We are Body, Mind and Spirit.
We are all living, whether we know it or not on three levels. The body is the most familiar; you know the physical plane, like an animal getting its needs met. The second is the mind which knows identity, emotions and intellect, where the ego hangs out and overrides even the body. Finally the third level is the light of spirit, rays which mystically illuminate and unite every moment, my favorite but also the most elusive.
This vital and annoying triad relationship is acting upon us all the time. Typically some of us feel swamped these days, out of control, lonely on a crowded planet, stalked and adrift from our purpose and source. There is so much to ignore, to participate, to defend, to tolerate, etc. We experience fully only a small percentage of what is available and that is overwhelming. Many of us are haunted by a desire for more, but more of what? I slow down some days and grace sets in as I realize everything is just as it should be. I notice I have given up because I am tired of trying and I coast. It is Bliss.
When I was younger,
The feeling of being disconnection was ever present. I used to imagine I was an aspiring individual, independent and able to control and know reality. Folly! I tried just to live in the body where fitness was the prize, and then I tried to live in the mind of learning and discipline. Nothing satisfied me for long, I was somehow truncated between body and mind, shifting always in every direction like sand in the wind. I imagined everyone else had it together and they were not affected by environment, health, emotions, family, expectations etc. I convinced myself I would have it together at age 35, then I moved it to 45 and now I have given in to knowing life is sand shifting, as natural as the wind which moves it.
The idea of divine light was unknown to me,
I knew it in theory but could never be absolutely sure what the light was or where it came from. Now at the age of 59, I say to myself, don’t give up, stay awake it is just about to change. I know this because every second holds the key to rest and complete stillness. Just stop! Mediation has helped me realize this. The way peace of mind and body subtly sneak into you is through your breath, realizing we cannot control any of it and the breath will always be there. There is no where to get to there is being and that being is lived filly through all three windows, interchangeable and complete.
Bliss, Give up!
Looking for the Light, what is it?
Divine light bubbles to the surface with irrepressible joy and vitality when we balance the interior with the exterior. Our eyes sparkle with the sheer joy of being alive, for our self and for others. The awareness of my own body, mind, and spirit leads to the awareness everyone has these dynamic three acting as well. Every person on this planet is my brother and sister. When we fight and war against one another we fight and war against ourselves. Just stop! Use your intuitive light as your guide, – like a GPS system – programming your highest potential for good. MAKE GREAT ART
