ALCHEMY OF EARTH – PART 3 – UNITY – BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
Our work in the Elements, Kriya, Alchemy and Tantra of the Light is experiential.
It is a continuum of compassionate wisdom and bliss over many lives which is to be shared and is a collective work, meaning it is your wisdom as much as it is mine that has co-created and contributed to this, with a view to liberating all beings.
I am You and You are Me.
Arise as a divine being.
That is our truth.
Returning to each other, to the earth and to our bodies means a return to peace. There are times when all of us feel tired or stressed and we lose touch with ourselves and each other, things come out wrong, we mess up and create misunderstanding. We have simply gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. It happens to all of us, from the greatest gurus and teachers to me and you. Yogananda described a time in his life when he was beset by depression after his mother died and the Dalai Lama was struck by anxiety for his people after the Chinese invasions which manifested in terrifying dreams. At such times we can simply return to the body and take time out in silence and stillness, in the warm embrace of nature or a good hot bath, follow our breath and bring the mind, body, heart, soul and breath all together, and they will become one. We sit in this warmth, just as we did as a child beside the fireplace in winter, while a cold wind raged outside and our mother fed us hot soup.
“Breathing in, I calm my body
Breathing out, I smile at my body”
It is that simple.
It doesn’t have to be on retreat or in a meditation hall in the Himalayas of Tibet.
We come back to ourselves to make ourselves whole again.
We are the Mother feeding ourselves the hot soup of peace and love.
Contact with life is truly profound when we are truly ourselves.
The Bamboo Forest Zen Master said “Everything I touch becomes new”
So let us come back to ourself and touch everyone we meet with the freshness and newness of peace and love.
When we are not truly ourselves in the present moment there may be a beautiful blue sky but we don’t really see it.
The wholeness of ourselves is the first, deepest and most profound contact we can ever make with life. By conscious breathing we bring ourselves home, to the mind, body, heart and soul.
Renewing ourselves in this way, we see everything else anew.
We become the Bamboo Forest Zen Master, empty yet full, ancient yet new, still yet active.

“Breathing in this breath of love, I breathe in peace.
Breathing out this breath of love, I give my peace to you.”
When we are truly ourselves, in that moment of presence and awareness, in the movement and stillness in our breathing, we are a Bodhisattva, Archangel and Elder.
The mind and heart can go in a thousand directions
But on this beautiful path in life I have chosen to walk in peace
With each step a gentle wind blows
With each step a flower blooms
I often mindfully and heartfully walk watching the flowers bloom under my feet.
A very simple beautiful practice to try at any time of your day.
Be the Christ, Krishna, Buddha, the Divine Mother Within.
You carry this flame of enlightenment within you.
Let it shine.
Gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi swāhā
