Healing – A Tonglen Meditation Variation
While I was “working on him” I was hearing a lot of hummingbird activity. I noticed that a hummingbird was being chased away from the hummingbird feeder by a wasp! I had never seen that before so it really got my attention. I began to breathe in the battle between them into my heart (where the Golden Buddha was “making miracles happen” 🙂 ) I then breathed out harmony. As I did this the hummer flew off and the wasp landed on the feeder just beyond my line of sight. I continued the exercise and the hummingbird returned, landed on the feeder, looked at me with a message of gratitude, then took a deep drink. Then another hummer arrived and drank, and then another. The third landed in the same place where I saw the wasp “disappear”. I thought it ended up in the feeder (as they sometimes do). Nothing. No wasp inside or outside of the feeder…Harmony restored! I encourage you to play with this technique or “The Relationship Between” (also referenced in that previous post) to experience shifting conflict, discord, pain, imbalance etc. Life is too short to waste it suffering on any level…Get Intuit!
