I have been out of my office this week, taking some necessary time for myself, a break to rejuvenate and reconnect with myself. I do not do this very often…certainly not often enough…but that is a condition of this current age, is it not? We are busy and our lives are full of a great many things to manage. But…I write and teach about taking time for oneself…and so, I took myself at my own word…and arranged some time for me.
As I was spending time in Meditation, something very profound came over me, and I wanted to share it.
We are all called daily to give of ourselves…and though we likely do not do so enough…we should remember to give back to ourselves and do/think those things that fill us back up and Rejuvenate us…so we do not become overwhelmed, depleted, and ultimately empty. As I was doing these things for myself, one of them being Meditation, a new clarity started to open up about WHAT it is that we fill ourselves with. We all have our personal interests and spiritual food…but I began to ask a different question. From where does that come?
And the answer that came booming over me while deep in Meditation was…SOURCE. Our Source. Our own individual Source. That is…we as separate individual beings have a Source…our own direct Source. We learn about THE Source…whatever that means to each one of us, whether it be God, Goddess, Higher Powers, Universe, Earth, Spirit, etc…or all of the above! But in this Meditation…the meaning of Source presented itself in an absolute condensed focus…and I was shown my own individual line of Source…that was my connection and only mine. In other words, we pray to and draw from the Greater Source…but there is also our own personal Source, just for this life. Every being has their own unique Source, the point of energy where we begin and end. That line of Source is only for that individual, for that life and that life alone…and it is what feeds us.
So, when we look to be Rejuvenated…whether we can “get away” or not…all we need do is call to “Our Source” to flow into us and fill us up. The “doing” of that which revitalizes us is a pleasure, and we need to do that…but, it is the opening up to our own particular line of Source that truly fills us…and we need nothing, no one, and nowhere to access it.
I feel like I am hopelessly stumbling on the words to convey these thoughts…excruciating for a writer! So let me try a visual with an analogy! The Earth is filled with people, the sky with stars.
For every person on the planet, there is a star in the heavens that is their own individual point of light. Visualize that there is a thread connecting each person to each star.
The threads run smoothly through the heavens, never getting tangled, because at the Source, there is always balance and harmony. Through that thread runs our energy, vitality, spiritual nourishment. Our star is our own star, and feeds no one but us. The Greater Source feeds everyone, including our own star/source…but this one particular star…is just for us. Our own Source…always ready and full to send us what we need. It is never depleted. It can never be broken. And it will never leave us or fail us. And it knows exactly what we need. We need not fear to Trust it.
So…we have prayed or asked or begged of the Greater Source, and we all have, with differing results. But think of the possibilities once we realize, in absolute Knowing, that our own line of Source is there too. It confirms our place in the world, the universe. Even if we are lost within ourselves…our place in the universe is not lost. So we are always connected to and anchored in…our Source.
Just as Nature is the Greater Source for a river…it still springs forth from it’s own Source point of rock, stream, or pond, etc. And so too…though we are all part of and can draw on the Greater Source…we still have our own individual Source of this one Life we have to live. Perhaps it is time to remember and become more aware of and reclaim that Source. For that Source embodies our Destiny, our True Life Purpose, and the Essence of who we Truly Are.
Call to that Source, Receive the flow, and see what happens.
