If we are stardust, then doesn't that mean that we're all connected? If that's the case, why are we isolated inside these singular vessels we call our bodies? Why do we live in isolation, only to connect when we truly "attach" to others through friendships, associations and relationships?
Right now, Mark is traveling, and my sole companions are my furbabies. But, when they are sleeping or playing outside, I feel this introspective isolation. And, it can be lonely. I think that's why I fill my head with stories - all kinds of stories - most of them beyond the realm of reality... ones that focus on beings that live for eternities and are heavily connected spiritually, mentally and through blood. That doesn't mean that I wish I were a vampire, but I love writing about them because they break all the rules of reality, except in the very end, when they, too, become stardust.
I think the relationships in our lives are so important because we tuly do want to be connected... to get back to being mingled with and connected to the stardust from which we came.
I hope I'm not freaking you out with morbid thoughts. They aren't meant to be dark thoughts. I mean, isn't it comforting to know that we are all really connected? Unfortunately, our human existence doesn't allow most of us to not feel isolated from others. We are the only ones living inside our heads. That's why relationships matter so much.
Take the time to take care of them, grow and nurture them and give them your all when you can. Never be afraid to tell people you love them and show them, through your actions, how important they are to you. If you don't, they may have returned to stardust before you can.
