Seeing the worlds through the eyes of my heart has shown me what I could never know and in this quiet is a simple peace that wants to grow, this is where I rest, this is my Temple.
As a young adult I loved to travel and so every chance that came my way I was on a plane and every time I stepped off the plane it was like walking into a sanctuary. There was this essence of solitude and reverence that could be felt in those aetheric ancient sights that had divine names because deities had lived there, where people would gather from all places, the poor and the wealthy, educated or not to share their devotion and enchantment in the mythology and history and to stand in the energy of those who stood before us, to stand in the history of our humanity.
And now is this great passion to wonder, this is an inward journey, it’s about the art of my soul, who I am, where I come from, my relationship with the Cosmos. Waking to this passion is not an easy road because it asks that all strings of fear and ideologies be seen and released. With all the challenges of a lifetime we have learned to be so fearful of our souls magnificence of our potential yet still, how amazing that we are alive, aware in this circuit of energy.
I have seen, felt, listened to, sensed many things in my world. I listen to the spirit of the wind and the messages, visions and memories it brings of beauty and sufferings and intelligence and illusion. I touch the spirit of water and dive deep within it currents of feeling, not just of emotions but to feel the poised magnicity of my body, to feel my soul, the tingling of essence. I take into myself the spirit of fire, that passion that builds and sets aflame everything that no longer matters and fills my heart, my being with this perfection of feminine Grace. And I dance on the wings of time with the spirit of this earth, with its integrity, order and absolute oneness with the Cosmos and all existence. When nature is considered, when I consciously move with the rhythms of its quintessence there is harmony, a peace because within my soul is the totality of these elements and within each element rests my soul.
Gangaji has told us to follow our thoughts back to where they rose, to source. Like this I am following the pull of my soul. How could we know the absolute unless a spark of it came into this individuated dense reality, yes individuation is all so very sacred. To rest in the ground of its begetting is unifying the dissension and ascension of my journey and this has changed my person. And in the absence of personality my heart is untaught, full. This is not a vulnerable or broken heart but of the finest frequency of Ahimsa (non-violence) and in this a quality of immense strength.
When we meet our unique passions and give ourselves fearlessly, this influences the greatest because we are interrelated and to be this energy that enhances Peace and connection, to express our true ecstasy inspires the collective in profound ways, it’s so hard to describe but you know.
