I entered the world of the Mystic while sitting on a bench at the foot of my bed in what seems a lifetime ago. It lasted only a moment. But, the realization struck me like a bolt of lightning.
There is no there — there!
It’s right now.
What I had hoped for all of my life — to be on the path to the goal I believed best for me and my future. It’s here now. The path itself is the goal. I simply had to “open” to it. Live it now. Not in some future. Not a tomorrow. But, now at the age I presently exist!
This is the Heaven, the Nirvana, the Utopia the Holy Ones preached about, but only delivered into an independent state, a state of consciousness few could visit without letting go of . . . old expectations . . . past desires . . . grasping at the future. It’s within our sight. Within our understanding. It is . . . within . . . me. It’s within . . . you.
Find the joy now, not after death as we know it.
Start with being “born anew” into a reality that is, always has been, and always will be.
I smile with madness, and feel drunk with ecstasy. I’m high from this new view given me of life. Giddy as a child receiving a gift I always wanted but never found beneath the tree, during the Holy Days or on a Greek Name Day.
Thank you Universe. Thanks for being part of me, as I of you.
Thanks for Oneness.
