It is My Birthday Today...
48 years ago I came into this world, born prematurely and weighing 3 pounds.The doctor said I would not make it, but the maternity ward nurse assured I would make it because I had my hands in a fist.
I spent 3 months in the incubator.
The picture on the left is my first day home.
Each year I grow older I marvel, wah, I am still alive.
I know my mother, now in heaven, gave me deep unconditional love, consistently and consciously. Still, I ask what is the force?
What is this force that makes anyone overcome the most unthinkable hardships, pain and suffering? I hear many life stories in my work. And I am in awe of our human capacity to prevail.
I am convinced that this force comes from the heart and that the heart of the universe dwells in our heart.
In Sanskrit the Heart Center is called "Anahata" meaning "unhurt" "unstruck" "infinite",
because of the transcendental capacity to rise above all duality and connect with the inexhaustible power of the soul, our true self. The heart is our truth center.
When we say something in earnest like thank you or I am sorry we naturally touch our heart.
(not our nose, head or belly button)
During gratitude, emotional healing or vision board meditations we use the heart as the center.
Our heart is a limitless source of wisdom, love and universal power.
It also stores our deepest desires, beyond the superficial wants of the mind.
During my self inquiry meditations the passed year, I asked "what is my heart's deepest desire?"
A string of desires arise: living close(r) to Mother Earth, a tantric partner, an outdoor bathroom, an electric vehicle, chickens.....although some manifested already, I always end up at this one that feels so far away, like a big step, a dream.... living in a community, a self sustainable community with like hearted and like minded souls. But I leave this for another newsletter.
Let's start simple, let's start with just Community. Connecting with each other again and overcome the isolation and fear the pandemic has caused.
