A Tantra Day Dream… You are sitting by a silently flowing stream in the countryside. It is spring and life is wet and green? Resting on a rock, the sights and noises of the streaming water start to work their mysterious way into your nervous system.
Gradually, with the simple repeating of the water’s song and the harmonious appeal of the natural environments, the thousands of electronic impulses of your brain begin to discharge into the tension-absorbing air.
All of the issues, problems and projects, which had actually filled your mind to breaking capacity begin to disappear. There is nothing to attempt to determine now, absolutely nothing to choose.
The flowers calmly console you with their perfect peace and harmony. The fresh air tingles in your lungs and your head ends up being clear. You feel somehow sedated, as if the forces of nature have actually conspired to put you to sleep – to put you at ease.
The wind massages your body with caresses of coolness as the sun unties your muscles with permeating warmth.
There is absolutely nothing to do, no place to go and nothing to think of. Just lie back and take in the tranquil vibrations which stream into every part of your being, whispering, “be at peace, relax my buddy, all is well now”.
A scrumptious sleep falls upon you; not really sleep however a half-conscious-half-sleep state, in which the trees, sounds and breeze start to come within and combine with all of the thoughts and feelings. It is as if the door of your mind has actually been opened and all of those perceptions, conversations and actions lying unresolved, floating at numerous depths in the sea of the mind begin to float upwards and outwards.
Truth now is a mix of the external and inner.
The peace and security of being in the womb of nature permits us to give up to the wind, water and sun, while the earth-draws out our stresses and disappointments. We swim semi-consciously at the level where the conscious blends into the unconscious.
We dance in our sea of consciousness, sometimes floating approximately the surface capturing the feeling of the breeze, or the warmth of the sun. Then we dive downward into a stream of upward floating ideas, images, sounds – all the removed refuse from unsettled problems and worried stresses.
We see them as they float by and then dive much deeper sensing by now there is something at the bottom of the sea, which is appealing to us.
Sometimes we get captured by an upward floating sensation of concern, bitterness, an attachment or an image, and before we know it, we are at the surface area again believing, wondering, worrying, being rocked by the waves of accessory.
However the dance goes on, we start to sink once again, for by now we see that we can not really dive since diving is too intense – there is too much effort – we get connected too easily on upward floating trash.
We naturally find out the dance of the water, sinking, viewing, letting go, being continued the vertical currents of fresh water from the depths of our awareness, like a seagull with wings spread moving the air currents streaming versus it without a motion, without an effort, letting the air do all the work.
By this time, we are no longer worried about where we are going. We have gone beyond the levels of stress release, previous wreckage of old memories, traumas, relationships and failures.
The water becomes very clean, extremely still, very tranquil.
We are coming to the source of our life current, the spring of pure awareness. Our consciousness is restored as we have cleared the way for a burst of fresh energy to stream up cleansing the sea of consciousness, restoring the mind, giving new life to every cell of our brain.
If we do not become enamored by the experience of light, by the happiness of this energy which charges through our system, then we might sink a little much deeper into the vast nothingness from which the spring of life circulations.
Here there is not even energy; no body, no mind, no light, no sound – absolute nothingness – overall vacuum – just remarkable prospective un-manifest Divine Consciousness, from which all life and material development flows.
Coming Back to the Surface
The noise of chirping birds greets you as you slowly drift to the surface area. The branches dancing in the wind wave “hello”. The noises of bugs buzzing and water splashing salute you with a “welcome back buddy, you become part of us now”.
It takes a while to keep in mind where you are. You were just gone 20 minutes, but it appears you have actually been in this spot all your life. The mind is clear, renewed and in today.
There is absolutely nothing to take however do off your clothes and swim. Have you ever been to this quiet stream in the countryside?
The majority of everybody has – either to a stream, river, mountain, forest, or sea. And how well and revitalized we feel when we return. In some way whatever is more alive, more unified.
It might not take long, nevertheless, to discharge all that energy and clarity. When again we become upset, nervous and bored.
Can we go to the stream every day? It definitely would be great, and life would be much less complicated. Of course for most of us it is totally unwise in terms of time, cash and availability of such locations – specifically to those of us who live in the city.
Well, Mother Nature has a trick for us. We do not need to go anywhere at all. The stream of life, that location of peace and source of harmony, strength and understanding – lies best inside every one people.
What is meditation? It is nothing more than visiting this stream daily. Merely it is the sinking dance into our sea of awareness, releasing the submerged tensions and coming to the point of inner stillness where
We are coming to the source of our life current, the spring of pure awareness. Our awareness is restored as we have cleared the method for a burst of fresh energy to stream up purifying the sea of consciousness, restoring the mind, offering new life to every cell of our brain.
You were just gone 20 minutes, however it appears you have actually been in this area all your life. Can we go to the stream every day? The stream of life, that place of peace and source of consistency, strength and understanding – lies best inside every one of us.
