An Ocean of Bliss; Choosing Imagination over ‘Reality’

by Joebaby on December 12, 2010

I went for a swim in the ocean today. The water’s a bit chilly by Floridian terms (74 degrees), and yet the ocean always manages to seduce me into totally immersing myself in her, despite the temperature…

Let’s face it, I’m a sucker for beauty! After donning my wetsuit and hood, in I go!

Swimming out toward the deep blue, I saw a large school of blue surgeonfish working their way across the reef like a flock of sheep, stopping here and there to graze, then slowly ambling on…

Then I started snorkeling across the hundred yard expanse between the first and second reef. With nothing but sand below me, I took the time to go within, focusing my attention on my heart center… I breathed into it, envisioning it

The Gratidudes Matthew and Brad joining me for a dolphin swim in Hawaii; we're singing our Love & Thanks into the Sea!

expanding, seeing my love expand out into the entire ocean…

I saw the love pouring out of me as light, illuminating the sea… It felt so sweet, I wanted to give myself fully to this pouring and I closed my eyes…

Free of visual distraction and immersed in the ocean’s embrace, I surrendered and felt myself continue to open and expand… Waves of love flooded through me, “I” became a wide open portal with total ecstasy on one side and the oceans at the other… “I” was the thin circular edge of this portal, a visceral energetic membrane, a tangible physical wormhole between the multidimensional ecstasy of the divine and the thirsty reception of the oceans…

“I” was in total bliss, a window between worlds… I giggled in reverie…

Amidst this exuberance something stings the exposed skin on my neck… Opening my eyes, I’m swimming through a particularly murky current of water. It looks like canal water; full of bits of plastic and floatsam and trash, and I notice myself pulling my energy back in, as if I can avoid coming into contact with it.

I hear the thoughts ‘Yuck’ and ‘Dirty!’ from somewhere within me, pulling me from the reverie of moments before…

HA!

I know exactly what this ‘polluted’ water needs; this water needs some love! Smiling, I close my eyes and return to the portal, envision infinite amounts of love pouring into these waters, seeing them sparkling back to life with great joy and vitality… My own body is tingling in response… (Its tingling even now, remembering…)

Opening my eyes, I notice a bunch of mullet fish schooling below me… instinctively I begin to watch and follow…

I catch myself – what am I doing?  Trading the adventure of following this school of fish for the reverie of the moment before?

Its an epiphany for me… here I am with a beautiful undulating school of fish to follow, coming up to a busy shallow reef that’s buzzing with life, and I want to close my eyes??? You bet!

And I get what Ester Hicks and Abraham talks about when they say to let go our attachment to ‘what is’ for the absolute pleasure of imagining what’s next. So with another wave of excitement, I turn from my beautiful beloved reef and swim back out into the sandy channel, to close my eyes and immerse myself yet again into the portal of bliss that is pouring through me…

The Ocean is conscious; she’s a vast divine Goddess of beyond planetary proportions. And in my loving her, I become aware of a prophesy I heard many years ago; that the oceans of our world have the potentiality to come alive in a quantum way that has never happened before, and that this awakening is brought about through the power of love, human love…

And in my portal of loving bliss, I imagine this as already done; the oceans of our world teeming with an unbelievable amount of life and beauty and joy, beyond anything ever before imagined…
