February Day of Meditation for the World

This new year is already showing its character: new. New coronavirus variants, new administration in the White House with new information and truth-talking every day from its podiums. A third, new vaccine for the virus will be rolling out before or around Spring. The US is back at the tables of world conversations about climate change and support of Nature, the future of the world and world economies, nuclear weapons, a fresh eye on dictatorships, domestic terrorism, and equality. Fresh, sane, and tilting toward honest are qualities of this new year.

As above, so below; as the macro, so the micro. This ancient maxim states the obvious: energy is energy; if a quality is demonstrating on the collective scale, it will assuredly demonstrate on, within, and for the individual. New, sane, and more honest are three characteristics that I have noted, but maybe you have noted others. What matters for each of us is to recognize the invitations as they happen. These will be to greater wholeness and to more ease and well-being for the planet and one’s self. Wisdom lies in giving such overtures due attention, diligence, and joyful effort.  The people and environments around us, and the world of which we are a part, will rejoice as we do.

Soften and open to the new and the possible is February’s theme for A Day of Meditation for Humanity and the World.

Meditation: dedication

  • white OM at the crown center: embodiment is pure, perfect in every way
  • red AH at the throat center: all expressions (visual, auditory, scents, tastes, shape, texture, vibrational, etc.) are more than perceived
  • blue HUM at the heart center: the heart essence of each moment is profound; being of each moment the profound is common
  • white OM at the base center: all that appears and exists is utterly pure and perfect by nature

Meditation: heart, new day

Yesterday, Jo Biden spoke from the heart in terms of the heart center: unity (universal), dignity, decency, and the fearlessness to state truth.

Our meditations are for the world as well as our self and all around us.

It’s a new day, world! Someone is speaking from the heart; and we are called to the same.

Meditation: heart 1, universal

There are two human centers (chakras) that are universally oriented: the heart center and crown center. The heart is universal always; the crown unfolds. One could question if the heart opens incrementally also? What we experience which seems to be the heart unfolding such as expanding, more impartial empathy awakening with us, or increase of genuine ease or calm result due to the solar plexus, its psychological states and personal focus as well as the sacral center, its psychological states and person focuses are decreasing, being tamed, dissolving or eroding.

Look out a window right now for an analogy. Our attention is drawn to the items outside the window: the trees or people, birds or other animals, the cars and movement in general. The vastness and impartiality of the sky is not where our attention is immediately drawn. The former is indicative of the forefront functioning of the solar plexus and sacral centers; the latter represents the already present, fully accessible heart center.

Let’s meditate.
