We often lament the pain of separation from ourselves, each other, or the divine. But perhaps there is something perfect about feeling separate and lonely. There is something so perfect about our perceived disconnect from the One Heart. There is something within the experience of separation that builds our longing to unite.
In his poem, Absolutely Clear, Hafiz writes:
Don’t surrender your loneliness
Let it cut more deep.
Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tongiht
Has made my eyes so soft,
My need of God
When I grow infinitely lonely, I meditate or read a poem and try to re-ignite my longing. I try to remember that I am here to make my way back Home.
Please join me in practicing eleven days of the Maha Gyan Agni Pranayam to honor the San Shaman of southern Africa who will Ignite the One Heart Fire on May 24, 2017 to elevate human consciousness to the Ninth Wave of Creation.
May we use the energy of our pain of separation to launch us to the cozy center of the One Heart. Sat Nam!
