I’ve decide to do something daring and I really don’t know if I can do it. I don’t say that about much. I have promised to blog about something deep each day. Oh but that is not all I’m promising all this when I’m leaving with Keith for almost a week to go back to North Carolina. I have no idea what Internet access will be like. I have no idea of anything.
That is the point of this blog. Emptiness: When you really get empty it may be scary but empty holds the potential for everything. Empty is scary because of the vastness. Empty is scary because of it’s unfamiliarity. Empty is scary because we equate it to not enough and starving. Empty is quite the opposite of that. It is vast and vastness scares us all. It’s the want it, push it away. Want it, thwart it. Want it, run from it full on. Want it and if you and me are willing to dance with emptiness it will enfold us. Yes enfold not engulf us.
This morning Keith and I were meditating together. We were doing Long Ek Ong Kars (if you don’t know what that is connect with me you need to) and I must have stopped the external chant but it was still doing me. It was so profound I could neither move, nor make a sound. I just became the sound. I just was and was not at the same time. It wasn’t a matter of liking it or even loving it. I became it. I was empty the sound was everything. Yes words seem empty trying to wedge them into spaces that give you the vastness of the eternity of that sound. All I can share is go to www.spiritvoyage.com get some chanting music that will uplift and feed you soul then meditate with it.
We are only here to feed our souls and touch the souls of others. All else is just filler. Filler can be fun but know it is filler not the gift. Your gifts must be brought through. Become empty, Become vast. Become essential.
