In a Space that is Infinite



When I sit in deep meditation,

I often find myself deep down

in the depths of the ocean.

I’m not sunken as one might imagine

I am floating

in a space that is infinite.

There is comfort around me.

My awareness is heightened

by all my senses

alert as I experience

this place of my inner self.

I exist in peace.

The sensations in my body are pleasant,

almost a light breeze caressing me.

A thought comes in and I look up

and see high above

the surface and the sky beyond.

My thoughts are floating on the surface,

bobbing with the movement of the ocean.

I am not my thoughts

for I am deeply nestled

in a place of stillness,

a sanctuary of sorts

empty and full,

quiet and surrounded by aliveness,

Without a body and yet I see my body,

opposites, none and all.

Stillness has brought me here.

My inner world is deep

Yet I look up to pray

My inner world is filled with life

And yet I sit alone

My thoughts are floating by

And yet sometimes weigh heavy on my mind

I am safe

I am loved

I am.

Participants’ Reflections:

  • Amazing reading. I could see the image of the floating. I’m a body but not a body. I have thoughts but no thoughts. It was just beautiful.

  • I have a hard week coming up, I’ll be served divorce papers. My husband is making this ugly. I’m asking for everyone to hold me in their thoughts and prayers.

  • Reach out to community, keep breathing, you are surrounded by community

  • We're all with you. Regarding the reading, I have a question. You were underwater. Were you experiencing resistance like in real water? Or were you just there?

  • I could see I was in something, I looked up and saw the surface. My thoughts were up there passing by. I wasn’t struggling to breathe. Words are limiting. Wall.

  • There is such power doing this meditation in unity. My mind went to Rowe prayers I knew. Unity isn’t always good, there can be bad energy. But this is a safe place, where we are supporting each other, sharing. Unity helps me stay on track.

  • I sing with a women’s choir. We sing a song “I am the ocean” which talks about the ocean as beginning and as being divine.

  • We ache for you and lift you up. Think of our faces and innermost hearts being with you. Yesterday, I was reading quotes from Mother Teresa. One of them was about being a drop in the ocean. The ocean would miss us if we weren't there. We are the drops together, lovely to be floating with all of you.

  • My meditation is different every day. Your readings always focus on the right thing for me. Sometimes in the meditation, I work through feelings, or sit quietly, or pinpoint some words you said. It feels good to have this time for me before the world has me.

  • Fifteen minutes is so doable. I have struggled for years to meditate

  • In order to make the transition from meditating back to the world, after meditating, I sit in chair and set an intention to shift. It helps, and I stay there until I get antsy.
