Energy Musings. Here. Now.
Today: Lost Horizons.
What are your Horizons? The things you look to? Dream about? Wish for? What fills your heart when you gaze at the open sky? at the sea? What manifests for you in that place where the Sky touches the Earth?
Right now, “horizons” are lost, in the dizzying distractions of our world and lives. You may not have even noticed. Most people haven’t. Marching stoically forward with artificial intent thinking they are ‘progressing’ but really they are just on auto pilot. How do we stop this communal madness?
Its actually quite simple: just stop. pause. Look around in every direction. See everything from a new perspective. Take in all the information around you instead of in just one direction. Maybe even seek out a place where you can physically gaze out upon the Horizon. Be with it. Breathe with it. Surrender to it. And then …. notice.
Where are you? What have you been doing? Whats happening around you? This simple act of pausing and noticing wipes everything clean so you can hopefully see more clearly. This cleansing is not a once in a while thing, but is part of our work right here right now. Actually, in every moment. But as many times as you can remember will work as a starting point!
One at a time we can shift from being “lost” to “finding our way”. With patience, persistence and compassion for ourselves and those around us. If you’re feeling the confusion of lost horizons right now, its time to take some action to bring yourself back on your rightful path.
Word of the Day: Beyul. (Tibetan: སྦས་ཡུལ, Wylie: sbas-yul) are hidden valleys often encompassing hundreds of square kilometers, which Padmasambhava blessed as refuges. They are places where physical and spiritual worlds overlap and Tantric practice effectiveness increases with multiple perception dimensions. Buddhist texts indicate beyul are discovered when the planet is approaching destruction and the world becomes too corrupt for spiritual practice.
