So often, we think that we need more to be able to heal, to do, to achieve, to accomplish, for something to work... And yet, each and every time I fall into this place, I am reminded. I am reminded that all that is needed is very, very simple. It need not be something groundbreaking or flashy or more than anything we already have. How do I heal a broken heart, a spirit that yearns to love, a body that yearns to be loved? How do I awaken the wise one within? How do I come to enlightenment? We all have had times when we felt we have never belonged here.
Of course. We are all star beings who have travelled light years and made soul contracts to be here.
Here on Earth. This beautiful, wondrous, captivating thing we call Life.
What we call Presence. A true gift. A gift that allows us to come to any space and rest our mind.
Rest. Breathe. 🕊 You are here.
There is nowhere else to be.
Breathing. Being. You are now reminded to simply sit. And have some Tea. That's where alchemy happens. 🎋 In the Taoist alchemical text, The Secret of the Golden Flower, or 金花, C.G. Jung discovered a similar shape to the mandalas his patients drew. 🏵 The golden flower came to symbolise the mystery at the seed centre as the self. In the presence of reverence, the energetics of the space where it flourishes is stellar and hugely awakening on the deepest, Soulful level. 🍃 Cha Dao leads us to empty out to fill us up. Then we empty out again. 📿 Getting out of our own way and continuously aiming to move from a Beginner's Mind. That is Cha Dao. 🌕 That is Kensho. 🕯 That is our one true nature. That is our one lifetime project － to remember our way home, to the divine, our Beloved, our one true nature, our soul, through the Way paved with stardust. 🌌 .·. Warmest Love, LiYing 💗
