Hold Fast to your Center

Image result for center of your being

Self-confidence means being confident that you have a self, a center. When you accept and love who you are, you have a center and your center extends out and connects with the center of the Universe. That is what I mean by Oneness. Someone who is centered and knows that he breathes with the Creator, is supremely self-confident.

A life of Simple Being means self-containment, your ability to maintain a private inner-life where you can conceive and give birth to ideas, aspirations, and personal truths without distractions infringing on you.

When you are connected to the center of your Being, you develop healthy boundaries which protect your inner-life. Personal boundaries are not for keeping secrets from loved ones; self-respecting individuals need to spend quiet time with a beautiful inner-life; this may take the form of sweet solitude in nature, artistic activities, keeping a diary, or engaging in a favorite hobby. When you maintain healthy personal boundaries, others also respect your privacy because they intuitively know that they cannot infringe.

Love yourself so we can Love you more..

Ocean–A World Unseen

================================================================

An astronaut once told me that if I ascended four miles up, I would experience blissful weightlessness.

Today, I experienced an inverse universe, a world hidden under the oceans that descends four miles down, a world that covers two-thirds of our globe. There I was weightlessly tumbling, hearing only the One Sound of Haum which might be the only music that the fish have heard.

The current carried me to a frontier where aquamarine turned to a dark blue; and that’s where the canyons and mountains suddenly dropped into depths beyond a mile.

This society of the underworld, has withdrawn itself from ours. Down here, there is a Law of Oneness in peace with no racial prejudice; in fact there are more races and rainbows swimming than any earthling has ever seen. They all swim amongst each other, inter-weaving in and out of shared castles. They nibble on corals all day as if cuisine is a life-long meditation.

Here, there are no fights nor worries of a recession, just surrendered generosity flowing out of the certainty that the Whole will provide for its parts. Each part gives itself to another so that the Whole may survive–and all this sacrifice without any funerals and grief.

There are those dressed like tigers and others wearing mud; some are long as  buses, and there is a school of shimmering minnows shaped like a spoon that a baby shark takes into her mouth. 

A plump one dressed in an evening gown of violet and blue floats to my face, mouth opening and closing, obviously conversing, but without our Iphones, us humans can’t interpret a thing..

Off the pier, a Sri Lankan fisherman dips his chocolate toes into the sea; it is in this sea-salt that he was first baptized and today as the sun goes down, his fishing line hangs on the certainty that dinner is coming…

 

God Bless,
