Meditation opens us to the Eternal One Moment

I once asked myself the question “What is the thing you want more than anything in the world?” I answered: “to be happy.” The thing is that I didn’t know how deep “happiness” could get, because I always have had my highs and lows, and I completely recognized those kind of fluctuations as the way life should be: based on the changes of emotions, feelings and moments.

I’ve been part of The Awakened Life Project for a month, and among the many things I’ve learned, one of the most valuable is, without a doubt, the fact that, in the deepest dimension, we are already Free: free from everything that limits and separates us from the rest of the universe, free from fear, problems, pride, opinions, desires, competivity, suffering, comfort, among many other patterns that keeps us from experiencing who we really are....

Meditation opens us to the eternal one moment in which we can get to taste the perfect harmony that lives within us, free from thought and prejudices, free from future planning and past reminiscences. A space full of paradoxes, where there’s no time or form, where the empty space fulfills our soul. This meditation retreat was my first one ever, and I can feel how it renewed my spirit, how it recharged my energy and gave me a thousand more reasons to pursue the happiness I’m seeking for.

If I asked myself the same question all over again,  “What is the thing you want more than anything in the world?”, the definite answer will be “eternal spiritual longing”, that’s the thing I want more than anything in this world. That’s the thing that has opened infinite and exciting roads, and I’m sure that’s the thing that will always provide never-ending happiness thorough our journey in the quest to reach something higher. I can recognize my authentic self now, because when I talk, my eyes sparkle from tears of joy: I feel more alive, more inspired and definitely more true than ever before. I’ve definitely found my world!
