You are longing for your own wholeness



Underneath the narrative of your life, just below the grand storyline, even beneath the colorful emotional landscape, there exists a rich, mysterious world of sensations – a somatically-organized field of intelligence, creativity, and aliveness. But the conceptual mind is unable to navigate this environment, and you have become unsettled.

You are in the dimension of love, but there is no ground here. You can no longer find any reference point from which to orient. The known has fallen away. Yet you are so alive. 

Descending into the vast, empty space of the body can feel terrifying, but you will be guided in ways you could never understand. The unseen world is alive around you, and is magnetized to the intelligence and creativity of your somatic unfolding. You are being held in ways you will never know.

It may appear you are longing for more: more joy, more bliss, more peace, more safety, more certainty, more experience, more lovers. But what you are longing for is your own wholeness, which is being revealed to you in the majesty of the here and now. It doesn’t quite look like you thought, but this is the signature of love as it reorients your world, polishing your heart with the unknown.
