The Journey Within

The power within me is the only power I can wield for it is the power that I am.

“I am the power within.”

All I need do is to make this statement of truth and I feel the intensity of the energy expanding with every moment of my awareness of it. It feels like an eruption and it also feels like a slow blossoming that fills me with assurance and strength.

As I continue to hold my awareness within I become awakened to a greater understanding of what I am. The sounds of the outer world continue but the power of the outer world upon my senses has receded and my inner world is where it is all happening. I can see that my outer experience has actually originated within me.

As I settle into the great quiet within, I am aware that the sounds and movements around me have calmed. A sense of peace overrides the thoughts and feelings that are present. It seems that these are not as important and problematic as they were only a few moments ago.

My body settles with a sigh and I melt into the effortless yet profound sensation of simply experiencing myself as I am.

I notice the effortlessness of my breath as it inspires and enlivens my body. There is nothing I am doing and yet it seems that so much is happening anyway. Without any interference from me, life is being sustained in perfect balance.

I listen to life in and around me.

The traffic sounds like the ebb and flow of the ocean, the birds flute in and out, the water feature a stream hastening down a tumble of rocks, the fridge a choir of chanting monks, my breath the winds at night, my fingers on the keyboard the dancer tapping the floorboards in an empty room and all the sounds meld into a symphonic blessing that allows me to rest, deeply surrendered in its embrace.
