WHERE DO WE FIND OUR COURAGE? How do we tap into innate wisdom, insight? How can we know just what to do? How do we find inner peace … and also our resolute spirit?
When we give ourselves time each day to be in meditation or any form of inner stillness, quiet, we feel our true Self.
To access communion with our spirit, our soul –
- We may use deep rhythmic breathing to slow us down, calm our thoughts and emotions.
- We may include chanting, the OM, the AUM.
- We may listen to a guided meditation or visualization recording.
- We might use some form of repetitive, focused physical activity; such as yoga, tai chi, walking, jogging, hiking, mountain climbing, fishing.
- We might simply sit in nature, or walk alongside the ocean or a stream.
Whatever activity or nonactivity helps you to be in the deep inner solace, this is your way.
There are many techniques and traditions. They all work.
They were learned by that teacher or master (who then taught it) when discovering how to key in on the inner realm where we all can feel ourselves in the magnificent splendor.
Something happens to you. You feel a buzz, a vibration, a chill rushing through. You feel a sense of import, a rapture, a quickening. Something different is happening to you. Not your everyday experience or sensation.
This is a natural high. Safe. A magnificent splendor!
You feel like more than yourself, heightened, clear.
Yet your true self: This is me. This is who I am. This is the real me.
You can get there, eventually, in as little as fifteen minutes, or thirty, or an hour, with daily practice.
When you feel The Bliss, you want to stay there. You feel so wondrous. You feel amazing!
– all through focused attention and deep breath.
This is achieved naturally – merely by devoting yourself to the experience, every day. Using whatever tools help you to get there.
If you’ve been wondering, How do I know who I really am? This Inner You is the real you.
In your Clear Self, you feel fully present, fully aware. Yet also able to fathom the greatest complexities – and able to see, know, and understand the mysteries of life, even time and space.
Because in this Natural state, you are one with all.
When we are in this state, we see and know the heart of humanity. We feel the balance. We feel the rhythm. We feel the thoughts, longings, and needs – of all. We feel the challenges and crises, as well as the hopes and aspirations – of all.
It is in this state that we know not only who we are — but also who are the whole.
This is how we know, what is.
In this state is the calm assurance that all really is well … and is moving forward.
We are moving forward. We are growing, as a people, as a world, as a nation, as a self.
We are becoming more – and we are learning how to be the whole that we are, that each of us is.
Because in our Self, we feel the kinship with all others, and we are able to perceive that life really is good – and so are we.
It starts with the Self – You. Each of us is a cell in the body of humanity.
The healing of the world and of nations starts with each one of us, living as our true Self. Empowered by our soul within.
