Underneath the waves of daily thought is our ocean of being. As the world pulls on our attention, occupying our awareness, there is the ocean of our awareness without busy thought to explore and receive. There is the great silence within our heart. This is the contemplative path. The pilgrimage into the heart is found in all religions, enjoyed by mystics in all cultures. We let go. We let be. Our attention comes deeper within. Underneath the thinking world we discover another world, the world of quiet, connectedness, oneness, infinite heart. As the waves of so much thinking become less, our knowing of the ocean of our awareness grows. Our heart, our beingness is present, brilliant, and loving. We realize we are on the journey of awakening. We are coming home.
