Surrendering to the Cosmic Dance, Part II

Surrendering to the lead of the “Cosmic Dancer” is similar to the idea of “losing oneself in dance.” Now, for purposes of going deeper and deeper in meditation, it just requires feeling into the subtle sensations of the body…while sitting still.

At a certain point, you may notice how the body will automatically and spontaneously adjust in “micro-movements.” Even with intention to sit perfectly still, you might observe how the body is constantly moving, adjusting in very slight, hardly noticeable increments as a way to maintain balance and to maintain erect posture.

The suggestion here is to observe and feel deeply into these micro-movements that we normally pay little attention to. Follow to their source what is activating or “nudging” the body to adjust.

This develops a fine awareness and attunement with subtle currents and waves of Life Force that move through the body. This is not difficult to do! It just requires noticing what we would normally not pay much attention to.

Going deeper in your connection with the subtle currents in the spine and body, again, is like learning to surrender to the dance…to the lead of the Cosmic Dancer!

This requires feeling just below the surface of familiar sensations…and then going slightly deeper. This develops a sensitivity to subtle vibrations…and ultimately to primal waves and pulsations of the Life Force, the awakening Kundalini!
