Inhale. Pulling the diaphragm in towards the spine. Exhale. Dropping your awareness down into your body's mind. Falsely inhale, no air in your nostrils, and pull the diaphragm up connecting the seat of your power with the force of love through the gate of Uddiyana Bhanda, so that the power you harness is the only one that can never be misused. More love is merely more love.
In connecting to this love in our hearts, we find our true identity. The Bhagavad Gita reads, "People are the sum total of the beliefs they hold in their hearts...and there are many faiths....One's faith corresponds to one's nature, and one's nature is equivalent to one's faith" (17.2-3)
In finding the truth of who you are in your heart, your purest child heart filled with joy and wonder, you will also come to love, unconditionally accept and encourage yourself to express as an act of faith. Know that it is your spiritual responsibility to authenticate, to come in contact with your truest Soul Nature, beyond sex, beyond station, beyond role. The moment you seek to make contact, your soul rises to meet you.
Breath by breath.
Delving deeper and deeper to each particle and part through the gates of your being. Accessing the pathways to another self, another body, delving so entirely into that body that you dissolve and return to the Source. Through our very breath, harnessing our connection to the Great Spirit.
As we reconnect, we bring all our parts and particles together and experience wholeness.
The Hawaiians teach that there is a place in the center of our being through which mana, the animating force for all things in the Universe, enters into this world from our highest self, it is seeking our aliveness, awareness and responding. In our truest moments of life, we have all felt these complexities drop into simplicity and known presence for the way energy is both receeding and entering all at once.
This energy teaches that in order to heal the collective, we must first heal ourselves.
It is our divine responsibility to
1. Remember our True Selves and our connection to the Divine.
2. Develop ourselves to meet the potential of our True Selves in this body.
3. Un-do and re-do our lives and past by applying lessons we have learned in experiences that have unfolded for our growth.
4. Start again and leave behind any story that is not a reflection of our ultimate power of love serving in our truest capacity as self within the love we have for others.
How to begin? Simply, we begin here. In this body that we are, in these physical beings let us begin to remember why we are here and what we were meant to do, so that we can, at last, get it done.
This is our defining moment, let go into possibility allowing the infinite to infuse meaning into the temporary. Obeying our natural instincts, finding the truth of our life and standing for it. Keeping our agreements to end cyclic loops for new story lines, to shine in the world, unlimited, fully supported, safe to embody, and breathing with the light.
And in every instant of breath, planting seeds of courage, hope, laughter. Planting the seed that God is real and directs our lives, that even when it is hard, we are loved and we will pray to stay together as one race of human kind, to forgive the things we have done to one another, to let go into the experience of being healed in our hearts and supporting healing actions. Healing our relations past, present, and future. Healing our desires by balancing them with devotion.
To remember as Leo Buscaglia writes that "what is essential is not only to take from life, but it is essential that you put something back into it."
What we put back into it is a accumulation of a life story, a life story that is your soul's prayer bundle and gift back to the Creator at death--that beyond religion, upbringing, age, gender, experience we can cling to the true essence in all nature, that there is an omnipotent power who lifts us up, seeks us out in private moments and secret prayers, to give us value beyond partnerships, friends, and external affirmation.
Truth authentically expressed in untold moment of union when our personal power yokes with the power of the Universal Love flowing through prayer channels via our breath that leads us to surrender our will in order to experience the freedom of spirit, exploring our human potential to realize our awesome capactiy to be an instrument of God, not merely observing where we all are in our spiritual growth as we evolve towards a peaceful existence together but participating in a state of wonder and mutual appreciation for each person's unique gift.
It is a gift of untold value, this spark of consciousness that is gifted to each one of us in order to elevate our understanding and move us to choose a higher order of thinking. Spirit driven choices for a blessed time, a very special destiny, that of us all passing through our evolution together as agents of change, in full power and experiencing the light that exists within us all.
Whatever life you choose, let it support what the Great Spririt has breathed into you--caused you to become and may the partners, friends, family that surround you hold a mirror up for the beauty you are. This embodiment is free of competition and ego, it is easy and it is yours right now in this moment. You are perfectly you. May we then, spend our time praising not only each other, but the Creator who so perfectly made us, who "loves the handful of the earth you are." (Neruda)
