The Hippie in us all

Another Short Story from L.A. Black

…so close your eyes and have no fear… They sang that over and over everything’s

Music Inspired Dream or is it?? I am driving my Hippie school bus headed to Oregon and I notice three men on the side of the road are hitchhiking. Naturally, I pull over, open the door and say where are you headed, they looked dazed and confused, said where ever your going is fine with us..as they climbed the stairs into the bus glancing at the inside they said we are Abraham, Martin, & John. I thought to myself for a brief moment that I was dreaming… They got comfortable in my humble abode as we neared the ocean close to Eugene OR., and as we grew closer to the beach we all looked out the window in amazement at what seemed like a concert on the beach. Hundreds of people sitting around fire pits & were chanting OM….so loud it was almost deafening, but at the same time hypnotizing…as we stepped off the bus everyone stopped and looked our way as we stood leaning against the bus and they all sang, it’s okay, it’s alright because everything’s, everything’s a miracle, so close your eyes and have no fear… They sang that over and over everything’s, everything’s a miracle, so close your eyes and have no fear… As I looked around I seemed to recognize everyone, they became more clear as I stood there on that beach, the ocean waves were soothing, the chanting became softer, softer as to lull us to sleep… I heard someone say, Love is all that exists, you will not exhaust the Love in the Universe if you were to absorb it from now until the end of time. Love is all that exists… All matter is formed by Love.

Love is the glue that holds the Universe together. Love comes in many containers, Love is eternal, Love is an unbreakable connection. Remember, though is a tool, leave your tools behind, Love is the answer. Remember Life happens when you’re making other plans… Love, Peace, Kindness, Faith, & some Music too…… I could feel the ocean breeze on my face, smell the burning Embers, and all at once I woke back in my Hippie school bus, back in this human world of fear, hate, confusion, sickness, and pain, but also full of faith, hope, and love. So close your eyes & have no fears, Love is what connects us all…♡♡
