Friends

 

They didn’t see the world together. They didn’t accomplish anything at all. They just happened to find each other in a day like any, and without even saying a word things seemed to click.

There was no time involved in their relationship, so maybe it couldn’t even be called as such; just a brief moment in time where they happened to be at the same place.

It was one of those things that cannot be explained…they were there, occupying the same place, without any specific activity or conversation. They didn’t talk, they didn’t touch, they didn’t look at each other’s eyes. They were just standing there, at the same place, at the same time.

Then the feelings of the surroundings suddenly changed. Like an abrupt temperature fluctuation or the appearance of a warm breeze. They felt it; they noticed something different around them, involving them.

Although nothing seemed to change in the outside around them, a warm, peaceful feeling inside took home in them both. The senses of loneliness they have been holding for a long time suddenly disappear. The sadness that makes part of a grey life without any special motivation was nowhere to be found.

Only a feeling of peace and satisfaction became their essence…happiness!

A peaceful irradiation from each one…that was created from the peaceful irradiation that came from the other…that was generated by the peaceful irradiation from the first: Automated self feeding of a circular feeding…complete autonomy from the external world!

It lasted for just a couple of seconds. After the initial feeling and the realization they were perceiving each other, without self and mutual intention, they simply walked away and on to resume their daily lives.

Nothing really changed afterwards. The same routine, the same feelings and the same kind of grey life, except now they knew they were more than independent, isolated beings. Now they knew they weren’t alone because they felt the connection with another being, even if they never completed any sort of communication.

From that day they knew…someone, somewhere, is there…and they are not alone!

    Hi Kelvin,

    Yes, we do have these connections all the times, but I guess we are always in such a hurry with life in society, and also tend to see and seek the physical and quantifiable, that we simply disregard these natural connections with each other. Still, sometimes they happen with such intensity that we cannot ignore them…if we don’t confuse them with something else. By themselves, they are beautiful moments.

    Raul,

    This post was nicely written. You are so right about this type of connection. Not to get to woo-woo-woo on you, but I often think these connections are old souls who remember each other, if only for a few minutes.

    Whatever you believe, these are special “human” moments. I also agree that they don’t have signify “love” or something like that, but just a moment of “knowing” the other. And you are right that they remind us that we’re not alone.

    You did an excellent job of describing these connection moments in this post. I loved these lines,

    “Then the feelings of the surroundings suddenly changed. Like an abrupt temperature fluctuation or the appearance of a warm breeze. They felt it; they noticed something different around them, involving them.”

    Hi Sara,

    “I often think these connections are old souls who remember each other”

    That’s interesting, talking the posibility of living again as a possible explanation of those “strange” but beautiful moments.

    Thank you for your comments and kind words :)
