The Kingdom of Love
Before you proceed with this meditation,
take a few moments to prepare
yourself. Place yourself in a comfortable upright position. To allow
your energy to flow freely, your spine should be erect. It may help to
think of your spine as a column of golden coins stacked one upon
another. Allow your breathing to flow easily and evenly. Gradually
allow it to deepen and become slower. Let your muscles relax from the
top of your head to the tips of your toes. Let go of your random
thoughts and spend a few quiet moments contemplating the following
It is written that the Kingdom of God is within, but what if you
could see the Kingdom of Pure Love on a map? What would it look like?
Would there be borders? If there were, where would the borders be?
Might they be changing constantly in response to the state of mind of
the citizens of the Kingdom? Might they surround individuals and
clusters of people for some moments and then shift as the thoughts and
emotions of those people changed?
Imagine now that you are looking at a large map and you can see flowing
beautiful color wherever a person loves God, loves life, loves another,
does a kindness with a pure heart, or shares beauty with another.
Where are you on the map?
What colors do you see surrounding you?
your mind can you see those colors brightening, expanding?
breathe freely and to relax your body.
Let go of negativity, fear,
hate, or any other destructive thought or emotion and feel the joy of
pure love in your heart. Feel the many connections you have with others
and imagine a flow of pure colorful light flowing between you and those
whom you encounter in your daily life.
Know that your
love, your compassion, your kindness spreads over the map of the
Kingdom flowing to places you cannot see, that you will never know. In
the same way, see and feel the love other people have let loose in the
world. Good people live nearby. They extend their joy, their compassion
into the world for you to receive. Be open to connection. Be free to
receive love, not for what you do, but because you are deserving.
Because whether you recognize it or not, there are those who extend
their love to you and wish you well.
Allow the light of all that is
good and beautiful to grow in your heart. See it pulsing, growing,
spreading outside of you, reaching out to the world.
