Empty

ripples

Feel into the quality of your inner world. Notice what challenges and obstacles and feelings are within your world. Now imagine just for a few moments that you could just wish all this away. Now there’s a clean slate, an empty drawing board. Simply breathe into this emptiness…allow it to be empty for just these few moments. Deepen into yourself more and more fully, until your sense of self gets blurry and then poof it’s gone. Like magic what you think you are is gone and there is nothing here.

How is it to be empty of all that you are use to carrying. The habitual drama and ceaseless mental interpretations of reality are pausing…there is this moment and this moment…just breathing into this moment fully. When your mind wanders come back home to this breath…take it in fully. Let this be enough for right now. Feel into more silence, deepen into this absence of story. Feel the quality of stillness of not needing to do anything for just this moment. It’s refreshing…like passing rain on a warm summer’s day leaves everything clean and clear. Let this peace rain all over inside you…cooling and soothing your overactive mind. No need to fill this moment with anyone else, just you, what’s truly you. This deep, well of silence.

Just allowing this silence to fill in all the old drama places and ceaseless mental traces. They are fleeting ghosts passing through now. Let them pass…they have no hold on you in this your true nature. Just passing through sometimes jingling a chain or two, trying to get you to respond. All these old stories, mind thoughts, feelings, memories are just these old ghosts taking up residence in your inner sanctuary.

You are not here to live old memories of yourself or others. You are here to be free each and every moment to engage from this refreshing presence. Turn your back on these ghosts…forgive them for what you thought they did that imprisoned you and them. Surrender them…set them all free.

Once the ghosts settle down and realize you are no longer interested and have stopped replaying the old tapes, they will cease to exist. You may be wondering, what am I without all this ‘stuff’? My question is what are with all this baggage? These ghosts are heavy and they haunt your every move. They are filters that you look at life through and they distort what is real and what is true.

Just for this moment allow them all to be free…every last one. Do this with me…I release all that is past and gone…I forgive and set free all these attachments. See yourself just simply walking by all these ghosts…hundreds, thousands…walk by them now. Keep walking, walk towards the emptiness. Keep moving more deeply into the emptiness, the spaciousness, the silence.

You may still be able to hear them in the background whispering for you to come back to look again and again and make them come alive again and play them out in your life so they become ‘real’ again. I ask you now…is this real, is this reality? Are we just too afraid to let go and find ourselves at home in a peaceful reality? Are we addicted to pushing the replay button and to ceaselessly circling round and round doing the ghost dance, shaking those chains and watching the old bones come alive. Must we live through the dead filter of old memories? Are we afraid there will be nothing left if we let go?

Let’s find out…if you are with me this far, then feel in deeply into the deepest emptiness that is here in this moment…devoid of all. What is still here? This that is here now, what remains is interconnected with all…the all that is empty, the all that is full. But the clinging is easing, the grasping, the relentless trying to make life happen on all these old terms. This is gone…now there is a newness an opening into this moment. This is new. This is without memory or mind…this is full with reality. From this vantage point, you can see, feel and touch existence from within you…soon there is no within you or outside you and now there is no you.

An empty vessel is a blessing. It is freedom from all the illusion. There is no other freedom. No amount of money, love or even health will set you free in this way. Until one has realized…touched, felt, tasted, made love to this, there is still suffering…a perpetual grasping for what can never truly be our home.

This is always here awaiting your disillusionment with the outer world…awaiting your surrender into the void of silence…where all stories cease to exist, where the quiet is breathtaking, where at last in this moment…I am home itself.

It’s from here this inner sanctuary that we truly live. All else is attempts at finding this home in the outer world. When this passage is fully embraced, home is experienced everywhere. The boundaries drop and all is seen and experienced from this awakening to what is. We enter each moment as if it has just rained and left us a clean, clear refreshing encounter with life.

many blessings;

Fabric of Existence

As we stroll through our lives. Within all the ordinariness and the unusual and the impossible, there lies a depth of knowing. When this is activated, acknowledged and lived from, we awaken to the true nature of reality. When we bypass this depth, we become entangled in many superficial life passages. These experiences can inundate, overwhelm, preoccupy and deny reality.

So much of our existence here is swept up in these dramas and yet, there are these precious moments when life itself stops and something amazing is revealed. When I say amazing I am referring to the peaceful, blissful fabric which is always here underlying all this drama. As we struggle with or day in, day out patterned ways living, there are these moments when we realize that there is more to all this.

Yesterday, while connecting with someone in her office, we both heard a woman shrieking. We looked at each other quizzically and both leaped for the doorway. Within a few moments, reality had changed drastically. We both picked up speed quickly and ran to the woman. She had dropped her 6 week old baby on the ground and was devastated. Quickly assessing, as I am comfortable in crisis and have clearing gifts, I began clearing the energy, reassuring the woman that her baby was ok and directed her to breathe into her belly and stay grounded. I knew her baby was distressed because she was distressed. Yet, she was inconsolable for about 15 minutes. The baby was fine as I had intuited.

It was interesting to see how the mother was hysterical, yet, the baby was calm. The mother was blaming herself while the baby, moved gently in her arms. The mother had condemned herself and was confessing to all the immense problems she had in her life. Single mom, father didn’t want the baby and more. For at least 15-20 minutes she did not notice her baby at all.

During this experience, as it has been for most crisis, I felt immensely present and could feel deeply into a peaceful presence. I placed my hands on the woman and her baby and her little girl, simply allowing this energy to pass through. It was a silent offering, here for her, when she was ready to receive it.

I spoke with her today, the day after her crisis and she was quite grateful that her baby was fine.

We often carry so many drama stories within us that in any given moment, most of us could probably spew out a series of lifelong victimizations. Yet, at any point, we can stop, notice the preciousness right in front of us and embrace it fully. When the mother was able to stop the stories and breathe into the new life that was within her arms, she could see that this young guy was a real trooper and was handling the experience quite well. Of course, this was verified by the EMT.

Funny, how in a moment of presence I knew he was fine and it was his mom who was carrying an immense amount of suffering, who needed the clearing and support.

I know it is easy for me to have seen all this, because it was not my baby falling on the sidewalk. I was removed enough and able to feel the underlying peace that this situation was calling forth through me. This is always the fabric of each unfolding situation. The more we realize that this is the reality, the more we awaken to an ease and grace of all
