This is a wonderful “as above, so below” shot of the Hanalei Pier, the mountains, and the ocean. What is interesting to me is that the pier, the heart of Hanalei Bay, is not reflected in the water. What is visible is only the physical structure; the reflection of the pier can not be seen for it has been swallowed up by the shadows of the mountains.
I find this very symbolic of the condition of much of the world today…whereby the physical structure and content of reality dominates our awareness and the spiritual reflection or recognition of who we really are has been clouded over by the shadows of seemingly mountainous burdens and, at other times, by the distractions that have made us forget to turn within for solutions.
The part of us that is invisible, can shine like the Sun, when we pay attention to it. The light of the sun like our own light can illuminate the shadows. Knowing yourself from the inside takes effort and determination to turn away from the distracting ‘splendor’ of the physicality of everything around us, including our own bodies, in order to view the true splendor of our spiritual selves, the tiny point of light which resides in the center of the forehead. This can be experienced through meditation and is the foundation for Raja Yoga Meditation which the Brahma Kumaris teach worldwide.
A BLESSING from the Highest on High~who is also invisible, incognito, and yet ever so powerful when we turn our attention in that One’s Direction~
“May you be bodiless* and pass with honors with the stage of being detached…have the practice of remaining beyond your words and thoughts. Let your soul become merged in the Ocean of Peace. At the end only the bodiless* stage will be useful…and make you victorious.”
*Definition of BODILESS: This is the state of awareness of your true identity as a point of light, a sparkling star, sitting in the center of your forehead while in the body. It is actually a dual awareness of being in the body, and being separate from the body~This is the truth of our existence, since I, the soul, as a being of light- am eternal, whereas the body made up of the elements of earth, water, air, ether, and fire) is oh so temporary.
Remember you are an eternal soul!
