Illusion is a degree of distortion of our thoughts. This is due to our imperfect instrument (the mind) attempting to access and interpret intuitive impressions from the Buddhic plane (the source of our intuition). As we strive to improve our alignment with our soul and the One Life, a meditation practice facilitates contact with the intuitive field. However, we must ‘train’ the mind to enable it to work within the intuitive realm just as we do when we are in training for a sport or vocation.
A mindful “Good bye” at the end of life is powerful stuff. It is putting voice to an end without pretense. There is reality and acceptance in knowing that – ‘This life will end soon and we will not see each other again…at least in this form.’ It is a period.
It is the last period, in the last paragraph of, the last sentence of, the last chapter of a book.It is the last thing we get before the words, The End.
How did I want to hold this period? What did I need for a sense of completion? What was the right way to say “Good-bye” for me? What did I really want to say? How was I going to say it?
Water is life and life requires the presence of water. In abundance. Without it all life perishes and becomes dust. Without it all life ceases to exist. For we live on in the curling sweep of a single blue ecosystem, where every creature is intimately and intrinsically connected to every other creature. Water provides connection and it provides balance. Water is the way in which life transmits itself and joins one form to another. To understand water is to understand the physical reality of life.
The Transformative Power of Love - 28 Days of Rumi: I love my friends neither with my heart or with my mind. Just in case my heart might stop. Mind can forget. I love them with my soul. Soul never stops or forgets.
