This is the way the sky looks in the morning when we are at the beach at sunrise for our meditations. I have been at the training for almost 2 weeks. No television or news, no cell service, no distractions, just me and the group and the intense work we are doing. It’s hard work looking and re-looking at your self. Trying to truly see the way your mind works. Watch how it can spend endless hours making sure you hold onto some antiquated negative thought about yourself just because it’s ‘comfortable’ and you are ‘used to it’. Somehow comfortable is better than awesome, really???
The sun begins to come up as we do our breath work and chanting. Your heart is moved. There is nothing you can do about it. While you watch the sunrise and the changing colors in the sky you notice how all at once the world is alive. You really can’t help but be moved.
In a world where labels and things are held as important and the separation that people feel from their people and their society, the idea of community stands to replace what is a valuable commodity, companionship. The unconditional love and support you find within your community what ever kind of community it is, is a necessary part of a positive life. As more and more people are alone or single by choice they will need community to stay independent. A spiritual community is a special thing as each member is there to learn, to grow and assist and like i said we all need a little assistance every now and again.
The Ocean does its magic every morning giving me a greater focus than the fatigue I feel, it brings me the grace of the Divine. I watch every morning what the creator has done, and given us. I see the light so I may see the worlds glory, I hear the waves so I may hear the mighty wisdom of the universe, I feel the wind so I may know the creator is there, everywhere.
As the sun comes up to its glory we do a special meditation called Star Pose. Doing it while watching the sun, allows the heart to expand even more making you so grateful for the day. Have a great day!
