“Do not go to the garden of flowers!
O friend! Go not there;
In your body is the garden of flowers.
Take your seat on the thousand petals of the
Lotus, and there gaze on the infinite beauty.”
~ Kabir (Indian mystic and philosopher)
An incorruptible space exists within us. It can remain balanced and filled with goodness even as the world we live in becomes lopsided with cruelty, responsible for broken hearts, and obsessed with money-making. Illuminated by the soul’s sacred flame, this place of wisdom and innocence emanates peace and refreshes the mind. I call this space The Secret Room of the Eternal Lotus.
It is a challenge to find the Secret Room because it operates on a level unknown to our conscious mind. But it is accessible through deep meditation and the Buddha’s vibrations match it: love, peace and enlightenment. Other Ascended Masters, Gods, Goddesses and entities are attuned to the Secret Room as well, including Jesus, the Virgin Mary, Saint Germain, Hindu Goddess Lakshmi, Egyptian Gods Osiris and Ra, Archangel Raphael, and more. You will be attracted to the energy of one or more deities. Don't be afraid to explore this spiritual resonance.
As if taught by the sun, the lotus flower follows a natural rhythm. It sinks below the water at night and resurfaces at dawn, when it opens its petals in full bloom. Used as a sacred symbol for thousands of years, the lotus flower represented resurrection and purity to the ancient Egyptians, Buddhists and Hindus. Images exist of the Buddha rising from its petals, Hindu Goddess of abundance Lakshmi standing in the middle of a pink one and Egyptian God of the morning sun Nefertem crowned with its blossoms.
The Secret Room’s lotus teaches us that something brilliant, calm and holy can emerge from the darkness and fears we carry.
Still your mind. Turn your thoughts inward. Allow yourself to feel waves of peace. Imagine a magic pond. A duo of swans glide gracefully over the surface, followed by their reflections. Rays of sunlight angle through trees and flowers mingling their colors with the water. You see deep garnet reds, delicate pastels , flashes of yellow, vibrant greens and calming blues. None, however, compares to the single white lotus blossom floating in sync with your breathing. As you breathe, your pace is deep and smooth, then barely noticeable. This relaxes your pulse. In this state of perfect stillness you become aware of the lotus blossom's fragrance, which inebriates you as it hypnotizes the senses. You hear chanting: Grant us pure thoughts like Buddha so we may reach enlightenment.
