“As a child I had fun standing between parallel mirrors in my parents’ bathroom, experiencing the reflected images of myself as infinite expressions of my one appearance. Later in life, meditative self-inquiry revealed that everything—every thing—is a doppelgänger expression of the unfathomable mystery from which we are all born, in which we live out our lives, and back into which we shall all return.
I’ve come to realize that nothing—no thing—is separate, except as imagined distinct by my mind, which has been engineered by nature to project separation where none actually exists. What magic! How astounding!
When we recognize that there is no other, that everything is an expression of the undivided Mystery, we perceive unity everywhere, even as our mind perceives diversity. As we live this realization, love blossoms and collaboration is realized to be the only possibility.
When we live ensconced in the belief of separation we suffer. But suffering is simply a messenger that’s signaling us to turn back into collaborative relationship with ourselves, and those around us, and re-discover our underlying unity. Living our unity evokes unchanging well-being, joy, dynamic stillness and true collaboration, in which we are always meeting ourselves as infinite doppelgänger expressions of our underlying unity. Please join me on retreat, or at an iRest training, where our deepest intention is to live our unity, in heartfelt collaboration, even as we play together in diversity.”
I practise yoga nidra regularly, we often do it in our yoga classes, it is incredibly restorative, and they say that a 30 minute yoga nidra is equivalent to three hours of sleep. I cant recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to relax, heal, and grow spiritually.
