There is a Luminous, Spacious Energy

I want to thank Aguycalledbloke and  Anita Bowen at Onelightonesource for nominating me for the 3-Day Quote Challenge.  The rules are simple: I must thank those who nominated me, post one quote per day for three consecutive days, and nominate new bloggers each day. I’m on day three of the challenge, and disregarded the need to post three days in a row. I’ve not had time to post daily. Ever.

Today’s quote:

There were no boundaries or borders.  It was as if my mind had once long ago made up a story about separate objects with boundaries but the story wasn’t true.  The true story is that there is a luminous, spacious energy that flows through everything all the time.  It’s within matter, within things as well as within space, and you can tune in to it at any time, just like changing the frequency on the radio.  There is no distance between this essence and ourselves.  It is not otherworldly.  It is right here, closer than our own flesh.  –Vijali Hamilton

Since I’m not following all the rules anyway, I’m going to give a little bonus quotation here today.

Find a day for yourself—better yet, late at night. Go to the forest or to the field, or lock yourself in a room … You will meet solitude there. There you will be able to listen attentively to the noise of the wind first, to birds singing, to see wonderful nature and to notice yourself in it … and to come back to harmonic connection with the world and its Creator. — Rabbi Nahman

This meadow was a wonderful place to renew my connection with myself, the world, and the Creator.

  2. This is so true. If, in our busy day to day lives, we would only take the time to find calmness, to be quiet and listen. Even the bible says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” The energy of the universe surrounds us, moves through us, and we are so unaware most of the time. Thanks!

    • I feel the divine energy of the universe moving through me the often, at my invitation. It makes me stronger, more peaceful, and more at ease. I can’t always make it to the forest, but I can always find that energy with my heart.
