Nice point, Nery: We are all like the kings and queens of past eras (minus having subjects to rule over)!
“Harmonious trio”– love that!
Thanks for your nice comment, Ed. So interesting that you mention Daskalos, who also happens to be from my country, Cyprus! Glad to learn that you are already meditating on some of these ideas in your daily practice as a Christian. Most of the points I am making are actually common sense, but we rarely think about them, because we are busy creating more needs, oblivious to the fact that we already have what we had desired a few years ago.
Thanks Tanylisaa! What an amazing quote! Wish I had known it; I would have included it somehow in the essay. I took a note of it and will use it when I re-edit the essay again in the future.
What you say, Drew, lies at the heart of the experience: ‘one must be alert and somewhat active in the process by simply participating in the opportunity.’ This is synonymous with being open to surprise and to being ready to adapt one’s behavior to what is given in the present moment. And yes, you are also right on spot emphasizing that in many such instances the magic of synchronicities work through our interactions with other humans.
