Something quite peculiar has been going down these past few weeks. Different people, in different situations have been trying to convey a similar message. One that, to be quite frank, I haven't been too keen on receiving. One that might require less/more consideration; I'm not sure yet.
I think we can all agree that Earth doesn't take orders from nobody. It doesn't rush, and it doesn't err. It doesn't ask for advice, or validation. It simply knows. It knows what needs to be done and in its own sweet time, it does just that.
I believe that we, as earthlings, are similarly wired; to simply know.
So when someone tells me that I should be "following" a certain x or y spiritual master, I don't like it all too much, you see.
1. Water covers about 70 percent of the earth’s surface. Also, water makes up about 70 percent of the human body.
2. Six elements make up almost 99 percent of the human body’s mass: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus. All of these elements – and several others – make up the earth as well.
3. Global warming? Clearly, a form of inflammation.
We are products of an All Knowing, All powerful Source; and yes, while we are here to support each other in our journey to self-realization, there is a certain door of knowledge that only we can enter. Did Jesus, the Buddha, Prince, or your preferred figure of inner mastery live by a manual? No. They were guided by their innate sense of knowing; they had an immaculate connection to their inner Voice and our Source. And indeed, for their dedication to their Truth, they had to pay a price.
And that is why we meditate, ladies and gents; to be like the EARTH. To understand the whens, hows, and whys that decorate and make our lives.
Take a 5 minutes and observe how you too are made out of earth (grounded), water (flexible), air (vastness) & fire (passion).
.... Just admit it, you're quite something!
