Unbelievably meaningful beauty.

imagine if you will
like pearls of crystal clear droplets of many different sizes
condensing on a leaf
deep in the misty jungle
perched high above a pool of perfectly still reflection
light glistens from above in each droplet
the pool of stillness below beckons
a subtle force acting on each one
to follow pathways unknown
pulling towards the source
unseen yet as powerful as gravity
it is the divine force of love
its voice only heard by an opening heart
its beauty only seen by a beating heart
surface tension firmly holds the smallest droplets
a half hearted self resistance to movement
larger droplets filled with a knowing of what lies beyond share their being of love
sensed from the pool below and captured from the ether of life, offering the essence required to overcome their resistance
droplets of ever expanding heart begin to grow
overcoming that which holds…

Rupert Spira recorded this on March 12 while he was still in California, and wanted to share it with us all, in response to the growing coronavirus situation.
I wanted to share something with you on the evening of my sixtieth birthday.
One of my favourite poems by W. B. Yeats was written on his fiftieth birthday,
and he said this:
My fiftieth year had come and gone,
I sat, a solitary man,
In a crowded London shop,
An open book and empty cup
On the marble table-top.
While on the shop and street I gazed
My body of a sudden blazed;
And twenty minutes more or less
I felt that I was blessed and could bless.
Well… I too, sit, a solitary man, on a rock, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, on this March evening, above Muir Beach, in California. And I too, feel, like W. B. Yeats, that I am blessed, and can bless.
I do not mean any pretension, by that statement. Many of you also feel blessed and can bless.
These are changing and uncertain times, but the rapid change, and uncertainty, and insecurity of our times brings into… brings into sharp focus that which is certain; that which is unchanging; and that which is secure.
Namely, our own being.
Our own being is the one constant factor in all changing, uncertain experience.
And if we seek security and peace, we should look for it where it resides; namely, in our own being.
Everybody knows their own being. But not everybody knows their own being clearly. And it is for this reason that not everyone is in touch with, or not everyone feels, the peace and the quiet joy that is the nature of our self, or our being. For many of us, our being is so thoroughly mixed up with the content of our experience, that whilst we sense, whilst we know our being or sense our self, we do not know our self clearly. And it is for this reason that for many of us, the innate peace and the quiet, unconditional joy of our being is not fully felt in the midst of our experience.
So, if in these uncertain and insecure times we seek peace and joy, we should turn simply to our own being. Our own being that lies behind, and indeed pervades, all experience. However, for many of us, our own being is first found in the background of experience, where it lies like a constant friend, unchanging, impartial, bestowing its peace on everything that we experience.
All that is necessary, is to turn towards our self, or our being. And, if we do so, it will –occasionally suddenly, but for most of us, gradually– take us into itself.
So, if we seek peace at this time, all that is necessary to do, is to take refuge in our self. All the peace and all the joy that we have ever truly longed for, lives there.
And one who is in touch with their own being, is truly blessed, for they are in possession of that which is most precious in life, and that for which all people long, above all else.
And such a one has the capacity to bless.
By that, I simply mean as the capacity to share their innate peace, and their quiet unconditional joy, with whoever they come in contact.
With or without words.
So, in these uncertain times, I wish you all, the peace and the quiet joy that is the very nature of your self.
[Smiles ever so sweetly, and slowly turns the camera to share with us a bit of the gorgeous, expansive view of the Pacific Ocean from the Muir Beach Overlook. Thank You, dearest Rupert. We truly are so unconditionally blessed. Thank you for always reminding us, our fellow gem of Heaven.]
Rupert Spira transcribed by Leon Hieros
The soul was never meant to be seen completely. The light of modern consciousness is not gentle or reverent; it lacks graciousness in the presence of mystery; it wants to unriddle and control the unknown. Modern consciousness is similar to the harsh and brilliant white light of a hospital operating theatre. This neon light is too direct and clear to befriend the shadowed world of the soul. It is not hospitable to what is reserved and hidden. The Celtic mind had a wonderful respect for the mystery and depth of the individual soul.
The Celts recognized that the shape of each soul is different; the spiritual clothing one person wears, can never fit the soul of another. It is interesting that the word revelation comes from re-valere, literally, to veil again. The world of the soul is glimpsed through the opening in a veil which closes again. There is no direct, permanent or public access to the divine. Each destiny has a unique curvature which must find its own spiritual belonging and direction. Individuality is the only gateway to spiritual potential and blessing.

C… mein Seelchen und liebstes GOTTES Schatz! Wir brauchen überhaupt nichts. Stay rooted in your personal power, my Dearest. Let us leave in God’s care all our J…s and T…s and every external one and every external thing for a while. Close your eyes now for a few seconds and FEEL how deeply, eternally loved you are. I close my eyes with you and feel the same.
Let us connect with our Source my love, with our Higher Selves and our One Source, for that is anyway how you and I are connected. How any two or more people are truly connected above all the emotional and mental noise, beyond all illusions. There is no other way to connect, so let us become AWARE of this together right now. Let us do this slowly. Read slowly, breathe slowly and steadily. If you need to cry, cry. Just stop and cry, cry feeling with all your soul’s beauty: “Thank you my God for everything, for everything leads me back to you in me. Thank You my God for Everything.”
Shed all the tears you need to, and then relax, drink some lukewarm water, let your body find its balance, and start over. Sit up straight, breathing really slowly and steadily until you can go through this paragraph once without interrupting:
(Breathe in:) Thank you for your breath my God, (breathe out:) I am nothing but your breath, (breathe in:) I let myself be breathed by you, (breathe out:) you are my love and nourishment, (breathe in:) and everyone else’s too; (breathe out:) from our first breath to our last, (breathe in:) You are our Love and Nourishment; (breathe out:) from our first to our last breath and beyond, (breathe in:) We Are One with You, (breathe out:) Our Source; Our Ever-Loving Source. (Breathe in:) Thank you for your breath my God, (breathe out:) I am nothing but your breath, (breathe in:) I let myself be breathed by you, (breathe out:) you are my love and nourishment, (breathe in:) and everyone else’s too; (breathe out:) from our first breath to our last, (breathe in:) You are our Love and Nourishment; (breathe out:) from our first to our last breath and beyond, (breathe in:) We Are One with You, (breathe out:) Our Source; Our Ever-Loving Source. (Breathe in:) Thank you for your breath my God, (breathe out:) I am nothing but your breath, (breathe in:) I let myself be breathed by you, (breathe out:) you are my love and nourishment, (breathe in:) and everyone else’s too; (breathe out:) from our first breath to our last, (breathe in:) You are our Love and Nourishment; (breathe out:) from our first to our last breath and beyond, (breathe in:) We Are One with You, (breathe out:) Our Source; Our Ever-Loving Source.
I go clean our building now. For the next almost three hours, I will be thanking our God with you for Everything.
