Yesterday, Rising Hawk started a blog interaction about what his real physical image looks like verses what image is portrayed by his words. It was an interesting exercise. I posted an email directly to him as I often see him when I read his work. I see images of all the authors I follow. He replied that I described very accurately his spirit persona. Of course it was that image I see. That is who writes his blog. Spirit is who writes all the amazing blogs I read. I wish I could spend the day on my computer and read through every great blog on the site. I do enjoy every day going through the ones I constantly read. To me it is visiting friends, spending a day in class learning and growing with every stanza, picture and tale. I think what is shared in these blogs is more connecting and inspiring than going to church. They are a direct view into the souls of some pretty amazing people. What a blessing this place is.
I also have other social media accounts and thought about what they offer. I keep a LinkedIn account for professional use and that one even gets hits from people I do not know nor would want to. Facebook seems to be used by many as a place to air their vendettas or complain about the same thing all the time. I think I have become a social media snob. I do like the humor and videos and I like that I can connect with far away friends. But it is not the same as visiting with the authors I visit here. I see more than the words when I read. I visit with their souls.
Rising Hawk’s post got me thinking about what my spirit image looks like. Who is the me I am in spirit? I know I am a work in progress and have so much to learn. But after the post last night, I really struggled to figure out my spirit. What was the sense I have about what is inside, really deep? What is it that people sense about me? Who is the Light being that I am? The answer was not there.
