As I Reveal My Mystery: A Meditation on Being

Source

“Be still and know that I am God.” –Psalm 46:10

.

As I reveal my mystery

In the eternal Now

Be still.

.

A few seconds

Upon rising

In the soft light of dawn

.

I am

A nurturing presence

Loving you

Enfolding you

In my soft embrace.

.

A few seconds

To sleep

Before you dream

At dusk

.

I am

A sweet, gentle presence

Assuring you

Keeping your heart warm

Even as you sleep.

.

A mother’s touch

An infant feels

Can you feel

As the infant?

.

Can you feel

As the mother?

.

A cat waits

To catch the mouse

Can you watch the mouse hole

As the cat?

.

Can you wait on the cat

As the mouse?

.

Asking for a morsel

A dog licks

Its tongue in cheek

.

It’s hungry,

You feel.

You give her bread.

.

How does the lily

Simply

Know how to spin

Its fabulous skin?

.

How does the redwood tree

Without struggle

Know how to grow

Glorious heights unknown?

.

How does the bird

Grow, go

Learn to how to fly,

Be free

Where it goes?

.

How do you know

When to eat

When to sleep

When to poo

And to pee?

.

All through these mysteries

.

Listen to your body

Feel what it feels

It is in the Now,

.

The infinite moment

The receptacle,

The fountain of all possibilities

Beyond imagination,

Unthinkable.

.

Love,

Faith,

Joy,

Peace …

.

All in the Now.

Mostly unnoticed,

In busy minds

Trapped in thinking.

.

As I reveal my mystery

In the eternal Now

Be still.

.

It may sound familiar

Nothing really new

To you

.

I am you

You are me.

.

All beings

In One Being,

All wisdom is shared

.

One

Love,

Faith,

Joy,

Peace …

Through you

And within you.

.

Being,

Being still,

You are love

You are faith

You are joy

You are peace

Overflowing,

.

Until we meet again

To reveal my next mystery

.

I am the eternal Now,

Be still.

.

.

Excerpt from Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now”, Section “The Creative Use of Mind”

“If you need to use your mind for a specific purpose, use it in conjunction with your inner body. …. We could say: don’t just think with your head, think with your whole body.”

Nice little meditation that. I see that it is coming from a 'christian place' so to speak but as a non-believer, I can still value the essence of stillness and the simple appreciation of being.

It starts with a quotation from the Book of Psalms but really ends up pointing to something that there is in common with simple reality. But that seems to be the nature of these mystical traditions, they move beyond the limitations of religious dogma to some kind of existential boundlessness. A sense of numinous reality.

I have that same experience without the religion. Science takes me there. Really.

Thanks for honoring the hub with your awesome comment, whowas! For that, the hub has earned the more thought-provoking version of the title that it now has.

Indeed, Being, in touch with stillness and simple reality, simply experiences.

Religion dogmatizes; science investigates and theorizes. Beyond religion and science, beyond words, there is spiritual freedom.
