Why do I meditate? You should know this about me first: I believe I am one part divine, that we all are. It is that divinity in everything that connects us like a web making us infinite (if only we dare to know it). The divine is the entire universe and you and I are a part of that whole. We are the 💧in the ocean. We are the ocean.
So...I meditate because I want to have a full relationship with the divine so that I may be a full person. In becoming a full person, I am fit to serve. As I sit on my pillow, I do not wait for epiphanies. Rather, I show up and hold space without expectation. I am being the friend, the partner, the one part of a whole that I would like to show up for me. In other words, there are many occasions throughout my day when I talk with the divine. I ask for help, for guidance, for support, for strength, for courage. And as I come asking, I must also come receiving, not just what I asked for but be open to anything. So I come to the pillow everyday without expectation but opening, breathing and connecting. That showing up and doing my part to create a two way relationship means that messages and signs from the divine come throughout my day and through my dreams, not necessarily while I'm meditating. They pop into my awareness like wondrous surprises. And I receive them with child-like joy.
There are many reasons, many good reasons to meditate. This is the one that sustains my practice. Yours may be different. My hope for us all is our cup run over and as it spills it fills the cups of others. 🌺, Bella
