“To habitually think in multisensory ways is to consistently be inspired by nature’s beauty within us.” ~ Michael J. Cohen, Reconnecting with Nature
Within each of us is hidden beauty. The quality aspect of our inner nature imprisoned in a body-mind until it is fine-tuned to Nature’s luminous spiritual light, the lens where inner beauty can pass unadulterated in expression. As a stone is to a gem cutter, in a similar manner, our inner beauty is imprisoned in the larger stone and layer by layer with each cleaving blow we eliminate non-essentials that are contrary to our inner nature.
Keeping our vision clear and held in our upper most consciousness of that which is to be revealed, express or crafted, eliminates from our field of expression, all that hinders a gradual release into a fuller faceted embodiment. In such a way, the revelation of raw beauty emerges as a luminous diamond.
The diamond within us holds the beauty of our potential, not the world of outer appearances. Our beauty is the source of our deepest dreams and highest aspirations; it holds our key values and guiding principles to manifest our vision and purpose.
Our authentic self speaks to us through the spectrum of imagination. These are our colorful dreams, imaginations and kaleidoscopic visions produced by the refractive light of our Diamonds essence. From them we poise our attention to liberate light from the psychic bondage that holds together the dark layers of our conditioning, emotional discord and physical dis-eases. Dark layers are created by disconnect from our imminent Source in Nature, while the intrusive presence of age-old intra-psychic forces loom souring the hearts of humanity and exuberance for living.
Does the future vision of life engender excitement and anticipation? Authentic self-expression is always in alignment with our deepest dreams, values, purpose and vision divinely guided through the intuitive connection with the Spirit of life. “How well is personal vision and purpose honored that supports experiencing quality of life?” Where we place our attention is indicative of what we value, the intrinsic qualities of worth we choose to support our life with. Example: Nature, Beauty, Spirituality, Love, Balance, Integrity, Intimacy, Freedom, Joy, kindness, Gratitude, Honesty, Abundance, Excellence, Family, Friends, Learning, Play and so on. How is the Value of Life Honored?” The more we honor our deepest values, the more ease and freedom there is helping us to fulfill, satisfy and enrich our lives producing depth in connection. Depth allows us to step into our purpose as divine co-creators. Immersion with Nature offers access to inner wisdom and compassion to govern the law of our own being. This gift only comes from living the integrity of our excellence in alignment with Natural Law.
Taking the first vital step into the Path of Heart encourages cultivation of the Inner Diamond within to learn the language of the heart. The second is to discover our Wings to flow in tandem with Nature’s rhythm into full somatic enlightenment. Anais Nin wrote, ” We do not see things are they are; we see things as we are.” When we cultivate the inner diamond at the heart, we begin to walk in Beauty, as what is within is also without.
