A long time after we begin to grow curious about ourselves, we are sub-atomic particles, perhaps electrons, maturing to then inhabit an entire atom, further on, to a molecule of… water, a warm excitation rising to form with unimaginable numbers, a great cloud above the earth, and then we fall, for thousands of feet as rain down upon a seed in the dirt, sprout, live and die, next to become an egg-formed animal, then onto four legs, a live birth, growth of fur, bone, and warm blood.
Up we then spring into the bodies of a human being, and continue our revolution through time, lifetime after lifetime and the steady, painful and critical accumulation of human knowledge, experience, and eventual wisdom.
As we gradually refine ourselves through trial and error, we gain spiritual Self knowledge and the growing certainty that all we have experienced, we have been before – all the depth, all the breadth, all the light, all the memory – of the hollow of a tree stump, charcoal black from fire, to the same vastness of the stars and galaxies burning in every direction of the night sky. All of it becomes us, and we joyfully unite with all of life, past and present, timelessly, endlessly.
Now, circling back for another look, we glimpse our origins, what we were, what we have become – perhaps taking notice of molecular motion as it builds and sustains manifestation in space-time, or dwelling in primordial Samadhi for a bit, our solid and ineffable foundation, forged into success in whatever earthly endeavors we undertake next. The spiritual journey completes us, even as it beckons us ever further into its charms, puzzles, and mysteries.
Where is this leading? Who has set in motion this upward spiral of knowledge and experience, of expansion and responsibility, of success and growing Bliss? Growing from the nascent awareness of an electrical charge, to Brahman, what happened?
If there were a scale large enough, we could place all of our past, lifetimes and lifetimes of all kinds, on one side, mountains of experience, and oceans of change, and on the other side, we stand by ourselves, solitary, and embracing Cosmic life. A perfect balance.
We complete our journey living true freedom, liberation, invincibility, and immortality, for we now begin anew as the willing and worthy servants of Mother Divine. We immerse ourselves in endless gratitude.
We now consciously live all of what She has given us, endlessly through our many lives, clothing us in form and senses, always feeding and sheltering us, allowing our continued journey across eons, in every manifestation yet deeply intimate, our essence built with one meta-thought in every mind we have ever been, to serve our Mother, in whatever capacity we can. To be good to all we have been, and fully thrive in everything we are.
We have come full circle to live Brahman, live the Reality of Cosmic Life. We now simply surrender, surrender, surrender, to Mother Divine, as She continues to care for and nurture us, as She always has, and always will. 🙂
