Meditation. Originally I had intended to post a guided meditation to your inner Temple. Yet, today I spent outside at Celebration of Life gatherings to remember the lives, the moments, and the legacies left in the physical worlds. Meditation is a perpetual quietness of the heart and soul. Many have asked me about my early morning meditations - that intentional time spent to develop the relationship one has with spirit. It is not always these intentional moments that nurture the "sparks". There are times that the most profound meditative moments occur in the midst of life.
It was shared today that we are all "sparks", we are all spirits radiating from within. Meditation is simply the time spent nurturing that spark. The more that you nurture the spark within, the brighter your love will radiate. There are many ways to nurture the spark, many ways to mediate, and many ways to radiate that big, brilliant flame of love.
Meditation. The moments gazing to the skies over the river watching the birds take flight. The moments closing your eyes and hearing an angel sing. The moments listening to another share their sorrow. The moments hearing a small child laugh in the midst of tears reminding one of the nature of life. The moments of connecting with another having never met before, but knowing deep within you are part of the same soul family. The moments listening to one reveal the intimate and raw emotions of their soul. The moments of inhaling deeply feeling alive. Each one a memory. Each one a connection with Spirit. Each one a meditation - an intentional time to develop intimate relationships.
This week as you walk the steps of your days, take intentional moments to close your eyes, inhale deeply, and experience the gift of being alive. For that is truly meditation at its very essences. The essences that connects us with all that is. So pause this week, take a moment to listen to another and connect. Pause to hear a child laugh and laugh with them. Pause to say hello, thank you, and experience your being. Pause and know that you are not only loved and give love - but that you are love.
Music is a moment to nurture that spark, so enjoy the "angel" voice that shared with the world moments this morning. http://soundcloud.com/leahclark/i-am
