well NYC is just a thick coil of energy and I would be surprised to meet anyone who feels differently about that. One of the centers in the city that always delivers is Union Square. As I walked through yesterday on my way to the train I was smacked by the energy of two different people and they both brought the magic in record time. I had to stop and connect with each one of them separately. I acted from my soul because it called me to do so. It felt so great and I did not feel the time go by during these two interactions.
The first person that I connected with was a young man named Aaron. He was rolling around on these roller blade like wheels. I found out shortly after that they are called Free Line Skates .The fascinating part was that there were two wheels under each foot, however, they were separately working on their own. I have included a picture above so that you can understand what I am saying. These skates have flat surfaces on the top and that is where you place yo…
