Sunday November 25, 2013
On Sunday November 25th, after my early morning prayers, I decided to prepare hot water with the juice of half a lemon and chopped-up bits of fresh ginger and to meditate before taking my morning walk. I renewed my commitment within myself to make that difficult choice of non-attachment in a significant relationship, and then I meditated.
As I honored the Ascended Masters in prayer before meditating, I did what I have learned to do: I believed that we are actually seeing one another, and actually connecting verbally and spiritually.
As I honored Paramahansa Yogananda-ji, I saw a butterfly breaking out of its chrysalis, and flying free. Paramahansa-ji told me: “You have been liberated from imprisonment in the world of form. You have been set free.” I knew he was referring to my very difficult and previously painful choice of non-attachment. I felt radiant bliss and love.
Next, I honored Buddha, and what came into my mind was a practice that I have developed as an energy healer of causing the flow of energy in my heart chakra to reverse direction in order to flow, resonate with, and heal my clients as needed. I had also used that technique with the person with whom our relationship had been out of alignment.
It seemed to me that Buddha was doing this with me, or having me do this with him, that is, matching heart chakra flow. But then, the image of the yin-yang symbol came to my mind, and I realized that Buddha was showing me that hearts which resonate with one another in loving partnership will flow together like yin-yang, while each one also stays centered in the divine (represented by the dot on each side).
And then the yin-yang symbol was mirrored, as feelings, thoughts, and intentions are mirrored in relationship, so that the two hearts mirrored one another in sacred balance as the feminine and masculine were balanced within each one, and the love flowed harmoniously because both partners stayed fully centered. What I felt was this incredible loving harmony, and I was experiencing it with Buddha. In other words, our Higher Selves are capable of attaining this loving harmony all the time, independent of anyone else.
I could feel the love and sheer bliss of being so completely centered that one chooses complete non-attachment to Life in its outer form. I felt utter, complete bliss. I laughed. I meditated. I stretched out on the carpet and laughed and laughed with ecstasy so profound that nothing else mattered.
That day, I maintained a higher level of non-attachment and love and joy than I had been for a couple of months, although I found myself experiencing slight fears, slight attachments to negative thoughts, and some attachment to particular outcomes. At least, I noticed when I was doing so, and that is key! So I am grateful for a renewed sense of Enlightenment Living, which is that ability to balance the pearl in the lotus through non-attachment to the outer world of form.
I dedicate my life anew to this purpose: centering myself in divine love and peace, so that I am able to practice non-attachment and receive and share the profound bliss of pure love.
May it be so.
Peace, Love, Bliss,
