At the end of a long day, my husband and I decided to have dinner at a restaurant. I was tired and had a bit of a headache. It was made worse by a naughty toddler at a table after ours. The parents were having a hard time containing this live-wire kid; and they even had to take turns eating morsels from their plates in between running behind this walking-talking big bundle of joy.
The order we had placed seemed to take forever. The high decibel cantankerous child was really getting on my nerves. So I decided to do something about it; I spoke to the kid’s soul from the very core of my being and requested him to pipe down at least some notches.
The food seemed to alleviate my mood. Half way through dinner I realized that the kid was still moving around but quietly; even though his helpless parents were still burning calories running behind him. The young family left a few minutes before we did. Up until then, the kid was not noisy in his exploration of the world around.
Fluke, some might say, but for me it was indeed a soul level communication. There is so much more to us and this Creation.
