If people realized that meditation is like a full body orgasm, more people might be interested.
But then again, people who'd seek meditation for that reson would probably have a really, really long way before they reached that stage. :-D
Meditation is to experience the expanse of your beingness, as wide as space, as small as a photon, both infinite in their own ways.
Meditation is being with yourself as you are. When you are able to truly be with yourself without hanging on to anything of what you generally regard as yourself, you will get to a stage that could be compared to a full body orgasm.
Start small and just be aware of your breathing. This you can do at any time. The only things necessary are your breathing and your awareness. Do this regularly and the benefits to your daily life will be enormous.
You can also start by contemplating an image, allowing nothing to come between you and your looking.
One thing to say about love is that it’s often a missed opportunity. Anohter thing to say about love is that very few people know what it is, or even want it. They just think they do.
Many will live a whole life never knowing what love is. Many people will feel the longing but not know what it is. They will translate the longing into wants and desires – things or states that can be fulfilled through calculated effort and action.
Or they put up obstacles for themselves.
Or there will be seemingly dangerous corners to turn around.
Fear takes over.
Fear is a fantasy. Love is real.
Then there is the mistaken belief that we need to protect ourselves against being hurt. (Oh, how many times I have done this in the past!)
But this protection also protects against love. It’s a fool proof covering and you are the one caught in the net. When the other also is doing this you are both stuck.
Then there is the mistaken belief that vulnerability is weak or painful. It’s not. Vulnerability is power and strength. It’s uncompromisingly being who you are.
The only thing that gets hurt in love is the ego. (Ego here = the person you have become, the cherished personality that we so often mistake for ourselves and that the whole society encourages us to build from birth to death. The picture we have of ourselves.)
Love is found beyond the person. Love is where YOU are. It’s a mystery why this is so clouded and laced with fear when it’s so simple.
YOU can never get hurt.
Free from the dictates of memories, I am not the past. Free from the dictates of anticipation, I am not the future. Grounded in beingness, I am now. Inside all, outside all, beyond all.
This has nothing to do with perfection or achievement. It is the opposite of perfection and achievement. God knows I’m imperfect. I have failed many times. Made many mistakes. All the same I am beyond my failures.
There is nothing here really. Everything is of the mind and it’s not there, not here. It’s only my creation. Everything is what the mind imagines it to be. In reality nothing is there. There are no mysteries. Yet everything is deeply mysterious. There is no unknown power inside me. This is everything there is and I am it.
Living on two planes I try to do what is expected of me on the earthly plane. I do laundry, cook, I deal with problems. I even worry sometimes. But I have stopped escaping. I don’t prop myself up. I allow myself to fall, to fail. I deal with others, that are just as imperfect as myself. I don’t over-act. I let things take time. By waiting I find myself doing things at the right moment, with no wasted energy and fewer mistakes.
At the same time, on another plane, I am constantly flowing in freedom and joy. The meeting points of the eartly and the heavenly are accessible and I make room for them. They are beauty, appreciation and love. Those are the connection points, the pointers to truth and harmony.
In the earthly experience I never step out of my center anymore. I don’t get lost–or even if I’m lost, I’m not lost. It is so extremely simple but the mind is always looking for the complicated, and for the drama. The mind craves drama. It's an endless cycle until you break it.
Love is simple. It’s the easiest thing in the world. How simple and natural to love. Yet people go out of their way to make it complicated and impossible.
You just have to want freedom more than anything else but so often the world gets in the way. Wants and fears obscure the path. Beyond them–freedom.
Charlotte Brady about love, life, freedom and abiding in the heart every moment of the day. This is where flesh is spirit and spirit flesh in raw unadulterated devotion. Life is worship!
