International Peace Day is coming up in September. Enormous planning is in the making for celebrating this most important date. It made me contemplate the lead up for each of us in creating a peaceful state.
And some valuable offerings have been available to prepare people for this event.
For the last two months I have participated in three sets of free on-line meditations. Deepak and Oprah completed the run, after a series with Osho, and Deva Premal and Miten prior to that. Three lots of 21 days. Each offering their own meditation practices, using mantra, teaching transmission, and reflective journaling options, on their mission, of enhancing the lives of many across the globe. Kind and generous offerings for exponentially lifting the collective vibration, and peacefulness, of humanity.
As a seasoned, and regular meditator, I appreciated the variety they offered.
My more formal meditation training began with the Buddhist tradition. And, since then, in wanting to deepen the philosophies and benefits, I have practiced many methods. Determining what works best for me at each chapter of my meditative maturing, and what fits into my life. Among the many options: receptive, guided, command based, mindfulness, body awareness, relaxation and energetic transference.
The sweetest silence.
It is this silence, when entered, that has been the deepest, richest, and most sacred, treasure.
Walking through the door. Into the silence. And feeling the heart. And meeting the soul. And realising, that it's enormous. It is vastness. It is limitless. It's life completeness, and light essence. And nothing else is needed. It is really truly home.
And wanting to stay there.
Because it is so indescribably expansively peacefully blissfully ecstatically grand.
For those of you who have experienced it, it is seductively brilliant. Floating beyond all the cares and worries of the world.
Yet the soul has a role in trust, to be on sacred earth ground, enacting a purpose found, that brought it to earth. To be in the beautiful body and to do the work it came here for.
So you return. Because you know that you have found the door. And can visit anytime. And because you have a job to do in the practical world. Better for it, and creating it more regularly and readily for yourself and those you love, here on earth.
May we each find, and create, our meditative peaceful soulful state, embody it, bring it back to earth, and spread it all around.
And may International Peace Day be the grandest, deepest, richest yet, for spreading our most sacred state.
