He was so filled with love and joy that he couldn’t contain himself. He understood the principles of energy and he knew that things survived when there was a healthy flow of energy to and from them. Trindar (pronounced trin-dar) enjoyed this feeling of energy flowing from him to the things around him. There was nothing that he appreciated more in the world than assisting in the ‘thrival‘ of the things around him.
Whenever he would walk through nature, he would be sure to have his own energy overflow out into the life around him. He knew that it was important not to give away his own energy and leave himself empty, but to fill himself and let it overflow into those around. No matter the season, no matter the time, no matter the place, the easiest way for him to be filled up with energy was to connect. When he connected with ‘all-that-is,’ he always felt a surge of energy where it was like any depletion that he had was restored – instantly – and then there would be an overflowing.
An outpouring of joy from his heart. An outpouring of love from his soul. A sense of gratitude for all things. An appreciation of the intricate and beautiful ways of nature. A sense of peace in his mind. It was a feeling like no other. It was almost as if when these instances happened for Trindar, the world was, in a word, perfect.
Trindar remembered times when this used to be the exception rather than the norm. He was young and didn’t understand the value of what he was dabbling in. He had the experience of this unification of sorts and did his best to effort his way into feeling it again. It seemed the more he efforted, the farther from the experience he was. He couldn’t understand. As he aged, he understood where his naïvety led him astray in thinking that there must be something that he had to do in order to enjoy the splendor of that kind of experience again. Trindar remembered laughing when it finally came to him.
He laughed when he realized that efforting to do something, of course, only takes you farther from the experience. The experience he was trying to have was one of non-action. His mind needn’t work up ways for him to act. Rather, his mind needed quieting such that he would be able to hear his soul beneath the chatter. His mind was always working, 10000 thoughts a second – or so it seemed. It wasn’t until he was able to slowly and methodically ween his way off of thinking so much at one time that it happened to him.
All at once, his thought seemed to cease and he was filled with a most awesome power of love. From his head to his toes, he felt warm and peaceful. It was more than relaxation, but that was part of it. Everything in his body seemed to be saying that his experience was welcomed. It was as if his body had been waiting to experience this feeling again ever since it had its first taste when he was younger. When this happened, Trindar knew efforting was the last of the things he needed to do to experience this. He realized that efforting was the one thing preventing him from experiencing this.
As Trindar walked along this fine day, he allowed the overflowing love and peace exude from his heart and his body to the things around him. He was intentional in his not only giving love, peace, and joy to the trees, the leaves, and the wind, but also to the Earth and the sky. Often times he felt that people often overlooked, or maybe more accurately, under-looked, the sky and the Earth. In Trindar’s perception, it felt as if people only observed the things that were in front of them. More often than not, this included the trees and the leaves and other things like that in people’s visual field.
Trindar felt that it was important to intentionally identify, with his eyes, that he was sending energy to the sky and the Earth. He would thank the Earth for holding his feet and his body. He would thank the Earth for making it so wonderful for him to walk on the ground and feel a connection to ‘all-that-is.’ He would thank the sky for allowing him to see the beautiful blues, pinks, and yellows from the sunrises and sunsets. He would thank the sky for being the ‘silence’ that cut the ‘music’ of beautiful objects to gaze upon like the trees. Trindar was grateful and he knew it was important to share.
