Be Gardens

It is not enough to be able to drop your body
as easily as a bathrobe, take flight like the eagle,
enter the hollow hills, talk with angels, and
dance among the stars.

We must make the return.

We must live in this world and be gardens
for the dreams that want to take root in it.
— Robert Moss, Dreaming True

I don’t know the auhor or his approach to dreams. But I enjoyed this quote that showed up on another site.

    That is a seriously beautiful quote!!!
    Years ago, I had an experience connected to the idea/chant of ‘dropping mind and body’. I recall the sensation of falling through the couch I had been laying on. It shocked me at the time right out if the experience! Perhaps it’s time to do it again… remembering if course to return for what I leave behind!

    Thanks for sharing, dthanja.

    On this blog, I emphasize the importance of connecting with source over seeking experiences. Experiences like you had come naturally. But they come and go. Seeking techniques to encourage experiences tends to get us caught in chasing experiences. However, if we develop our connection to source then good experiences will become more common naturally and not tend to leave so much.

    A good example would be what is often called “astral traveling”. There are techniques one can practice to have out of body experiences. However, repeated such experiences tends to cause a disintegration between the various “bodies”, reducing the overall quality of experience and life. (search “koshas” here to read more on bodies)

    If we develop our connection to source and clarity of consciousness, we become clear in consciousness itself. Consciousness has no boundaries so can be moved through with simple attention. There is no “leaving” the body, just moving attention around. This offers a bigger and cleaner playing field than the astral and comes naturally along with numerous other benefits.

    As they say in the Vedas, Highest First.
