Dancing Rainbows

As the path of awakening continues and as each of us chooses to live more consciously in the present moment, it seems the waves of consciousness are creating shift after shift after shift...

On the surface, life may look and feel unchanged, but when we go within we can see that we are rapidly shifting and evolving, and with each passing day we are opening up to new experiences, new ideas and new beliefs as we step more consciously on the path to Self.

When we have the courage to look deeply within, we can expect to find a wide array of cupboards and closets tucked away and hidden from view. Some of these contain painful memories and experiences, whilst some contain peace, stillness and bliss. At the same time, many of these closets appear empty, and this has been a cause for concern for many. Yet, it is the ‘emptiness’ or space within that brings us closer to Self and closer to the Divine, for space suggests an openness and awareness that we are not finite in essence, but infinite. 

If we step a little deeper into this space we can sense the infinity and the power of Divinity, for it is only in the spaces (those spaces where we are beyond expectations, storylines and cycles), that we realise the Truth of our existence. The space shows a willingness to step beyond the familiar and open up to the true infinite and expansive nature of the Universe. Of course, space suggests a void or a vacuum, but it is so much more than this, for it is everything and nothing at the same time!

Without getting lost in riddles, it seems that we are ready now to open up more fully and more consciously to Source. Having the courage to allow space to rise up from within is important, for this space allows us to rest in the moment and ‘be’. In a way, the space is a sign of our willingness to evolve and step beyond boundaries in order to move towards a more conscious way of living and being. 

It is all too easy to fear space, for it invokes a sense of being beyond control and beyond our comfort zones. Yet, this is the point, for it is only by relinquishing our need to contain and control that we can open up and become a fluid and free moving part of the Universal Whole. Once in such a flow, we realise the Truth and our power, our infinity and divinity. 

Space is but a word, it is useful to describe the stillness within as a clear space, for it helps us to see, feel and touch it. Yet, this stillness is not a vacant plot, for whilst it is calm and still, it is teaming with life and energy at the same time! The concept of space helps us, as humans, to perceive ‘space’, but in truth, space is never empty, for it is not a vacuum; it is vibrant, alive, breathing and amazing.

When we contemplate life and take a conscious step towards Truth on the path to Self, in many ways we are seeking a simpler, but richer, way of living and being. Letting go of the complications and distractions of life in order to live more in-tune with one Self and the Universe, is a powerful and life-affirming step. Once we let go of our perceptions of the space we are seeking out, we realise that as we open up to the nothingness, we are opening up to everything at the same time, for we step beyond boundaries, limitations, restrictions and fear and instead open up to the full magnificent splendour of infinite possibility.

Infinite possibility should not feel confusing or overwhelming though, for once consciously in the space within, we realise that this is our true state of being. In essence, it is only by letting go of the clutter that we can begin to seek out more balance and wholeness, for we realise the true power of All that we Are. 

As we celebrate the joy that the space within can bring us, we soon see beyond the discomfort of the void as our awareness opens up and we see rainbows of light dancing through us and with us. We then realise that we are all an integral part of the Whole; we are all Divine sparks. It is time now to let both the waves of consciousness and rainbows of light dance freely; to feel the freedom to dance with them, to open up to them and to choose to become One with them...
