Friday, February 19, 2010: Meditation: Breathing of the Om

          Today I am breathing Om. The reality around me dissolves into atoms, vibrations of divine love.  With each breath I take I pull outside atoms of Om deep into my body. A few more breaths and only the faintest awareness of a physical body remains. There are no organs, no bones; I feel swirling atoms of Om that make up the center of my being, that fill the shell of a body.

         I take deeper breaths and the outside atoms pour in through my entire face, flowing and mixing before once again flowing outward. I watch divine love flowing inward to nourish me.  I watch the radiance of its love transform me, and I release the love softly back into the universe. There is no need to cling to divine love as if it were a rare and precious gift, for there are no longer boundaries between the love of my own center and that of the divine itself.

         The last of my body awareness dissolves and I am content to be a single atom of Om, drifting in a cosmic sea. My breathing comes like a wave, carrying me closer to shore, then carrying me back to the depths. It no longer matters that outside disturbances may shift me one way or another.  It no longer matters where I drift or my position within the vastness of these waters. It does not even matter if the individual awareness of my being remains in this unity or becomes somehow separated.

        What does it matter if I sometimes feel pulled from the comfort of this vast ocean? Let me be taken up into some smaller cycle. Time means nothing to a divine that constantly changes and shifts. Wherever my journey leads my truest center, this singular atom of divine water, will eventually find its way back to the eternal source.  That is the reality of Om.

I love this idea of breathing, of there being no bones, no muscles, no organs - only atoms. Sometimes when we insist on defining ourselves so strictly, we forget we're all the same swirling possibilities. Thank you for this reminder.
