Interconnectedness - You are exactly where you are supposed to be right now

Hey! Let me share with you the last story that I made up!!

A young woman was living the most “normal” life possible (according to what she knew and to what the mass thinks). Going straight forward, head down, for what has always been taught to her. Being the exact person they all have told her how to be. Until the day she came back from a travel with her family, after which she decided to change it all... She left everything behind. She took raw food classes and quit smoking. Not even noticing all the subtle changes that it brought in her mind, she once called out loud, to some divine energy, for something to happen, so to bring her to turn her head and see something else that would bring a big shift in her life. BAM! Music. Music has been her answer. The Mrazy kind. Interested, intrigued, she dug what was behind it. Superforest became her morning happy news reading, Café Gratitude a target of what she wanted to do for a living, Blend Apparel her favorite messages to wear, and so on and on. There is a complete other world this side. Nothing but yummy happy hilarious vibes.

It only is just a question of perspective. To see things from another point of view. 

The young woman opened up. She ripped off her little cocoon and stuck her head out. Hope and love for the entire universe and for every single person is the only thing she could see from this new point of view. 

The scared and cocoon person that she always used to be surprisingly decided to take a quick 12-days trip, ALONE, to Hawaii, in a country she didn’t know much of, to meet people she didn’t really knew of. She strangely and so strongly connected with those peeps, but more especially with 3 people, more than anybody else on this planet (but her brothers by blood, of course). Among 6.995 billions of people, these 3 people became the ones she now likes to call her family by soul.

After returning in her country, and changing a few more things in her way of living and being, she felt safe, but she was still half scared of the world “out there” and definitely terrified of presenting herself simply the way she is. Finding the guts to put that aside, she took another trip on. To California this time. She was supposed to be there for two weeks, and she ended up cancelling her flight back and meeting tons of interesting and nice “strangers”. Among them, she especially connects with one man. One, among thousands of them. After being around him for a little while and living a couple of days at his place, she discovers the most mind-blowing/unwrappable-thing-around-her-head. These peeps are friends! Huh!? What?!

Okay, hold on here… What, in the world, were the chances that:

1- This last (American) man went, 4 years ago, in a gathering in Mexico, and met this (American) woman (who now lives in Hawaii), with whom he connected.

2- And that this so scared young woman from Quebec, Canada decided to take two trips (with an interval of a year and a half), to two different places, and ended up to meet –and so especially connect with- these two exact peeps, one in each place she traveled to.

Tell me!! WHAT were the chances?!? The young woman is definitely still trying to wrap her head around it… 3 weeks after the discovery. :D

Now, you know what? This story is… of course, you got it: mine!! It’s MINE! Yes! :) W.O.W Doesn’t it make you feel like totally excited to know the second tome? What’s coming next?! Wow, I just can’t wait to discover, myself! I am so excited for my life!! :)

Ohh… wait, there is a postface to this first tome though…
You know the funniest part that I just learned? Roughly about a year and a half ago, she (my Hawaiian friend) sent him (my new Californian friend) an email to thank him for something he gave her at this gathering and which had changed something in her life. A year and a half ago. Think about it for a second. Where was I at that time? In Hawaii!! Was I standing just beside her when she sent out this message to him?! Ohhh, dears….! Will I ever be able to wrap my head around this whole craziest yummy story?!?

Yep! This is 2012, my friends! Everything is coming together! You’ll experience interconnectedness like never before, be assured of that. Be attentive! Fully live it! And… HAVE FUN!! Enjoy the roller coaster ride, and laugh along with the Universe! ;)

I definitely am.


Keep in mind that your life is happening NOW. And from there, have the greatest time of your life!

Be here now

Since the beginning of my trip, I’ve been writing to you a bit, here and there, in a book, with the intention to type it later during one of those rare moments I’m having access to an internet connection. My first entry for you in my book was on the very first day of my trip: on the plane. Since that day, everything has been uncertain, unpredictable. A roller coaster of emotions and of experiences. Today, I realize that I’ve changed so much… And today, I am thinking that this is why I lost that book, and that I am now unable to share those entries with you… Three months and a half passed by since I jumped in that plane to California. Three months and a half. WOW. One can go through so many things in such a short period of time in his life time! Come and go, and come back again in a position/state of mind/believes. It can go on and on like this many more times. And one can also rather let it all go at the end.
Life -and the human mind, certainly!- is so surprising, interesting, mind blowing.

When I moved in Sutton, I felt such a relief at first. I felt like I could totally expend my whole being and soul there. I made tons of wonderful friends, I was totally supported by an entire community of good living beings, and I was surrounded by nothing but nature. What a dream, right? But it didn’t take so long that I started to sink in some sort of lethargy… I was feeling lonelier than ever… A spark of something was missing. “No place like home is where thy heart is” and my heart was somewhere else than in the space and time where I was. That’s what was happening to me. I finally lost of my job due to the global economical situation, and there is no need really to tell you that it made my situation worst. I was wandering in vain… I decided to leave the country. My community has some friends and members in California. I decided to visit them. From there, it happened that I met even more other people. And I stayed here and there. In standard houses in town, and in tents or domes in some sustainable communities in the far far woods. Where ever I could, and whatever I could afford for. Sleeping in a tent in high mountains during the winter, you get to know people more than normally. In basic survival instinct, human being opens up radically.

After a few roller coaster rides, I started to feel really tired. Tired of fighting so hard and of kicking out like a horse held against its will, because I couldn't find myself doing what I really wanted to do, not being able to go where I thought my heart was. I was thinking that if was not able to make my way to there again, I would forever be wandering. But all that time, everything had always been perfect. JUST PERFECT. The barriers were there for very good reasons. One can be blinded for wanting something so bad and for being so stubborn. My heart has always been wherever I was... since it’s within me. Okay, maybe I needed to live some big experiences, and perhaps this was the way that my Self has found to help me to make the scary move of going out there and reach for something else. Yes, most probably.

A phone call from Hawaii one night made me see that there was no need for fighting and that I was exactly where I was supposed to be. Suddenly, everything was coming together. What a relief. A sudden peace gained my whole being. I could trust again. And just BE. I could simply savor everything that is there. What a great feeling that is! Right away, I started to reconnect with my Self. I was excited for my life again!! Light was all around.

Ever since, opportunities keep being offered to me. I made my way to the San Francisco bay area. I ate twice in some Café Gratitude. I started to practice Kundalini yoga, and am experiencing and learning some very interesting ways of how the human being’s brain functions. SO POWERFUL. And say that I thought that my healing process, my finding of Happiness could only be possible somewhere else than right here right now…! HA! I ended up to expend my community by 10. And I am leaving in 3 weeks for Costa Rica, on a permaculture community! What about that?! ;) Allow everything to happen, and trust life fully, and see where it’s gonna bring you! :)
Here's for you. One of my favorite singers, who I saw on stage for the very first time here in Cali, on the great day of 11/11/11!! It was amazing!

You don’t have to be this, You don’t have to be that, now. Just
BE, for eternity.
You don’t have to do this, You don’t have to do that, now. Just DO whatever happens to be.
You don’t have to think this, You don’t have to think that, now. Don’t think, but DO IT COUNSCIOUSLY.
You don’t have to love this, You don’t have to love that, now. Just LOVE, for eternity.
