Behind the scenes where the stars are made

When sadness calls, when confusion appears, when shame arrives, when anxiety comes for tea, do not mistake them for ordinary visitors, for they have been sent from beyond. Each emerges out of the unknown offering an invitation for you to take a sacred pilgrimage. If you accept, you are taken on a journey into the cells of your own heart, through the strands of your DNA, sailing down the holy river that is your own body. You are bewildered as you are now behind the scenes where the stars are made, which is inside you. You see that love is washing your organs, filling you with its essence, and preparing your senses for what is next.

It may seem like an ordinary Wednesday, but there is nothing ordinary here; everything that appears is lit up from the inside by luminous particles of awareness. Love calls out: please come to know the experience that has been given to you, right here, right now, as it is. You need not seek any other; you need not exit into some “higher” state of consciousness, into some fable of awakening, or into the grace that you have been told will come in the future. Stay here, stay close, and allow me all the way inside.
