I do not know about the rest of you but I have always felt as a foreigner on this planet. The inhabitants, their customs, rituals, and ignorant cruelty leave an empty space which longs for fulfillment. Although our Love, our beauty, our ability to change and grow and learn, finds me feeling proud to be human and in Love with our species and Earth. Apprehensively, I must acknowledge that I have been that cruel being I'd like to keep at a distance as well. But all the better. If I'm to fully appreciate God's Love affair with humanity I must know the story through and through. Without a doubt I've danced the dance upon this spinning ball on more than one occasion and in more than a few roles. Good, Bad, Ugly... perhaps this time I can be the Wise.
The echo of eternity does reverberate in the deepest place in heart and mind and it is this promising impression which reminds me that I've yet to clearly experience Home as it truly Exists. Is it here on Earth, or somewhere far off in space time? Is it another reality or dimension? I do not know exactly. But what I DO know is that it IS just there, and beckons each and every one of us to return.
Since I was young I've had a vision, a photograph of memory if you will. It is literally a 2 second glimpse from start to finish and it holds firm in recollection as it did the first day I remember seeing it as a little boy. I believe I had awoken in bed from a dream but this fleeting glance of sublimity was captured in my minds eye forever.
I was flying there, but not necessarily as the human body I've come to know as me. How I would define myself would be vaporous, a cloud, or steam, indefinable but entirely conscious. Our sensory perception would reveal no boundry in this yet at the same time an unmistakable Self-conscious "I" is there and moving in space. I'm simply the etheric me, I suppose I would say.
A vista opens up before me and save the limitation of language it IS a splendid one indeed. Imagine a pure ocean so blue the bluest eyes of the greatest Lover your Soul has known could not even compare. So sparkling clear even the light above is jealous of it's own rays which enjoy the carress of the waters pristine surface. If you'd spent 1000 lifetimes a creature living upon an arid desert with no hydration, simply one sip from this ocean would see you willing to endure 1000 more for another!
And then, there appears a majestic island. Yes it is coming to me now. There are rain forests upon this very Earth which can take anyones breath away but the flourishing vision before me is the mold from which these were cut. The deep green foilage of Ireland sings the praises of the mesmerizing forest I'm looking upon. The oceans waves lazily romance the crystalline sands of a beach who stands as the quintissential red carpet into a paradise yet unexplored. I could elaborate for Aeons upon this 2 second window of time and this is only the entrance! I'm glad I have forgotten the rest. Just like discovering lost treasure there is only a faint joy in it's rememberance, but an exceeding delight in the present moment it is found again.
I can almost taste the entire picture and drink of it's beauty right now as I'm writing these words. There isn't any piece of this picture my etheric body cannot immediately know by simply desiring to. There is a deeper communication between all things of creation that we have simply forgotten amidst our laws of gravity and identifying as a singular locality. So far as I know when helium and oxygen meet in our atmosphere they do not stop or get out of each others way. They do not know themselves as individuals which must be careful lest they bump into and offend the other. Rather, they as if become One and where oxygen begins and helium ends is impossible to tell. So close are they that each and every molecule comprising the whole dance together seamlessly only to pick up with the next partner molecule in time to Infinity's music.
Each of us as percieved individual entity might know any other we wish to and the only way I can visualize this begins how I've described above. It ends with creation bearing witness to a True friendships beginning woven together by two communing in the One. These are laying the foundation of a New and exciting world to come Eternally and forevermore. This is Romance. This is Love. This is the glint in Infinities eye as it innocently looks upon itself. This is a sliver of the knowledge of Brahman... or so I've heard. ;)
MSI's Second Thunder inspires me thus. Gonna go read some more... heck I haven't even gotten to my favorite part of the book yet, ha!
