[ Divinely Inspired by Day 9: I am Pure Unbounded Awareness of the Oprah & Deepak 21 Day Meditation Experience ]
As I stood in front of the Bodhi tree I saw the light of Om Hreem.
From my eyes,
From my hands,
From my heart…
In the silence between the mantra’s hum it activated sporadically.
My mind fought against it with frivolous thoughts.
There was not much silence,
Compacting, confining noise.
Dimness and falsehood arose in the place of placidity.
I opened my mouth in protest and the light expanded with the mantra.
I witnessed my head fall around my shoulders,
It was a cloak hood,
heavy and worn.
The light, unconfined, extended infinitely beyond my human clothes.
I unbuttoned my heart and the light shone through the chambers.
I unzipped my body, and took it off like a jacket.
Without distraction, the light is sustained, unfettered, and free.
I opened the center of the Bodhi Tree.
I split the wood and discovered the same light in it.
I unzipped the sky and discovered the same light in it.
I looked at the sun and saw that our light was one.
We reflected acts of unconditional love and nurturing.
The sun too, asked to be unzipped.
I opened the mouth of the universe and saw the myriad faces of truth and burned with the energy of manifestation.
Pure source energy: that is all we are. All that surrounds and pervades us is our own intelligent design, right down to the gods we pray to and the crosses we carry.
We can heal any ailment, create any miracle, become anything…
Source energy is objective, the mind is the creator, and all life is a work of art no matter how great, small, treacherous or sacred. The light works and lives in all.
The body is a façade, a vehicle for the transportation of energy.
Death is a time of manifestation. It is not eternal, but instead a tender, sacred disrobing, a donation back to the wheel of life when the experience no longer fits like a glove.
We are all inherently aware of this but fear the gleam of light in the palms of our hands.
Our animal aspects desire for blood, but our conscious selves subdue the carnal feeding.
No longer must we be afraid of crystalline clarity.
No longer are we just a blip on the map of the gods.
We are living awareness,
Shining beacons of light that guide us above our own clouds of fear.
When you don’t know where to turn, move inward.
Open your heart to the miracle of the experience.
Allowance of such is the pathway to full consciousness.
It is the road leading to the city of joy.
