Mornings at our new cabin
I woke up early this morning to watch the sun rise, listen to the loons sing, and allow my spirit to be wrapped by a light fog over the lake. A good friend of mine visited me in my dreams last night. She's been gone since April and missed sorely by many. I felt her presence this morning .. her spirit brought heaven to earth as I could feel her radiant energy in the midst of utter calm. In my dream her face is glowing, radiant as always -- "I am okay", she says. I can feel her love for the universe, her acceptance of life's terms, not our terms. I can feel the love she has for her partner, for her family, for her friends, for all living creatures.
Heaven isn't up there. Heaven isn't somewhere we go to when we die. Heaven is right here, right now.
"The still lake without ripples is an image of our minds at ease, so full of unlimited friendliness for all the junk at the bottom of the lake that we don't feel the need to churn up the waters just to avoid looking at what's there.” - Pema Chodron.
Thank you Elaine for visiting me last night. Thank you for reminding me that we are all connected, and that our spirits live on forever.
I captured images from this morning on camera and have posted them in a short video clip ...
Here's wishing you a peaceful day. May you experience heaven in you heart today.
