Our brains have 100 billion neurons and every single one of them is connected to 10 thousand other neurons.

The way I see it, sitting on our shoulders is the greatest of all super computers, the ultimate machine.brain

The thing with that many connections is that who we are can easily go haywire.  It’s remarkable we’re as sane as we are considering all the incredible opportunity for crazy to be hardwired deep within us.

I’ve not seen a map however I suspect brain wiring is like our fingerprints, uniquely our own.

Today, a man jumped in front of my car on the way home. I almost hit him.

I stopped and quickly realized he was wired not like the rest of us… He was in his own world, his brain transmitting a unique frequency.  (Around here we call his kind crazy.)

I tried to talk with him but it didn’t register so I just watched him for a moment sizing up the vibe.  I wanted to help in some way, he clearly was a danger to himself and others and I wasn’t sure if he was addicted or just off or what.

As I considered, he began to sing.

I didn’t have anything really to offer him so when I recognized the song I instantly knew what to do.

I sang along with him right on the side of the road out in the middle of humanity and instantly we were in harmony in every way that exists.

He was so happy.

The smile he had was so big it got in the way of his singing; he couldn’t contain his joyful appreciation.

He taught me what should be so obvious… the very first thing we can all do is meet people wherever they are and see them, recognize them, love them, no matter what wiring they arrived with.

I pulled away after our incredible moment together grateful for his brain wiring….. it provided this opportunity to learn yet another way to add more love to the world.

His song choice, let it be…. by the Beatles.  Of course.

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it beMore?
