Personal Breast Bliss

zen

Happy Anniversary … to me ;-).  I received the notice today that it was one year ago today that I started this blog … WOW!!!!  Talk about a LOT of changes that have taken place in that year … it’s kind of crazy to even consider :-).  12,000 views and a whole WORLD of change later has me feeling grateful for how this blog, and daily meditation that has gone with it, has seen me through.  Connecting with my Creator in a meaningful way, every day, really has changed everything for me … and I know it can for anyone else as well.

When pondering all of those changes, both internally and externally … what I am left with is gratitude … and bliss.  So that is my theme for the words I will be meditating on today.  Peace and Love!

“You can own an elephant or a bank or power thereof but if there’s no personal breast bliss all you own is a lot of dead atoms and ideas.”

– Allen Ginsberg

“The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.”

– Emily Dickinson

“People usually seek to join a religious system in order to gain the eternal bliss and freedom of the soul. But belonging somewhere; anywhere is not freedom. Free is the wind. You need to become the wind, not wanting to know how and why, but only to experience this quality of freedom that leads to the original “religion”. There the soul is finally ONE and aligned with anything.”

– Grigoris Deoudis

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
