Today I stopped into the local UPS mail center, one I had not visited before. Standing on line was a man with what appeared to be a small creature perched snugly on his shoulder. I was very drawn to him because it’s not something you see every day. I didn’t want to stare, so I looked briefly and then looked down at the envelope I was addressing. Within seconds the man looked over at me and said, “Yes, it’s a monkey.” I was so happy he initiated the conversation. This tiny creature was captivating.
There was a distinct communication occurring between the pet and its owner. The man would look at the monkey, whose name was “Peanut” and just talk to her in casual conversation, and Peanut would respond in peeps and other cute sounds. Apparently she has been a part of his life for 11 years, and he explained that she was a Marmoset, an endangered species from the Amazon.
I marveled at the connection that Peanut and the man shared. It seemed deep and spiritual. It opened up my heart and took me to a place within myself that resonates with that kind of connection. It was simple, sacred and instinctual. The pet and the man were part of each other. There seemed to be a shared love and respect that went beyond the conditioned human-to-human type of love.
I left feeling more connected to myself, and found myself practically skipping to my car.
And it’s interesting because I went to the UPS Store to mail something to someone I shared a past with, and in that letter was what amounted to a message that I was now moving on and could no longer connect with them and that world anymore. I didn’t need to say it in so many words, but the message was clear. It took several days to get the courage to do it, but it was so much easier after talking to someone who is also a Master. She helped me to see that by doing this, I also gift them. They then have the opportunity to move on, or to do whatever it is they need to do or feel. That it’s something they need to hear. What made it especially difficult is that the recipient of the letter is a family member, actually extended family. And there may have been some karma there that needed to be released.
So there was a feeling of relief and lightheartedness as I left the store. I felt that I was being true to myself, and there could be no greater gift in the universe to everyone else.
