Take today to remember as Rumi wrote - 'Whatever I was looking for was always you.' Every search begins and ends within, in the full presence of all light that is your essence. Everywhere you look you are surrounded by the embrace of all that is divine. Plant whatever seeds remind you of this truth. Plant them in the hearts of your friends, in the minds of strangers and in the em-brace of your loved ones. There is no greater miracle than to hear beyond the ears and to love with all your heart, radiating outward from source expanding creations power with each incredibly fortuitous breath of life.
Allow for the grandest expression of light to bring forward all the seedlings necessary for the re-birth of our creative infrastructure of peace. Deliver that which opens the floodgates for all to come. Listening to the sounds of joy. Hearing the sounds of Love.
Offering unconditional love allows roots to spring forward and divine flowering to flourish, grounding the earth. Living in the oneness of all that is so that the cycles and the flow of nature can work its powerful magnificence.
When you ask what is our responsibility in this day and age where consciousness oozes out of every projection. Where love waits beyond the fear. The answer is faith. Faith in the unseen. Faith in Love. Faith in each other and faith in a god that is in us but not of us. Faith in that relaxing beautiful nature of the divine father and the earth mother to do what they do.
Extend the creationism of birth and light to shine as brightly as possible, in all its forms as the absence of self and the wholeness of what will be.
What has been, is undone, and what will be, has begun.
Today's offering is a Mantra for strength using the RAM seed sound "rum"
Take a deep breath extending from the center navel chakra ma-nipura and the body's power centre.
Begin to say "Rum" for the RAM seed sound.
Keep breathing saying "Rum" from your power centre
Until you feel stronger
Until you feel grace
Until you feel light flowing through your being
Use your tone and breath to ease into your power centre and achieve the mantra's intention of
full and total Harmony.
Rise Up. Be a light to the world.
Mantras are spoken expressions of waves that vibrate with healing energy inviting more and more harmony into your consciousness.
To support your efforts, I share a teacher of mine that started my practice of Mantra based meditation, Thomas Ashley Farrand. Farrand's work focused on bringing this ancient technology and language forward. In his book "The Ancient Power of Sanskrit Mantra and Ceremony: Volume I" he shares his insights on Om Namah Shivaya as:
"While this mantra has no direct translation. The sounds relate directly to the principles which govern each of the first five chak-ras on the spine...Earth, water, fire, air, ether. Notice that this does not refer to the chakras themselves which have a different set of seed sounds, but rather, the principles, which govern those chak-ras in their place. A very rough, non-literal translation could be something like, 'Om and salutations to that which I am capable of becoming.' This mantra will start one out on the path of subtle development of spiritual attainments. It is the beginning on the path of Siddha Yoga, or the Yoga of Perfection of the Divine Vehicle."
Again, mantras are spiritual formulas for working with universal energies expressed through you. They are designed to eliminate obstacles as we progress spiritually.
Allow that source of energy to do its stuff within - if Mantra's call to you - check out Thomas Ashley Farrand's work here - in abundance:
It will foster the divine experience that cannot be defined by words.
With Infinite Love and Gratitude
