Deep within each of us is our place where no disturbance can exist. Like the roots of a tree below the ground, secure and steady, our deepest roots channel our life sap of vital energy into our limbs for interaction in the world.
Our deepest roots are our natural state of peace and bliss. In meditation and quiet introspection we bore deeply into our internal-eternal Source - consciously widening those life-giving channels of nourishing contentment and bliss.
The opening channels allow us to integrate peacefulness and balance into our fast-paced living, taking the edge off our worldly state of frenzy.
Incorporating lovingness into meditation and introspection opens wide the access to our even deeper universal roots, where we are all interconnected.
Ever-flowing harmony and love energize us completely, allowing us to extend the branches of our arms into the many leaves of action in our life.
Meditation for Reflection
Sitting or lying still begin even breathing to calm the mind and relax the body - count 1 breathe in, count 2 breathe out, continuing for a minute or more.
Think about one of the key phrases from your reading: Meditation, Lovingness, Integrate, Harmony.
What is your understanding of the idea it represents? How could you apply it to your life?
Take time for a visualization of a forest of many kinds of trees; each with their own shape and beauty.
In your vision let your mind zoom into the ground and what do you see? A fully intertwined mass of roots - tendrils interwoven and sharing resources of earth and water.
Now change your vision so you see the people of our planet like the trees and the roots intertwined in harmony sharing the resources, the living spirit within every morsel of mother earth.
Open your eyes and end your meditation with a deep breath and stretch!
Roots set in harmony
Hold us upright
Balanced in everyday living
