Aquaflow Water Meditation is for those who long to connect to their deepest essence through the element of water. Your longing is a gateway. How do you feel near water? Or when you enter it? Water cleanses, soothes and restores. In this time of great change on our planet, we must remember who we are and reconnect to our origins in water. We are water. Water is life. Water is sacred.Aquaflow is a path to what is most holy in you. Hear the call of the water. Surrender, trust, flow. You are a beloved child of Mother Earth.
"Inhale deeply with reverence, love, compassion, and kindness. Communicate with your breath that it must give you peace of mind, peace on the mother planet Earth, peace and oneness with God and His creation." - Yogi Bhajan
Your body is always with you as you work, play, sleep and dream, yet so many of us struggle to accept our bodies. Many spiritual traditions look down on the body, but what would we be without it? Nothing! What if we made a commitment to cherish and nourish our bodies in thought, deed and word? Instead of struggling, what if we embraced being in a body? What if we tended to its needs with love, soothed it like a little child, carried its grief with tenderness, allowed wind and waves to be our lovers? What if scars were wisdom we shared with pride? What if, finally, we remembered where we came from? Air, fire, water, earth, stars...
Listen, my friend, this road is the heart opening,
Kissing his feet, resistance broken, tears all night.
If we could reach God through immersion in water,
I would have asked to be born a fish in this life.
If we could reach Him through eating berries and nuts
Then surely the saints would have been born monkeys!
If we could reach Him by munching lettuce and dry leaves
Then the goats would surely get to God before us!
If worshipping stone statues could bring us all the way,
I would have adored a granite mountain years ago.
Mirabai says: The heat of midnight tears will bring you to God.
To be is our natural state. We have lost our way with too much focus on becoming. "The world is too much with us, getting and spending we lay waste our powers," wrote the poet William Wordsworth over 200 years ago. We need more being. Flow helps us be more. However, there is a third option. There is no verb "to be" in the Maya Tz'utujil language. Instead of saying, "I am a farmer or a weaver," they would describe themselves by saying, "I belong to the corn fields or I belong to the pasture where the sheep roam." They allow themselves to be claimed by land and water. They are not being or becoming. They belong. We, too, can belong. We must place our trusts in poets and dreamers, flow with life and reweave the circle.
"Just sit there right now. Don't do a thing. Just rest. For your separation from God, from love. Is the hardest work in this world."
