I like to walk about among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty.–George Santayana
Wake up, inspired, words bolting,
Brushing, touching quickly embracing
Tumbling into deep pools; forgetfulness.
Now free, liberated, space enveloping,
Hushing, silencing forever letting go
Falling from a height; emptiness.
We leap, fly, traverse, grasping
Gasping, inhale sharp, exhale slow
Sighing with love; gratefulness.
Liberation is the mind at rest, the mind working, the mind generating inspiring motivating but no longer in control, unattached to expectation, outcome—simply performing in such a way that experience happens or does not. We smile knowing that whatever occurs is the result of nothing that I do. I have stepped into my Self, in other words realized that, I am.
There is something about new life entering, flowers emerging, blue skies and the open vistas of spring unfolding before us. We hug their shapeliness with adoration, our eyes riveted to scenes of our own creation. Love flows and ebbs, gathering it self ‘round corners then, leaping and crashing down upon rocky patches, rough-hewn and ragged shorelines that spontaneously burst forth with exquisite beauty and infinite vitality. May is the month in which we summon, from places deep and unlimited, the right to be whatever and everything we choose. Expression is set loose upon the land to have its way with the unknown destiny and each of us rejoices. Is there anything we cannot accomplish? Everything is available to us. Nothing is denied.
We have arrived, in the 5th month of 2013, at a greater understanding of our self that moves us beyond comparison and relativity. No longer are we something in relation to something else as it is all me. The Osho Zen Tarot deck is succinct in its purpose and as clear as the mind can be. The card entitled Understanding exemplifies the dissolution of limitations and the freedom to be not separate from.
Having risen out of the barrier represented by identification with physical form and reality we flow with what is and find the Self in the midst of endless potential. Our New Vision (XII Major Arcana from the Osho Zen deck) embraces the essential—liberated, we dance united and rest in truth Beyond Illusion ( XX Major Arcana from the Osho Zen Deck).
The number 5 relates to change, relates to human creation, manifestation that occurs in physical reality along with association with our 5 senses that we experience as heightened when we have no beliefs that we are limited; that all things are possible—we experience Grace.
We breathe deeper in May as numerous scents fill the air and an equal variety of sounds. Fruit tree blossoms and jasmine are just a few of the many aromas that we encounter while entertained by the persistent songs of birds. Yes, we have 5 senses and in May they are marvelously indulged. The Earth is honored and shown appreciation perhaps more than in any other month. Her gifts are many and we are exceptionally fortunate to have everything required to appreciate them. We have much to be grateful for including the freedom to know that.
Enjoy this month in health, happiness and harmony!
