All my life I have always dreamed about my secret hiding place ( that I would create one day) where I could escape the stresses, strains, and plaguing problems of ordinary life.
When I came across the title photo by accident yesterday… I wanted to scream with joy… it WAS the secret happy place ( or as close to as humanly possible) that I would ever visibly see … it was my perfect ” utopian” escape!
When we get glimpses into our personal parallel lives… we feel it before we see it…that deja vu feeling… that there is another me inside this one… a freer, more unrestrained ” being” longing for that ” Neverland” … open to all our wildest dreams and fantasies!
In order to keep returning to ” Neverland” we have to have maintained that child within us who was open to wonder and curiosity… the child who set no barriers or restrictions on the imagination dwelling within.
In our parallel life… we are not hindered by such mundane restrictions as chronological age, financial or societal tiers, gender, physical, mental, or emotional abilities or even interests and passions. We are simply ” beings” who are wide-open to life and the next opportunity hiding around the bend.
If you need a starting point to enter your parallel life… revisit some of your childhood dreams that turned into adult fantasy/reality locations- -for me… it is miles and miles of flowering fields.
What a fun afternoon and I didn’t even have to leave my recliner… no tickets or passports or immunizations or waiting lines… your parallel life is always there for you.
Saturday night Tommy texted me and said Pip had been staring at him for twenty minutes non-stop… didn’t want anything -just wanted to stare at him… Tommy looked it up and discovered a heart-warming explanation.
So until tomorrow… Take time to leave home and travel through your imagination… stimulate your creativity… and envelope the universal ” being” of being alive!
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
Add warmth… and turn a cold, rainy day into a cozy relaxing one!
