Nitima does an egg-sellent job on this meditation. I found my safe place on a private beach in Florida where, a few years ago, we had rented a beach house for the week when my son was getting married. I was alone on the open beach with the fire I had built in a pit in the sand.
Listening to the contrast of the sharp Crackle & pop of the dry driftwood burning against the soothing backdrop of the rhythmic rolling waves... Ahhh... feeling the flame’s warmth while watching the dancing glow of the embers keep time to the flowing breeze coming off the ocean. It was magical & I felt safe. Not needing a thing, not thinking a thought, just being one with the moment...
Then she said to put my hand on my heart, which I did. I could feel the rhythm of my pulse & as I looked into the fire deeper... the yellow glow took over and surrounded me. I was safely in a yellow embryo like a yolk in a very large egg. Protected by my shell I could completely relax.
She said something that gave me a profound sense of security for the future, (despite all the seeming uncertainty being publicized). She said we are planting the seeds for our future safety & security, by feeling safe & secure in this now. Wow!
I am securing my future feelings of safety by planting the seeds of safety & security in this current Now (the only time we can really act)
Plus, whenever I am feeling uncertain, scared or worried, I have this memory stored in my heart that I can return to & release anytime, anywhere with anybody by simply putting my hand on my heart & mentally returning to enjoying my beach fire from the safety of my egg!!
Thanks Nitima for this most useful meditation tool. I will add it to my collection.
