An amazing thing happened during meditation this morning. I would like to share this with you.
You see, I was never big on holidays. I’m not a Grinch or anything like it. Contrary to what some of my family and friends might think, I do feel the holiday spirit.
It’s just… There is so much unnecessary things that people built on top of it, which always seemed to me, was taking the magic out of it.
So, given the fact that I cannot do things when they are expected of me, and that I simply cannot function in any way other than spontaneous and natural, these are the days when distancing and secluding myself from all that frenzy seems like the most beautiful thing in the world.
During those days, I like to spend time with my wife cooking, watching movies, playing games, reading, meditating, making love… You know… Relaxing.
You see, given that I supposed to have a twin, I never learned as a child difference between me and the world that surrounds me. So more often than not, it’s hard for me to fully switch off from all that speed of the outside world. And that bugged me for a long time.
But not anymore.
Meditation is a powerful thing. And we just scratched the surface of it. But what I learned is that if I concentrate on the feeling that is bugging me, then it starts to dissipate. It disappears completely. More accurately, it transforms into something beautiful.
This morning I woke up with a heavy feeling in my chest. It wouldn’t let me do anything unless painted with negative emotions of burden and must. Like somebody else is controlling my time and telling me what to do…
But then my wife gently took my hand, kissed me and hugged me like a child, and we started meditating.
So I did it. I stood before that cloud, and asked: “Alright, I’m listening…”
And an amazing thing happened. The roaring thunder in my chest started thinning until all that is left was heap of space dust gently glowing in the dark.
My body smiled. My soul hugged me. I felt peace and love. And I loved the darkness, as it loved me.
I opened my eyes and my wife smiled looking at me.
That is how we do it.
That is how we do it…
