This week we have music from Split Brain and Schwann. If you like this podcast, please share it with a friend.
Today we start by taking a nice cleansing breath and envisioning a peaceful place. It may be somewhere real, or somewhere completely from your fantasy. It may be a favorite chair, a quiet room, or perhaps next to a babbling brook. This is your place to explore. Feel the atmosphere of this space. Does it have a scent? Is it warm? What does it feel like on your skin? What does it taste like on your tongue? This is your time to explore this space. Take some time to just breathe and enjoy.
From this sacred space, I would like to share with you a Lakota Prayer that a friend shared with me this week.
teach me how to trust
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things
so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear,
and thus Walk in Balance
with the passing of each glorious Sun.
What a beautiful thought. The Great Mystery, that which is unknown and unknowable let me know who I am, trust in myself so that I can enter my Sacred Space and LOVE BEYOND MY FEAR! How many times to we hold back our love for worry about what people may say or think? It is the trust in ourselves and loving those around us that allows us to truly walk in balance.
We cannot truly be content until we know that we are one with each other and with the Universe. We can only understand what that means through realizing that the separate ego is truly not capable of pleasure and contentment since a society who has convinced him into believing he is separate, can never believe that he belongs. Alan Watts says, “Peace can be made only by those who are peaceful, and love can be shown only by those who love. No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”
It is your connection to others which defines you. The separate person is without content and content. You create your life. Take time to celebrate and strengthen your trust in yourself and love beyond your fear this week.
