** What Lies Beneath ** by KTR


Plunging deep into the cool water
I find escape from my daily consciousness

I am awakened within the million tiny bubbles that envelop my body

The only sound I hear is that of my own heartbeat
Permeating the pool with the soundtrack of life

dudum dudum dudum

I find peace within this space
Floating weightlessly in the abyss
My sense of importance and separateness melts away

Finally … a pause to the never ending tapes that run through my head
playing the same tune over and over again …
only giving me limited access to a reality that has unlimited possibility
distracting me from accessing the truth, hidden in the unwritten compositions of my Soul

I am reminded of the familiar space within my mother’s womb
Some twenty-seven years ago
and smile into the memories of my first home on this planet
these were the beginnings of my DNA’s ability to imprint my genetic code into this world, this so called reality

I say goodbye to my unconscious self
And am reacquainted with a newfound awareness
the perspective of a hawk, flying high above the sky
having the ability to see the terrain with impeccable vision

I am so much more than I can fathom, I think softly within my being
So much more …

My heartbeat consumes my entire, weightless form
Undulating under the water, as if I’ve found a secret garden
A respite from the noise

I have slipped beneath the everyday reality as my blinders are removed
I am reminded of what is essential and what is insignificant
As if revived from a lifeless state, almost drowned in complacency but alive once again!

What a gift …

I breathe in but don’t use my lungs
I see far beyond the illusion without my eyes
I am surrounded by love and hope and serenity

I am renewed, reborn

The beat of my heart reminds me of my vitality, my humanity, and connection to all
My heart beats in synch to the universal rhythms

If only I would stop and pause to listen more frequently
But I rarely do … caught up in the illusion of smallness and one dimensional thinking

These rhythms are in perfect alignment, a comforting drone which rocks me into a comforted state
Like a baby being rocked to sleep by the Universal arms

Beneath the surface
I am empty, I am full
I am everything, I am nothing
I am expansive yet restricted
I see a thousand faces that are me, we, I, the divine

I see flecks of myself in everybody else
Like shimmers of stars in the vast sky

We are all parts of the same thread that weaves in and out of this tapestry of mankind

I bathe my cells in the beautiful empty space of nothingness

I dive beneath the surface to face my fears and confront what comes before me
Life ripples within my veins, atoms and cells

Miracles are shifts in perspective, restructuring the makeup of my DNA, the potentiality of what is
Possibilities loom large in this other world, like the number of stars that paint the sky with twinkles of light
Flowers bloom, mountains move, water falls weightlessly from the sky
People change their minds, stop running from themselves and say I love you times infinity (I ❤ you x infinity)

Being weightless in water teaches you to hold on to nothing
Only what is truly needed, survives below

Nothing is permanent or reliable
Except your surrender, your call to expand, your ability to stop speaking and start listening to the deep truths that reside within your spiritual heart

Choose to believe, to see, to open your heart in expansive love and not shrivel in fear and darkness ….

Air, oxygen, now. I urgently swim to the top

Too bad, I was just getting started.

I will return some day, I promise …
