“I believe the universe is sort of like an unimaginably vast musical instrument with an infinite number of strings. And every human being, every living thing, is a string on that instrument. The decisions each of us makes and the acts that he commits are like vibrations passing through a guitar string.”
That quote from Detective Vanadium in the book I’m currently re-reading by Dean Koontz, reveals a truth I think most of us can agree on. That we are all connected and belong to the same family. That what I do will somehow affect some unknown other and vice versa. As writers who seek publication and the sharing of our stories, we are intentional in our reaching out to unknown others. Even so, I am a firm believer that there are no chance meetings. I believe that as we move through life, we meet who we need to meet. We read lines that we need to read in order that we might understand or have revealed to us some deeper truth. I often re-read books that I have fallen in love with and am amazed at the new revelations I receive and the new insights I gain.
Methinks I take my book reading a bit too seriously. *shrugs* Yep. I guess I do.
Since the universe is intentional with us, perhaps we should be intentional with one another as well. Know and understand that what you say and do has a rippling affect that, once started, cannot be undone.
On another note, I am reading over the “Ten Questions, Ten Answers” interview for next week and reading the next author’s answers touched me on a level that I hadn’t expected. Her words were inspiring for me, and I hope they will be for you as well. Jocie McKade will be my next featured author. Her profile will go up on the “Ten Questions” page Wednesday and I’ll move the current author, Alretha Thomas to the main blog page. These authors provide such wonderful feedback that I didn’t simply want to get rid of their profiles once they have been featured. So, they will be featured on the “Ten Questions” page and then moved to the main blog archive.
Happy writing and reading peeps! And remember, live and speak intentionally.
Peace & Love,
