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
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.
