This month’s Satsang Invitation is all about celebrating ‘you’ being in existence.
Canela’s 50th birthday is about to happen and so it naturally gives rise to look at birthdays and what might be enjoyed and celebrated about that.
A birthday is an opportunity to celebrate being in existence…when you celebrate this for yourself you actually celebrate it for all. Any birthday is a great excuse to relish what is happening in each moment – a birthday points to the fact that you were born into this play, this dance of details we call life. (Anyone’s birthday will do, no need to wait for your own, the moment Now beckons!)
From the first moments, along rolled all of the moments leading up to Now…supporting the energy system of ‘you’ to emerge as it has…exactly like this – no more, no less than That…right here as you are.
The invitation here now is to soften with this one that you are, to recognize that this that is happening, this person in appearance, came into being just like every other human being, from birth. The body was formed within the womb until it was ready to emerge into its own realm – this life.
We speak of birth and point to the day, to the time, to the place as when the body leaves the mother. Were you here before that? Yes, but it is more vague as to the ‘when’ of that, it is not so clear a point to be able to point to it and say this then is the moment. A birthday does give a pointing place – not exactly to the moment as the celebration of a birthday often begins prior to the actual day and often lasts beyond that as well as a ‘day’ is quite a number of moments to point to!
Thankfully we have this one right now, this moment, that can be a celebration of this ‘you’ that is allowing the information from your screen to come in, to be received in this moment….however you are as you read this, to celebrate that you can read this, that reading is happening, that seeing is happening, that deciphering is happening, that understanding is happening, breathing is happening, digestion is happening, felt sense of body, of energy is happening, Awareness is happening. You as Awareness turn around and acknowledge that which is happening, this amazing miracle of being alive – of Being a spilling of Awareness in these moments exactly as they are, like this, as this apparent ‘you’ that you are. Wow! What a celebration, what a play of details…happy birthday to you now!!
Come and Be With us in Satsang in the celebration of being alive. Be With us in person, or energetically from where you are in celebrating this that is…you are welcome!
