Everything takes time. As we are born some time is taken to learn how to walk and talk. Then some other time of our life is deducted as we go to school and start having tests and getting marks and being evaluated. That is slowly but definitely,as a part of the concept process, making us to start sleepwalk. Every day the same, one issue dealt, with another arising never to stop. Than we go to deep sleep trying to protect ourselves. At least we think that is the way to be protected. Than we lose ourselves and try to compensate it with material things. And than it comes! Just it is the matter of choice To take or not to take the challenge! Unknown it is as we are somehow emotionally crippled and full of fear to proceed to the open, to the sunshine and the beauty of our world.
I visited couple of times monastery of Apostle Andreas situated on the “nose” of Cyprus at the place called Rizokarpaso.
Every time when going to and from the monastery you pass a huge sandy beach. It always made me to wish to spend one night and feel the energy when it settles from visitors,renewing its, I thought,healing properties.
And it happened.
It was early afternoon when I came to the place overlooking the beach, about a kilometre from the monastery.
The view was different from other times. Or my expectation and feeling made it different !?
I was asking myself why I have decided to spend night now and not before. Could be that all what we wish to happen takes time, giving us the opportunity to recognise that divine force and let it overwhelm us.
I decided to spend some time overlooking the beauty, trying to digest it ,awaiting for the sunset.
Sand, some bushes, trees, rocks and sea ! And waves and sounds and Moon and Sun looking at each other.
Is it possible that Moon was winking to the Sun or maybe,just maybe Sun to the Moon? At least that was what I felt. Or they both were making jokes about me! Saying something like ” Look at this sleepwalker! It looks like he is trying to awake himself! What will happen? Will he succeed to be one of those taking and making the challenge work for him?” I was thinking if this kind of conversation was possible. But it is definite, with Sun and Moon everything is possible and impossible!
That was the time.
You feel it without any interference of anyone. Just you and your inner self.
I started slowly to go towards the sea. While walking from the hill top something has happened.
What , you might ask with doubt that anything of importance could have occurred during a “simple” downhill walk.
I felt that I passed away and was awakened in the paradise! Tears, a lot of tears started to flow with no logic explanation. But logic and paradise do not go hand in hand.
When approached the sea I went inside, started to swim and felt that I was born again !
I felt that I was born again!
I did feel that I was born again.
I did not want this to finish before it was somehow memorized and stored in newly created, or let’s say renewed soul.
All the pain has left. All negativity gone. Just a pure soul and my body caring it.
Do you seek paradise? You will find it! You will once find it inside of yourself. Give it a try!
Let sensors to give you the sign that the time has come. The initiation for me came from the atmosphere around Apostle Andreas Monastery and Sandy Beach.
But even that this place carries tremendous spiritual energy, it can go wasted if you are not prepare to receive it.
So just be patient and set your inner self free of pain. And it will come. The soul will take it’s right place connecting you with the divine.
At least that is my feeling.
P.S. And awakening it was as I repeated the same procedure early in the morning this time talking with the stones and bushes. Such a beauty the conversation was!
