Everything is Connected - An AHA Moment with Natalie Brown

My husband, Elizabeth and I moved to Campbell River from Calgary in December 2016. Shortly after we arrived, Dan had to leave for a 10 days work shift in Gold River. The moving truck was delayed in transit. Elizabeth and I were sleeping on a floor and had nothing to keep us busy, except for a pen and few pieces of paper. We only had one car and Dan had to take it with him. So there we were, pouring rain outside,

Elizabeth and I, stuck in a house with nothing to do and nowhere to go. Have you ever spent a week in an empty house with a cranky 5 year old? It’s not fun. We took a bus to downtown, but the weather was absolutely miserable and we got soaked from head to toe. We did not even had rain gear at that time!

I was incredibly lonely, missing my friends and family over Christmas, worried about starting a new job and creating a new life in this unfamiliar little town. After a few weeks I’ve discovered the Center for Spiritual Living. I’ve never been a spiritual person, or believed in god, or could buy into the concept of organised religion. But somehow the teachings at the Center agreed with me.

All my life I tried to control my circumstances chasing after happiness, but never really finding it. I moved from town to town, changed universities, tried different jobs, went through a number of careers, yet I never seem to get any closer to peace. The Center made me realize that happiness comes from within, not without. I had to stop chasing after it, come to the stand still and look inside myself in order to finally find what I was looking for.

As a scientist, I have a difficult time believing in God. I fully understand the benefits of religion: stress reduction, connection to the community, longer and happier lives, better health. I just can’t get on board with a concept of some greater being who is constantly watching me, judging me, waiting for me to screw up. What I can believe though, is that everything is interconnected. I can see it in science. The sun sends energy down to earth in form of heat and light. This energy gets absorbed by the plants and transformed into carbohydrates. Cows eat grass, humans eat cows, mosquitoes feed on humans, birds eat mosquitoes. There is a constant current of energy that flows through and around us. We are born out of this current and when we die, we simply rejoin this flow of energy. Trees and flowers absorb the energy from our remains and pass it on to the next generations. The sun’s energy does not just feed the living things. It evaporates water from the oceans and forms clouds, allows rain to fall and rivers to flow. The winds are also fed by the sun, as it heats some parts of our planet more than others. The fossil fuels are remnants of sun's energy that arrived on earth many years ago. The rain and hurricanes, the rivers and lakes, the lichens and baobabs, the worms and humans - we are all set in motion by the sun's energy, and we are all connected.

That very first day at the Center I felt that connection and I could not stop crying. This new community accepted and embraced me at the time I need it most. I was finally home. It felt like a heavy wall of clouds lifted off my mind to let a ray of sunshine in. It gave me energy to keep going. And I knew from that moment on that I would be OK.
