The Experiment: Day 84 ~ You Are Not Alone…

Each one, reach one, and love, always love…

I have written that phrase so often in blog posts and elsewhere, I think it’s one of the most important things I have to say.

I sat down before writing this post and put my hand on the screen on the picture above, it is me, touching you, my hand touching yours, we are connected. I believe this with every fiber of my being. No matter if we live alone, or all too often feel alone in the world, we can energetically reach out to our brothers and sisters around the world in so many ways. You could make a phone call, you could Skype with someone, something new to me but amazing in the sense of intimacy between the two people Skyping, you are really there with one another. You can write letters (… something I am sadly no longer good at, I tried, but I just can’t for some reason. I think I spend so much time communicating online that there’s nothing left to say when I come to paper. It makes me very sad.), or send e-mails, or connect and chat in private rooms. You can light a candle, close your eyes, and imagine being face to face with the person in your thoughts. You can silently pray for them, send them love, and if you are very sensitive you can feel their presence as you reach out to them. You know how sometimes someone comes into your mind and feels very present and you feel warm feelings for and about them? That is a very real spirit connection between the two of you. We are all so much more connected than we know.

I feel your presence here with me. I am writing this for you, yes you, if you are reading these words know that I had you in mind when I wrote them. I mean that sincerely. When I check in on the site and see the Live Feed going round and round, people visiting from all over the world, I feel the presences of those who come, I feel it deeply in my heart, and I whisper a silent prayer of thanksgiving. When you are reading my words I am sitting beside you in spirit. When you leave me a comment I glow inside and I answer you with a heart wide open. This is very real to me, this place that you and I are in right in this moment. We are here, together. I feel you, can you feel me?

When you feel very alone, when you are frightened or sad or at a loss please write to me here. I will hold you very close in my heart, I will pray for you, I will answer you sincerely as if we were sitting there together. Don’t be afraid to write to me. This is my work in the world, this work of connection.

I hope you have had a good day and will have a peaceful night ahead. I am right here with you. I send you love…

  1. Thank you, Maitri! I want you to know that every morning when I have my coffee I think “I hope Maitri is enjoying her coffee today”. Your posts about finding your perfect coffee after going keto were so heartfelt that I continue to think of you as I drink my morning brew.

    • Oh Lorraine that is so sweet! Coffee has really been a battle since going keto and a few times I’ve thought I HAD it only to not really like it after 2 or 3 days but FINALLY I found what works for me which is kind of a keto/bulletproof coffee, I make strong French Roast coffee in the French Press, and then put in the blender a heaping tbsp of each coconut oil and Kerrygold butter + (The keto side of things) some heavy cream or whipping cream (You can have those but not milks or half and half.) I also add a heaping tsp of cinnamon and then blend it all up until it’s frothy. It’s very good on its own but I use Lakanto’s Monk Fruit sweetener and a few drops of stevia, both keto allowed. Here’s the interesting thing, while you are eating a low carb/high fat diet on keto you’re not supposed to really overdo the fat because the whole purpose of being in ketosis is that your body burns your own fat for fuel. If you eat too much dietary fat it will burn that first and you won’t lose weight as well, BUT I stopped losing weight at all the last 2 or 3 weeks and have come to find out that since I am eating so little food (on keto you get to where you are literally not hungry, I have to usually make myself eat) that I was taking in so few calories (probably not more than 500 most days, I just wasn’t hungry!) that my metabolism slowed down and my body wouldn’t let go of the weight, it thought I was starving! Once I started adding the bulletproof things back in I started losing weight again because of the extra calories.

      Well good Lord, I went ON. Sorry! The coffee thing has been the only real struggle I’ve had on keto and finally figuring it out feels like a miracle! Ha ha ha, but I didn’t mean to bend your ear. I just love that you think of me while you are having your coffee, now I’ll think of you while I have mine!!! 😀

      • No worries- love your posts. Your coffee sounds rather decadent but delicious- so glad you found a good combo. Yes, we will toast each other as we imbibe each AM!!

  2. I like it when you “go on.” We see another aspect of you, dear Maitri. Merry Christmas!

    • Thank you so much Marge, you are so dear, I’m glad you didn’t mind my “going on!” 😀

      And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours as well…



  3. your blog today echos the first page of my holiday letter this year — the sense of closeness — OVER TIME — i have with my holiday letter list. and the gratitude that they – you –
    have been with me for so long… well, you’ll see, when the taylor family letter arrives.

    Maitri, you are so generous with your soul love. we appreciate your committment and devotion to the 365 days of — showing up, giving, receiving, blessing, surviving, celebrating, sad, happy, always tuning in to the larger picture — the universal truth that we are one humanity. amen! or as my friend steven used to say, awoman!


    • Oh my dear, dear Ka…

      Thank you so much honey, and as I said the other day I look SO forward to your holiday letters. I save them. Of course I lost all the ones I had during the fire, but I have the ones since. There is one on the bookshelves just next to my big chair.

      And thank you so much honey for your kind words about my work on this blog. It means so much to me, it truly does, and I love and appreciate, so much, everyone who takes time to come and read this blog and most especially those of you who take time to comment. It just means more to me than you will ever know.

      I’m just getting off the computer now to get ready for bed, it’s 11:16 p.m. What a lovely gift it was to find your note here before I shut everything down for the night. I love you dear Ka, so much….

      Maitri xo
