Ever see a character in a classic film placing a station-to-station phone call? Back then, communications were made from a specific place, a station. One specific point in time and space to another specific point in time and space. A letter was simply stationary, static, permanent ink frozen on paper. Still. Sealed and moved from station to station.
Communication has changed dramatically since then. My communication “station” is wherever I happen to be standing with my cell phone in hand. You can speak to me or Tweet me at my station-less station.
But with all our communications advances, I still love to write letters. I’ll clear off the dining room table, turn off the ringer, light a candle, set up my favorite cup of tea, and choose some paper from my different boxes of stationery – something with an image that really speaks to me, or is meaningful to my letter’s recipient.
Sounds like I’m setting up some quiet “me-time”, doesn’t it? I could simply dash off a note, I suppose, but if I’m going to do that, I may as well send an email. But, as an energy worker, I know that if I take the time to center myself before sitting to write, that the stationery will become anything but still. That ink becomes anything but frozen. In that quiet moment of letter-writing, all my love and memories and best wishes are transferred, like invisible white light, from my heart into that ink and onto that paper.
And on the other end, the person receiving my letter will open it, touch it with a warm, human hand, experience the energy pouring from that vibrating paper, and feel instantly connected to me. No cell phone required.
