This is from my morning contemplation today, Saturday. I have linked this to a piece I wrote a while ago, on sitting like a mountain, as it seems most relevant.
The ‘sitting’ meditation is incredible. I am able to dive deep into the ocean of being. In fact there are energy waves moving throughout my body, like large snakes of vibrancy and potency, undulating from one end of my spine to another. Sometimes they physically move my body off the ground. They are strong, calm and embracing, like a mother ocean to her waves.
Then I move into the space of silence and stillness.
There is no movement of thought.
With deep gentleness and kindness, there is a moment of ‘turning toward’, a softening when the mindful awareness wakes back up, and in the centre of my vision is the ‘blue pearl’, awake and clear and bright and still, and very very alive. I cannot imagine it, as it is not of the mind. I cannot describe it, as it is beyond words.
It is all embracing and all engulfing, like a divine mother, and, like a portal, transports me to other worlds.
Thank you for listening and sharing in this energy, a most sublime, insightful and pure meditation into the clear light of being.
WHO AM I?
When all thoughts cease and the mind remains in the heart, I am THAT.
A vast ocean.
Where there is witnessing of the thoughts as they arise, intermittently, like tiny waves ruffling the surface of the sea.
A mountain sitting.
A lake at peace, mirroring the sunrise.
The Light inside.
Remaining constantly still and quiet.
I am THAT.
The vast space of Being.
It is rather shocking to realize that you are not all that you thought you were, that you are not your thoughts, that you are not ‘I’ which gave rise to those thoughts.
The Presence that IS, is vast, wisdom, and Being.
That is all that needs to be done.
It IS that simple.
Take the time to sit quietly and be with your SELF.
5, 10, 30 minutes, an hour.
That is all it takes.
Total acceptance of who you are NOW and total surrender of the self.
Love and soul blessings
