Quado is the entity that first beckoned me to become a spiritual explorer. Some of you know him well. This morning, Quado asked me to share this message with you.
Today we must speak of the past, present and future. And by present, I do not mean your present circumstances, which are probably highly confusing and perhaps even overwhelming; I speak of this moment, and this moment only. The moment in which you are reading these words. This moment.
The moment in which you are drawing this one breath. This moment. And no other.
In this one moment, we release the past completely. We release the circumstances you feel surrounding you. And we certainly release the ideas and visions, hopes and dreams of the future. We let all of that go.
All that exists right now is this moment, this one, this one breath, this one flash of light.
Breathe deeply into this moment. Each breath takes you deeper.
As you go deeper into your inner sanctum, as you go deeper into the heart of the flower that is your life and beingness, breathe in the essence, the scent, the character of this moment. Allow it to be.
As you go deeply, release your attachment to the world. And as you release your attachment, release your resistance. In this moment, you are not a critic or a judge, you are not deciding whether things are good or bad, whether people have done well or not. In this moment, perhaps a bird is calling out, perhaps a little breeze plays against your cheek. These are part of this moment and can be taken in with the breath that takes you deeper and deeper still.
In this moment, this one moment, all is well. You begin to feel your connection with the throb of life. The blood runs through your veins. Your lungs expand to welcome each breath. Your heart beats and sends blood surging. And still you go deeper.
And now, beyond and yet within your body, a universe opens up. The universe is within you, you are it. In each atom of your body, a universe exists. You are within this universe and it begins to expand even more. Deeper and deeper you go, floating by the stars that twinkle, traveling across galaxies, wondrous and glowing.
Deeper and deeper we go until you are the stars the sky; you are the void which is in fact everything.
Eternal. Unending. Infinite. That is what you are.
Expansive, creative, wonderfully inventive and intelligent. That is what you are.
Holy, the way a rose is holy, the way a bird on the wing is holy. That is what you are.
Deeply blessed, pure and shining, a fountain of goodness and nourishment for the soul. That is what you are.
Everything is within you and you are within everything. The Oneness stretches out to infinity and the love pulses within it. And you are this.
Be here, stay here, as long as you like, just breathing, learning yourself as an infinite being of light and love, glowing with possibility, creative beyond imagining.
When you are ready, begin to gather all of this into your heart. As you do so, as you bring in the infinity of possibility, let it fill you with courage and self-belief, the confidence that you are fully capable of handling whatever may come.
How can you not be? When you spend just a few minutes dipping into truth, you see the infinite, the wealth of creativity and possibility within you. Free from fear and the urgent energies of the society outside, you are free to imagine creative ideas for your own life, to see how to focus your energy, fearless and clear, on what actions you can take that will bring you closer to what is true for you.
Perhaps you cannot put this into words, like some goal or purpose. You do not need to. It is within you. Deep inside, where we have been traveling, there is a deep knowledge of who you are and what step you can take in each moment that will be the fullest expression of yourself. You can sense this action, this step; you can know it and feel it. You do not need to be able to speak aloud the destination. All you need to do is acknowledge the golden step just in front of you: that one, shining there, that thing you feel you should do, even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else.
It takes courage to walk your own truth, but you have within you all the courage you need. Right now. Right here, deep within.
Travel here every day until you know your way. Let the pathway of your own personal truth become well worn from frequent visits. And then, when you step outside into the world, it will be easier to find the right step to take.
