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.
My inner universe opened at that moment. Stars and galaxies aligned. Among numerous clouds of emotions, there was one located in my chest that is thundering. It seems like it wants to be heard.
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…

Dear friend, Thank you very much, I was really happy to have been following your blog. I’m still a lot to figure out, and here I can only say that you are an awesome blogger, full Inspiring and hope you can inspire more readers. Thanks and greetings compassion from Gede Prama 🙂
We feel that the greatest thing we can do is just to inspire others. There’s a great deal of spiritual growing we noticed in ourselves, just by meditating and silencing our thoughts. And we’d like to share this. ‘Cause only by being example you can inspire people. Not by preaching. If just one person gets something from our words, then that text is served its purpose. Thank you for the kindness, friend.
Pressing your pause button and then taking a look at things more calmly…It suddenly feels like glass barriers shatter for me, letting me see things more clearly. I guess, from those reflection times, I formed a habit out of using the word “AWAKEN!” as a mantra.
That’s beautiful word to guide us…
And I also find it cool, as it also reminds me of all those heroes in fiction!
I look at it this way: Every hero is born out of some ideal. Books, movies, comics… They are cool.
Hehehe, I know why my favorite is anti-hero the Venom….
