From Song of Songs
There is one who sings the song of his soul, discovering in his soul everything – utter fulfillment.
There is one who sings the song of his people. Emerging from the private circle of his soul – not expansive enough, not yet tranquil – he strives for fierce heights, clinging to the entire community of Israel in tender love. Together with her, he sings her song, feels her anguish, delights in her hopes. He conceives profound insights into her past and her future deftly probing, the inwardness of her spirit with the wisdom of love.
Then there is one whose soul expands until it extends beyond the border of Israel, singing the song of humanity. In the glory of the entire human race, in the glory of the human form, his spirit spreads, aspiring to the goal of humankind, envisioning his consummation. From the spring of life, he draws all his deepest reflections, his searching, striving and vision.
Then there is one who expands even further until he unties with all of existence, with all creatures, with all worlds singing a song with them all.
There is one who ascends with all these songs in unison-the song of the soul, the song of the nation, the song of humanity, the song of the cosmos-resounding together, blending in harmony, circulating the sap of life, the sound of holy joy.
There is a continuous flow and it is wonderful when we live in that sort of abandonment and faith. No resistance, yet confident in those currents that will lead us where we should go, especially if the helm is the heart and the soul is guiding it. Especially if, when looking at our thoughts, we are not identified with them, yet we observe them, letting go of those linked to fears, doubts, judgments and imagination.
Thoughts … We can create many thoughts and they can create many new chains or strengthen the existing ones!
Only when we live in Presence it is like living in a house of pure crystal and those thoughts that are heavier are felt as bundles of denser energy that touch one of the glass walls and are rejected. Many thoughts come with the vibration of fear and, unless we realize that, they can permeate and completely change the state in which we live.
Living in a house of pure crystal is a blessing, it is as if we are living in continuity in a state of Harmony and Light. The weather can still change on the outside. Strong winds can make the walls vibrate as well as major hurricanes. But over time we will use the right tools so that the crystal house always remains as a harmonic case. Porous walls will allow the flow of the giving and receiving and yet they can repel and not absorb anything that is heavier.
Life becomes like a stage. Each one of us plays their own notes; the same is for nature, animals … or the wind or the sun … the sea and the lands.
Each being has a Divine Essence. We meet, reflecting each other in the smile and in the glance, in the heart and soul. There is the possibility of expanding one in the Light of the other, recognizing the intrinsic Beauty and Purity, expanding in a Light that goes beyond what is unknown and yet … Known.
The external surroundings can change,
yet Presence, Love, Joy, Harmony, Simplicity, Kindness, Faith,
exist beyond the surroundings.
I can be living in a cave or in the most amazing castle and that doesn’t create difference for what I Am.
The True Self exists beyond space and time, always Here and Real.
We are energy and everything is energy.
Everything is made up of waves of energy, from rock to light. Each vibration moves or undulates (like a wave) at a particular speed or frequency, therefore, the vibration of a rock will have a much lower frequency than the vibration of light. As everything is energy, all of our thoughts and feelings have vibrations and frequencies and have the most profound effect on our lives, and our perception of the world around us – they are our most potent creative force.
It is important to be responsible for what we are and what we project: for we attract circumstances and people depending on the energy we give out – our vibration attracts the same vibration, the closer it is to light or source, the higher the frequency and the converse is also true.
For this reason, I find it important to start the morning with the right note, smiling at the new day as a divine gift. If we start the day with gratitude this helps us to open up, to open our hearts to give and receive. It helps to harmonize our vibrations to the higher frequencies.
A harmonic music that sounds and reverberates in our hearts and in each one of our cells will be felt and perceived by the people we meet in any environment or even just when we walk down the street.
When love and harmony flow from our hearts we can see miracles all around us.
I remember one morning in New York, while I was doing my usual walk to go to work, I experienced an unforgettable moment. I was walking, present to the moment and with gratitude for the new day. At one point, near the traffic lights, I saw that something was happening that was creating disharmony. A driver was making an illegal u-turn and I observed the change of the vibration – the lowering of the frequency – within and around me, from harmony to disharmony. This perception of change came to me before it became apparent to the other drivers present at the scene. I remember stopping walking and praying for harmony, I connected to those harmonic vibrations in my heart and then consciously let them flow out and expand around me. All of this was happening in a very short period of time, in a split second, and what I noticed is that the energies worked so fast that the unexpected happened: everyone had seen what was happening but no one had honked or become negative as one would expect. All they did was to wait and accept the act of the errant driver and, shortly after, the traffic was resumed normally.
At that moment I realized, more than ever, how important it is to have the constant aim to create harmony within and allow it to expand, no matter where we are.
After that episode, every time I find myself in an environment where I feel discomfort due to the expression of negative emotions, I always pray and ask for help so that harmony can manifest. I have witnessed miracles and I treasure them in my heart.
We are responsible for what we create every day and it is important that we live every moment being ‘awake’ and not ‘asleep’.
We have to be consciously aware that every thought is a vibration, every action is a vibration. It’s up to us to choose the vibrations that we irradiate.
What is their origin? Are they coming from the light or the dark?
If they come from the Light they will allow us to live in the moment in a constructive manner … creating more Light. If they come from the darkness they will keep us anchored to something that is the opposite of construction, that is destructive … creating darkness.
