Concentric Circles


Everything in life is in concentric circles.

Always coming back around to wherever they began and yet different.

Picking up dirt and organisms along the way, the ripple on the surface of life’s lake extends outwards from the tiniest drop of water until it reaches the edge, then that edge reverberates back until that circle encloses once again.

That is what it is to experience life

You reach out to the edge of what you can, that edge responds, and you gain back the energy you exhausted in order to reach out and *feel* what it is to be alive.

Everything in life is in concentric circles.

Nothing is flat. Nothing is a straight line. A straight path.

Everything weaves and bobs with curves. Circles overlap with one another, creating geometric patterns of intense complexity to the point where it appears that a circle no longer exists. We walk along the edges of these circles in a giant net of life, sending out our vibrations and feeling the vibrations of others.

What we send out affects others and reflects back to us. What we will to happen eventually reflects back to us when that energy reaches the edge, whatever that edge may be.

There are many edges in life. The edge of your limits that you are ever pushing. The edge of a boundary between you and another. The edge of where society tries to put a box where none should exist.

These various edges create obstacles in the world of circles we find ourselves traversing along. We might be on one circle and have to change to another because of a sudden edge, it wasn’t meant to be, not right now. But eventually all the paths link up and you will find yourself where you were originally meant to go.

Circles are reverent. They are what the moon creates twice a month. one invisible, another full of giving light. These two circles wax and wane and create the tides of the worlds ocean quite literally.

The circles of life do the same thing. We are all in phases. We are all natural and organic. We are all points where the universe concentrated it’s energy so greatly and packed it down so intensely that it created a living, moving, feeling, and breathing being capable of experiencing what the universe has to offer.

Everything is in concentric circles. Everything eventually ends up where it needs to go. The path is not straight and you are never truly lost.

This is a lesson we must all learn.
