Everyone sees the unseen in proportion to the clarity of his heart,
and that depends upon how much he has polished it.
Whoever has polished it more sees more - more unseen forms become manifest to him. ~ Rumi


So this is what the practice of meditation and reiki means to my world. The more I do the clearer things become ... the more veils are lifted. The more veils that are lifted the less I find to worry about. The less I find to worry about, the more peaceful and centered I am. The more peaceful and centered I am ... the more peaceful and centered those around me are ... and so on and so on and so on ...

It is not to say that one must polish one's heart ... but that if one does more is reveled in the form of personal and universal collective understanding.

And now thinking about it ... I can 'see' that we are born with the shine and polished heart but that time and the toll of life's experiences tarnishes things. Some like that patina and this is wonderful [it looks beautiful on them], while others seek to have the shine back or ... in my case, are pleasantly surprised to see it having forgotten how brilliant it was in the first place. :)

Hm. Just some thoughts on a Sunday evening ...
reikiflower: (the hive/collective Stay In Touch!)
A lover asked his beloved,
Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied, I have died to myself and I live for you.
... I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only for you.
I've forgotten all my learnings, but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.
I love myself...I love you.
I love you...I love myself. ~ Rumi

And so this is how I feel and approach many in this and my world ... there are slightly different leanings toward different people ... but all in all ... I Love and I surrender myself to you and in that release I not only see/find you but I see/find my Self ...

The revelation is not to become lost or to capitulate, but to wander and marvel at the beauty One sees in the Other and know that it is reflected in the Self.

Sometimes I find my Self entwined and mixed in special blends with the others in my life [sometimes. yeah right. ok. pretty much all the time!] ... especially the Beloveds, the ones I hold most dear and treasured. The ones I am truly blessed to have with me on this life's journey.
Rumi shows the exquisite circle that love spins in us ... with the surrender of ourselves we become so much more in the release. We can become each other. Beautiful

Stay in Touch! Namaste
