Meditation

“Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.”

– Voltaire

For me there are three areas of my life where I can connect seamlessly to The Infinite: 1) while deep in meditation and bathed in “liquid gold”; 2) while walking mindfully in nature and drenched in sunbeams;  3) or while in contemplation by a great body of water, washed by its energy flow.

During those times, I am — pure and simple, unencumbered, but connected to the larger part of me, which is plugged into The Supreme One.

My ego vacates immediately, and I am now able to don a cloak of of vivid colors, surrounded by divine angels.

In this dimension, it matters not what I know or what anything means.  What’s real are the experiences, the space explorations, and the soulful discoveries beyond my finite life here on planet Earth.

What’s vital are the sensuous worlds connected to an infinite universe of higher vibrational worlds, expanding with the help of a collective force of great love, imagination, and dreaming.

Flowing on a stream of consciousness, y’all, wishing you always a life of astounding beauty, light, and love.

Warmly, Tonya
