We are thinking too small. We erroneously exclusively identify
ourselves and who we are with our body. In reality we are consciousness
infinitely connected to everything in the universe. Our body is made of
billions of cells that have come together to form a unit. The cells
grow, divide, wither, shed. They are in constant movement. Uncountable
armies of molecules merge, interact, transfer chemicals and information
to form and reform the cells in a neverending dance. The molecules are
made up of atoms that arrange and rearrange in trillions of
combinations, and they in turn are made of quarks that are made up of
pre-atomic energy that has been in movement since the Big Bang.
This is the same energy that forms all life, as well as the
elements that form the earth itself. All life on this planet is in
movement. The continents that comprise and contain all the land masses
are in constant motion as are the oceans. The earth itself is spinning
around itself as well as in an orbit that pulls on and is pulled by its
sister planets and their moons as it and they revolve around the sun.
The whole solar system is revolving as it spins around our galaxy. The
Milky Way and its one hundred billion stars are moving in concert with
billions of other galaxies that are traveling around our local galactic
cluster and the billions of galactic clusters are combining and
intersecting to form uncountable super galactic clusters that make up
our ever expanding Universe.
We are not apart from this evolution and movement. We are a
part of it. The same pre-atomic, quarkian, atomic, molecular, cellular
structures that makes up everything in the Universe makes us up.
Feel this expansive unity. Know your "body" to extend beyond
the sack that contains your organic cellular structure. You are atomic,
pre-atomic, interactive infinitely, eternally, with everything
Sit in a comfortable position in a quiet place with your mind
and body as calm as possible. Visualize your sub-atomic and universal
connectiveness and every level between. Try not to comment, compare,
analyze, critique or classify. Just visualize. If you must, to quiet
your mind, repeat "I am infinite", "I am immortal", or any other phrase
or word that has an uplifting significance to you. Practicing this
meditation will free you from the bondage of ego driven separatist
identification and lead you to reunion with your spiritual birthright --
liberation of your consciousness. Merge with it all, all of the time
and experience a universal perspective of infinite knowledge and bliss.
