Whenever I start feeling physically drained, emotionally pressured, or mentally sluggish; there is a miraculous override that sets me free. Somewhere deep within each of us exists a union with the universe. It could be thought of as an eye, a window, or a worm hole. For some, the eye is closed, curtains drawn, or worm hole sealed. This connecting point, when accessed, links us to the infinite pool of coexisting possibilities within the universal consciousness of light. From this place, this Pure Land, a penetrating light forever shines, warmth emanates, and all things exist for us to be. It is there within each of us, eager to awaken; and through its power we transcend most human things.
Having experienced numerous traumas in my life thus far, not the least of which involved the insidious theft of my vision; I discovered ways to cope, survive, and grow. One such method, remembered vaguely from my childhood, started as a flicker and, with hope and practice, became my winsome world. When reaching that point of overwhelm, where it all just seemed too much; there was that momentary flicker of something more. It was bright light and warmth, it was comfort and hope, it was something bigger than the things my mind was trapped in. It felt so blissful, pulled me out of downward spirals, and lifted me to places filled with light. The only problem, at the time, was that it would pop in for an instant, and then be gone.
So my goal became to find it at will and lengthen its duration to my life. I keenly focused on subtle similarities, found them, linked them; and was soon able to find this place at will. Then I worked to extend the length of its presence in my life. I did this through meditation, writing poetry and music, and focusing on being there with all I had. Eventually it happened. One morning I moved into this place, like a rainbow in paradise; and since then have never left its glowing shores.
I keep as much of myself immersed in it as possible, pulling only the bare minimum out into the material world; only what is needed to connect with it and grow. When life happens, and I feel physically drained, emotionally pressured, or mentally sluggish; I retreat into its magic, and it melts away. My fatigue turns into focused energy, the pressure becomes calmness, and the fuzziness transforms to sharp and clear. Of all the things that have helped me deal with life’s challenges, beyond my mother’s love and father’s care; this method does the most, so sweet and rare.
