Feeling into the overall resonance/vibration of the body takes you to the threshold leading to the vast and oceanic Bliss Resonance. As I’ve mentioned many times before, it is easy enough to feel subtle vibrations/sensations in the body.
Connecting with the “Bliss Resonance” requires going slightly deeper, tuning into what, to me, sounds and feels like the distant humming or buzzing of a beehive…a gentle rumbling of sorts.
An important point here is that this “rumbling” is very quiet at first, more like an intimation of a vast inner space. I reiterate this because it is easy for the mind to seek and expect the large, “big bang” kind experience.
However, when feeling into subtle sensations, the suggestion here is to tune into the finest and usually ignored sensations that vibrate on the farthest periphery of awareness. This is not difficult…it just requires a shift in how we feel into our bodies, a different mindset regarding sensations that we normally do not pay much attention to.
I believe one of the most important mindset shifts is this: There are no insignificant sensations! Any sensation, when felt and tracked to its underlying resonance, can take you beyond the threshold of familiar vibrations, connecting you with the infinitely subtle and yet primal Bliss Resonance!
[Continued from Part V] Think of it in this way: when first learning to dance, it can be helpful to learn some dance moves, but after the initial “getting familiar” period of learning, it is not satisfying to remain in the superficial levels of technique. Going deeper and deeper into the subtleties of movement and rhythm, technique can be released and one can surrender to the natural power and splendor of how life force wishes to dance in the body.
Similarly, meditation technique is helpful in creating the setting for connecting with the subtleties of the life force, but technique does not necessarily lead to a deeper and deeper release/surrender to the flow of the underlying current.
The inner prompts of life force moving through the body and spinal centers may guide/suggest a very different posture, movement of body and breath, position of eyes, focus of attention, etc. To rigidly adhere to meditation technique during such times can work against the very intention of your meditation practice.
In many instances, I believe the all-important “missing ingredient” of meditation practice is the simple feeling deeper and deeper into the overall sensation of the body, the resonance of all sensations felt as one vibration, one “Hum” of Being.
With this particular approach, the mind maintains a fairly easy focus/concentration…as the very subtlety of the underlying “Hum” of the body and spinal centers have an innately blissful feel…and bliss is very easy to maintain one-pointed attention on!
The delicate sensations of sweetness, as felt deeply in the spine, can be gently “grabbed” or “embraced.” It is just a matter of surrendering ourselves to the delicate waves and pulsations that move rhythmically through our bodies. The process is similar to “losing” oneself in dance, a dance of “micromovements.”
In the dance of micromovements, there is an inner allowing/surrendering to the body’s natural knowing of how to move in resonance with the subtle currents that can fairly easily be felt in the spine. There is an intuitive knowing of how to create “energetic locks” in the body that “holds” life force and allows the buildup of what is like an “elixir of bliss” in the spine. This elixir can be thought of as a distillation of essence that builds up to the point of overflow.
The overflow of this elixir creates an upliftment of body/mind/psyche…a sense of enchantment with All Things!
The day-to-day challenges of your life are the very patterns that the Universe is asking you to face in order to proceed to the next steps in your evolution. The quick and easy fix of just settling for worldly solutions will not work for you. Your test lies in surrendering to the Cosmic Stream that is asking for a total letting go of self into its ego-shattering current.
What does that mean? I still need to live and survive in the world with all of its financial and physical demands.
The kind of surrender we ask is for a releasing of all that you hold on to regarding who you think you are in relation to the constraints and limitations imposed upon you by the cultural and religious conditioning of a world that continues to keep most souls in places of “stuckness.” We are asking you to expand the “knowing” of yourself as an energetic being; not just thinking and mentally understanding this, but truly feeling this.
You are light! All is light! A great influx of Cosmic Vibration is moving through your planet now. Feel this! Experience this! It is all vibration, a distillation of energy and as such you can instantly change the circumstances of your world by changing its energetic patterns.
The dream you believe to be so real is but energy solidified into the hardboiled existence of pain and separation. Awaken now! Experience now the waves of feelings that flow into the oceanic knowing of Self as the Cosmic Dreamer. You are the Infinite Spirit that allowed itself to be stuck for just a little while upon the island of forgetfulness! The Great Awakening is happening though, and soon enough the sleep of ages will fall from your eyes and you will marvel at the wondrous journey of Love that Spirit intended all Creation to partake in through the Cosmic Dream! Wake up now!
