Bask and Blaze
A ribbon of orange along the southeast horizon peeks through the trees and into the bedroom window signaling sunrise soon. After yesterday's blizzard, the sky looks clear and the Fahrenheit gauge on the deck reads 10 below. A good time, I think, to practice bask and blaze, a meditation technique we played with last Thursday night in group.
We start by receiving – softening and opening to the sunshine of the universe. Focusing on the in-breath, we draw the radiant energy of Love into every cell, gently stretching our capacity for fullness, letting our hearts smile as we bask in radiance.
After a while – no hurry – we invite our attention to the divine spark at the center of the heart. Nurturing that spark with the in-breath, we notice how it grows naturally – from spark, to flame, to blaze, to roaring blaze.
Quietly sitting, attending now to the out-breath, we blaze extravagantly, joyfully radiating warmth and light.
By basking and blazing, we enter the flow of radiance that is the universe. Loved and Love, we practice our true nature:
Suns of God.
