I did a group meditation earlier today, online, for an hour. However, I still wanted to do this Mandela Meditation, contemplating my Mandela while listening to an Akashic Records Meditation Music (from You Tube). I feel that this Meditation is good for me. However, the images from the hour group meditation did bleed over into this Mandela Meditation. And I guess that is to be expected. What I find interesting about this meditation is the fact that I keep seeing the black ink drawing behind the Mandela. It keeps wanting to peek out and go HI. HA. And I saw a face in the nucleus, a little gremlin, smiling crooked. HA, again. That's cool. It's such a pretty design. I love sitting here, contemplating it. What I saw beyond the Mandela was a body of water - blue water, and a pier, a wall, running alongside that body of water - this was probably an old wharf. The town where this wall and body of water is was started in the 1600s, and I know they were a seaport when the USA was first "created". I find it interesting, looking at an historic place - if you look at it, and then "meditate", let your mind go, you can see the traces of the prior lives that walked those streets. Well, at least, I can, well I did with this meditation. I like that when life melds like that. BE HERE NOW. The past is here, in the present. The future is here, in the present. It is all NOW. I see a white door frame. The glass in the door is quite clean. The sunlight makes everything outside, almost sparkle. I like this garden. BE HERE NOW. Life is filled with symbols. We humans like our metaphors. Don't believe it? Go to a church service - attend a spiritual ritual. CRAMMED FILLED with symbols. I like to find my symbols in Nature. The Microcosm reflects the Macrocosm.
