ASCENSION IN THE INHALATION & EXHALATION OF LIFE......


THE CRAMPS AND SPASMS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE BODY, AS THE AWARENESS OF THE PHYSICAL ENTITY DIMINISHES, WHILE ALL SEEMS TO FADE INTO THE BACKGROUND AND THE LIGHTS, ESPECIALLY THE COLOUR, FADE TO A BLEACHED WHITE, LIKE AN AGE OLD CARCASS, TIMELESS IN IT'S STARKNESS, A CIRCLE OF LIFE COMPLETE, WHILE THE VULTURES STAND BLOATED AS GARGOYLE SENTINELS, WAITING PATIENTLY, AS THE IMAGES BECOME MORE PROFUSE, MORE INTENSE, MORE EXPLICIT, AS THE BODY LOSES IT'S SENSORY STIMULUS FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD COMPLETELY AND RETURNS TO THE INTERNAL WOMBLIKE MAGICK OF A PLACE, THAT IS AS FAMILIAR AS THE ILLUSION OF REALITY OF THE OUTER FACADE, WHILE THE HAWKS, THE FALCONS AND THE EAGLES SWOOP DOWN IN A FLYPAST OF GRACIOUSNESS AND REVERENCE, WHILE ALL THE TIME, THE IMAGES AND PERCEPTIONS OF WHO ONE ONCE WAS DIMINISH AND THE SOUND OF THE BEAT OF THE WINGS IS ACCENTUATED IN THE REALITY OF THE NOW, WHILE WITH EACH HEARTBEAT AND EACH FLAP OF THE WINGS, THE ENERGY OF SELF RISES FROM THE GROUND, BEING LIFTED IN THE UPDRAFT OF SPIRIT AND A THOUGHT, OF THE PLACE OF FEAR AND DARKNESS, WHICH WAS THE REALITY, IS NOW BUT A DISTANT MEMORY, WHICH FADES AWAY, AS IF IT HAD NEVER EXISTED AND THE BODY FEELS A CUSHION OF FEATHERS UNDERNEATH IT, WHILE FEATHERS OF A GOLDEN ENERGY CARESS THE BODY, HEALING IT AND EXTENDING THEIR ENERGY WITH A TINGLING SENSATION, WHICH IS THE FIRST PHYSICAL SENSATION FELT IN THE ASCENSION, WHILE THE SMOKE OF A DISTANT FIRE FUNNELS UP TO ENGULF THIS VISION AND IN THE LACK OF VISION, THE BIRDS ARE THERE AND CAN BE SENSED AND A WHITENESS ENVELOPS ALL, WITH A SMELL SUDDENLY REGISTERING OF FRAGRANT LEAVES AND HERBS AND ALL THE TIME THERE IS THE RHYTHMIC BEAT OF THE WINGS AND THE HEARTBEAT SYNCHRONISED INTO A UNITY, WHICH IS ACCEPTED AS WHAT WAS AND NOW IS, WHILE IT SEEMS LIKE THIS BEAT IS THE ONE THING WHICH IS ABLE TO CAUSE THE ASCENSION OF SELF AND THEN SOFTLY AT FIRST, THERE IS THE CHANTING AND AS THE GAP OPENS UP IN THE SMOKE, THERE BELOW STAND A MASS OF HUMANITY, RAISING THEIR HANDS UP AND DOWN IN TIME TO THE BEAT AND AS THE VISION UNFOLDS, THIS MASS OF INDIVIDUALS BECOMES ONE MASS AND TAKES THE SHAPE OF AN EAGLE AND SLOWLY AT FIRST, THE WINGS BEGIN TO FLAP AND THE MASS ARISES FROM THE GROUND AND WITH MINIMAL ENERGY AND EFFORT, RISES SLOWLY , THEN FASTER AND FASTER, WHILE I FEEL THAT I AM MOVING DOWNWARDS AND THE MASS MOVES UPWARDS, BLOCKING OUT THE SUN, AND AS I LOOK UPWARDS, THE MASS BECOMES ONE WITH THE SUN AND I COME TO REST ON THE GROUND, WITH AN AWARENESS RENEWED AND AS I OPEN MY EYES AND RETURN TO THE PHYSICALITY OF THE MOMENT, I OPEN MY CLENCHED FIST, TO FIND A GOLDEN FEATHER IN THE INSIDE OF MY PALM AND AS I LOOK IN AMAZEMENT, IT SLOWLY ASCENDS UPWARDS AND DISAPPEARS, WHILE MY EYES LOOK DOWNWARD AND IN THE INSIDE OF MY PALM IS THE IMPRINT OF THE FEATHER AND IN THIS MOMENT I REALISE THE TRUTH OF THE RELEVANCE OF ALL IRRELEVANCE AND THE POSSIBILITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES THAT EXIST, WHICH DEPEND ON THE PERCEPTIONS AND THE CHOICES EMBEDDED IN ALL WHO WALK THE PATH AND EXTEND THEMSELVES, FULFILLING THEIR OBLIGATIONS IN THE INHALATION AND EXHALATION OF LIFE.

Hello Derik,
I felt my soul lift up with golden light as I read this. I felt a stirring. A flutter. Your words moved me.

Been journeying to new places and finding lot's of information. I hope to get caught up with my blogs.But one things at a time.

Take care.

~Namaste
