Do not fear and LIVE!

From the Notebook: Sardinia, March 1st, 2015

At the seashore … sitting on rocks … on a winter day. Waves are coming close to me, touching the smooth white stones and making them roll over each other, creating the most distinctive music. I close the eyes … I feel this music inside … inside the brain … in the veins … inside the heart. Each one of the cells reverberates in this nothingness.

imageI keep writing while I am living this creation … I see three birds flying, freely in the skies. The sun is warming up this body and it is shining through the hundreds of white stones that are reflecting back its light. Creation is expressing itself in a thousand colors, sounds and scents.

My intention today was to write about fear and yet … now … in this now … I don’t have words. In a state like this, in these light vibrations, fear doesn’t exist.
Like the waves, the stones …. the three birds … I am free, free in this present moment.

Yes! We do not fear when we are present; and only when we are in presence we do truly LIVE!

While I find myself in that line of light, where in the  horizon the skies are entangled with the waters … the wind takes a flight, comes closer and whispers in my ear:

Each time that fear comes have the Courage to enter the labyrinth that fear has created, find the beginning of the thread. Step by step unveil the imagination. Keep following the thread with Patience and Faith, until you will start seeing the Light and you will find the way out, out from a labyrinth that is not real. Outside that labyrinth there is Clarity and Love and where there is Love there is not fear.’

Do not fear and LIVE!

Yes! LOVE and LIVE.

Let Go and Live

From the notebook : November 4, 2013

Here in Sardinia, in these last months, many times I found myself sitting on ancient rocks, observing the sea, remembering some words from my Teacher Mervyn.

“We are terrified of letting go, terrified of living

Since learning to live is learning to let go

Let go, Let go, Let go, or you will hurt.”

An extra effort is needed to let go of ‘things’ that can create lower energy and a state of heaviness.

We are so used of living with heavy garments, covering what in its essence wants to be ‘naked’ at the Light of the Sun!

Yes, it is so ‘strange’ for us to go around ‘naked’, to just Be, to live from the Heart, in the simplicity of its miracle, to just Be and live expanding in Love.

I have Faith that each moment comes with opportunities that are leading us to expand more in freedom, like the Ocean, like the Skies. Often the same play is repeating itself until we will be able to see more. When we are able to keep the state of Presence, living as more as possible in the lightness of the Now where everything IS, we will be guided to use the right tools and to finally cut those cords that are not allowing the letting go of things.

That ‘letting go‘ is one of the keys that can open many doors.

Sometimes, if something related to the past or future is showing itself  in the theater of the mind, I acknowledge it… I breathe… I see what I have still to learn and then I embrace it with Acceptance and Compassion. I Forgive myself and others. I drink from the chalice of Peace. With Humility I allow the letting go and the flow in the infinite Light of the Whole.

At times it is not easy with all of them, some stay longer creating friction and pain and yet…

learning to live is learning to let go!

We are energy in constant flow and when we are holding ‘things’ we are just giving attention to the mind and that mechanical part of us. More we hold of things and more energy will be stuck, stagnating, there will be no flow and opening for all other possibilities that are Here Now for Us.

I am verifying that it is not easy to keeping letting go and I am observing that at times there is a sort of ‘friction in between cells’ almost felt at the heart level and yet that friction is felt and lasting less and less as the practice goes on.

Yes, Let Go and Live.

And when the letting go happens, there is the opening of a space for stillness, silence, Peace, Love and in that state the old dies and something new is born, like in the shore… like with the waves that come and go… returning to the ocean.

And there is understanding, opening, a sense of circulation of Light and Love inside the veins… inside the cells… inside the heart.

Everything becomes lighter…

and…

I Am.

Under the Same Sun

A dance of lights and shadows on a calm winter afternoon.

Life goes on… it keeps flowing… under the same Sun.

From the sounds of New York to the deep peace of this sacred corner of Sardinia.

In this silence the sea speaks, as well as the stones and the wind.

I hear them.

They are welcoming me back to this Ancient Land.

I look up at the sky and I am thankful.

I left my Children and Friends and now I find Them here

While, sitting on a rock, I lose and find myself in the infinite horizon.

Life continues to flow at the beat of every heartbeat

With each breath of this air of light.

Far away and yet close… under the same Sun!

Sunrise in Sardinia

This morning I woke up with the desire to make the morning special!

I went out to find the Sun rising.

Amazed from the paintings in the sky and

the meditative state of the sea while the birds were singing.

My soul rejoiced with such a fulfilling breakfast!!!
