(A word or two can touch a point within me that calls out for a response. Call it “inspiration,” or whatever, but I feel moved to express deep and personal feelings when I am in a “mindfulness” state of being. Is this what some call a “working” or “writing meditation?” I don’t really know, but I feel positive in performing pieces of prose or poetry prudently per post. Thanks Ashaglen!)Posted by ashaglen on November 9, 2009
“. . . Giving of myself simply because it is born within me . . .”
Ashaglen,Isn’t it something to come to a realization of some universal truth through the process of meditation? I mean, take your quote I reproduced above. You are “giving” because it is “born within” you.You, me us . . . we all have it “born” within us, and all it takes for us to see it manifest is to stop our runaway thoughts and “be in the moment.”
Take time to see and feel the moment when our inner Self projects love or gratitude or joy, simply because we gave our selves a “taste” of our child, a picture of our child. (For me, I get to stretch out a warm feeling of love when I think of my dog “Willie” whose been dead for some 20 years but visits me routinely in my dreams.)
I am able to spread out that positive feeling and build upon it with another positive emotion, let’s say “awe,” until I get to a point when I am building blocks of goodness higher and higher within my Self.
Whoa, did not want to go this far, but reading you inspired me to take a chance that you might find some interest in how you touched this meditator.
