The magnificent here and now of life in the flesh is ours,
and ours alone, and ours only for a time.
We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive
and in the flesh, and part of the living, incarnate cosmos.
I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me.
That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly,
and my blood is part of the sea.
My soul knows that I am part of the human race,
my soul is an organic part of the great human soul.
There is nothing of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself,
it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters.
~ D. H. Lawrence
Day 21 of Sadhana, leaving the intense focus of study is like emerging from underwater with your snorkel and mask still in place.
I’m not yet out, but I’m no longer in, and I’m floating in the between.
My experience is wholly my own.
My experience is holy, and my own.
Beauty is everywhere, even in the places I don’t want to look.
Sound has the power to anker me into a new vibration.
Abundance is more than just about money.
What I need to live my unique path will come to me, always, and without fail.
Only the ego wants it to be bigger and more magnificent than it needs.
Spirit knows laundry is magnificent, ego does not.
There is never a time that I am disconnected from the journey.
There is never a time I am not in the flow of all life force.
I am always connected, even when I pretend that I am not.
What I resist freezes inside me like ice … it’s my job to melt the ice with my “spiritual heat” … if I don’t, that’s OK too.
I can’t get this wrong.
Even when I’m not intensely focused, I’m planting seeds for who I want to be.
I breathe the Goddess, and she breathes me, she is the energy of Divine Flow.
English (western) language is insufficient to express the spiritual process … and it doesn’t matter because it’s all about the feeling.
It takes an ant to open a fluffy peony … so too it takes an event to open us, so that we can unfurl and bloom.
The Great Pause is upon me, there is nothing I need to do, only to be.
