Life and EvolutionAugust 2, 2011 Leave a comment
Our first son was born on Saturday, he came two months early and he is AMAZING. Clearly I am gushing with joy, excitement and love! I have spent very little time with our baby (who hasn’t yet told us his name), but I am already enraptured by him – bonded, mightily connected. And isn’t that so much of what we talk about here on the IISC Blog? Love, connection – life, evolution.
The idea that “the connection between nodes is an ontological equal to the nodes themselves” makes so much more sense to me now than it did last week! It makes sense in my own experience of relationship and it makes even more sense as I witness Samantha’s transformation into mother – primal and abundant.
I am overflowing with insight into love and into the drive to life. I bow before the evolutionary thrust that brings a child out of the womb. He is such a part of me, and such a part of her, and yet he is so much himself – grounded in history and yet completely new.
May we remember who we are.
