the lake…

your journey begins on the outside.
but ends within.
the within.
where all is peaceful.
ask the questions.
to be shown the way to the calmness within.
the lake.
with no ripples.
absolutely still.
it’s within each of us.
this lake.
it’s your consciousness.
by whatever is happening in the external.
this is where we need to be.
it’s an amazing journey.
swim in it.
dive to its depths.
to feel peace.
like you’ve never felt before.
where all merges into the still waters.
of your consciousness.
where the water becomes you.
you become the water.
that’s becoming one with your consciousness.
the end of duality.
the consciousness that binds us all.
the oneness.
truly blessed are you.
find your lake.
find God.
safely ensconced within you.
be secure in the knowledge.
that no harm can come to you.
because you are He.
and He is you.
one consciousness.
just one.
look deep within your lake.
privileged are you to recognize this.
beyond your wildest imagination are you loved.
dive in.
meter by meter.
close in.
to the bottom of the lake.
to the serenity.
the stillness.
the treasure.
let it unfold.
you don’t need to hold your breath.
the water is the air.
one & the same.
that’s the oneness.
not just of our souls.
but of all elements.
waiting for you.
at the bottom.
of your lake…

  1. Well my friend, you knocked out another winner! That lake for many is rolling with waves I am afraid. I hope the calmness will come to all soon. Patience is truly a virtue in this world today with all of the chaos. Thank you guys…..:) VK

  2. What a beautiful image! May you find yourself swimming in deep & warm crystal waters today! I wonder about the ripples… the water may be still, but when we dive in, through our presence, our movements, thoughts, & decisions, we create inevitable ripples that move outwards to the shore… where our lives overlap with others… maybe, the less we fight the water, the more serene the ripples become…. and it reminds me of this quote: “Stillness within one individual can affect society beyond measure.” ~Bede Griffiths. Thanks again for your beautiful and thought provoking writing! Happy day to you!! 

    • thank you again. the ripples are necessary for a period i guess, but once you take the plunge what happens on the surface is largely irrelevant. the deep waters remain still.
      “Stillness within one individual can affect society beyond measure.” – so incredibly true. if we all only realized how we all can, together, create an ocean that’s still, not just a lake…God bless & love always. have a wonderful new year…
