The Lake — From My Heart
Deep inside you there is a place where you encounter and become the Divine, and the Divine becomes you.
In a lake, the surface so smooth it reflects everything perfectly.
When you peer into it to see the Divine, you see your face.
It is the place beneath the sand – beneath the illusion of separation.
Where you can have a visceral experience of who you really are – of your true nature.
You can return to your inner lake as often as you like, for it is always available to you.
Until one day there is no lake – no place to “go to.”
Then you have become the lake and the lake has become you.
Separation is no more.
And there is only one: union.
First was the Victim.
Then was the Manifestor.
Next, the Conduit.
Have you ever visited each in a single day?
Often we think of our humanness as a limitation or flaw.
Yet our pathway to transcend lies exclusively in our human condition.
Duality or Non-Duality?
Separation or Oneness?
Caught in separation we see polarity.
Letting go we uncover an experience of being the instrument of an energy that fully flows through us, yet is so much more than we can fully comprehend.
In Union we see only expressions of our love.
We seek a Divine with a fixed frequency.
Tune me up – set the dial to the right channel and I’m set.
Yet the frequency of the Divine is alive – and energy that is constantly in movement and flow, always uncovering more about itself through all of us.
A dance, once endeavored and embraced, leads us deeper into a mystery without end.
Not confined by the boundaries of birth and death. Nor of the breath flowing in and then out.
Nor of whatever words or labels we might birth in an attempt to describe the indescribable.
A dance with more vulnerability than we think is reasonable or even acceptable.
Yet the mystery is always unfolding the more we dance.
Whether you’ve never heard the song of your soul, or been tapping your foot as the music has begun to envelope you …
Whether you’ve been on the dance floor exploding in ecstasy as the ineffable expresses itself in you, through you, and of you …
Whether you understand or know, or feel drawn for reasons that don’t make sense …
The time to dance is now.
There’s plenty of room for everyone – yes even you.
There’s nothing to learn – you already know – you already ARE.
Even if you’ve never seen your reflection in the lake.
Or never sat quietly reflecting.
No matter how broken down you may or may not be.
Set aside the facades … and Dance.
That’s it for this week … From My Heart.
PS – When you’re making plans for the balance of the year, there are five dates I’d like to invite you to share with me. The winter solstice – on December 21st.
And a week later – for 4 Days of Healing. These are f*ree group healing sessions – plan on participating.
I’m looking forward to being with you in this way as we go through a powerful transition into the New Year. http://kenwstone.com/events/
