Post 2 Merging with the Self

November 22, 2015

 

 (The posting of this meme in social media: Nov. 10, 2015)



     As I sit here this morning, I feel a changeless reality, a living “hum” surrounding me. As my attention focuses on it, it becomes more real. A moment opens, and my reality begins to shift from a sense of being this person—this body sitting in this chair, to identify itself with this living paradigm that surrounds me—this reality I call the River.

     My sense of self grows more transparent, moving deeper into this living stillness of the River. At intervals, a thought or an emotion passes through, and I am temporarily pulled back into the sense of being the body and the old me. These are like clouds passing through. Then the awareness looks out once again upon the River and I effortlessly move back into It. As time passes, less and less am I pulled back into the body by thoughts and feelings. The River grows in strength and beauty, permeating the forms of this dimension. My identification with It becomes complete and I am in everything.  

     Take a moment now to sit with me in stillness. Experience your awareness turning its focus away from your sense of self in the body to the living stillness that surrounds you. Feel your awareness move beyond its nest in the body, merging with the River—the changeless River beyond. See how incredible you are. Words cannot touch you.
