I am noticing this pattern..
Recently a lot of my friends, myself included.. had very visceral, but brief, heart openings through the form of a relationship with another person. Usually from their soul group, which made the connection even more heart breaking/opening as it self destructed..
But Ram Dass says, “You had better hope your method for opening self destructs, lest you will get attached to the method.” And the method (mediation, LSD, another being) is not what this love is.. or where it comes from. The other person is just a catalyst for opening yourself up to the place in you where you already are love.
We all have this open heart space within us. An infinite power of compassion that exists in the center of our Hridayam, our spiritual heart. This energy radiates out of where the sternum is in the center of your chest. Also note the back of the body between the shoulder blades is equally important and represents the heart chakra as it relates to your past.
So the truth is, this heart opening we’ve recently experienced.. this breaking open.. was a call to transform ourselves into who we truly are.. more raw, vast, and deeper than who we thought we were.
I want to mention how important it is for us to look at ourselves and our relationships with a sense of self forgiveness. For there are lessons that we all have to learn and a very poignant way to learn them is through relationship. I am certain we were all triggered and tested in the most perfect way, cos that’s the way this game is played. It’s beautiful if you can witness your experience, and let it go as an offering. Very hard to let someone go, especially another soul that you recognize or feel a familial bond to. On a level you feel this being is somehow part of you. But in truth we are all part of each other. And what I am noticing is, the beings I meet who I recognize with my soul are the ones who break me open the most. Yet every experience has helped me to discover a little bit more who I truly am.
Which, don’t you find interesting —as an aside.. that we spend our entire lives on this planet discovering and getting to know who we truly are? It’s like the truth of our souls is revealed to us little by little over time..
I want to mention something else I find fascinating. Don’t you just love that where you end with one partner is exactly where you pick up with another? Wherever you go, there you are – is such a true statement in my experience with human relationships. Everything I am carrying is reflected right at me.. and I believe with the grace of this Merkabah Planetary Alignment, and the shadow work of 2013, we are coming closer to becoming our whole selves. And we, the Light Workers of this planet, and my friends I see beside me on this journey are being gifted with these experiences to clean up our shwag.. and purify all of our stuff so we can lead the rest of humanity by example.. and teach, “This is how I cleaned out my soul.. test by test.. forgiveness of self and others.. and this is how I said LOVE to all of it.”
So, if you recently fell in and out of love.. danced in space with another soul.. and for a moment of stillness experienced the two of you as one.. and then were asked to let it go, know that it is still truth. And if your method self destructed, please be in a state of gratitude for the truth of the experience, and for your offering. As you give away your attachment to the method, you are being honored with the gift of a more open heart.
This is where suffering becomes grace.
In truth, in devotion, in prayer, meditation, and in your spiritual practice.. This is where you really need is to devote yourself to becoming whole.. Do the things we know we need to do. Contemplate, and then Act. Follow through with them 1000%. Then in turn.. you will meet another being who is doing the same work on themselves, who is just as whole as you are. And together you will sit in your heart centers, in this stillness, and honor each other as equals.. as two parts of the One.
There is nothing more empowering, yet hard to hold onto, than that space where you are equal to another soul and they are honoring you as you are them.. and you are being in the One together. You are being in Love.
Yet what we all truly want our hearts broken open for.. is to become.. that One.. that Love.. in ourselves..
So my advice is just to surrender and to forgive. Forgive yourself, forgive others. Purify, and make yourself an offering to the fires of purification. A yoga teacher I met in New York said, “As Yogis, we are always a little bit raw. We are always pushing ourselves to become better, cleaner, more pure. Maybe in our minds we would like to be on retreat all the time, but as yogis – we never really are, we are always raw.”
So look at who you are, look at your open heart. Raw, vast, and deeper than you thought you were. Honor yourself and the process as a sacred offering as we make our ways through the shadows of ourselves in our journeys towards the light.
Dance in love, as it breaks your heart open. And offer your soul to the One.
