On an idle sunday, the divine mused. And thought let me fantasize. And so it did.
The divine with eyes closed, began to create…something that went on to become a reality in one of the universe he had created.
Here’s his fantasy.
Once upon a time, there lived a queen.
A queen, a ruler and yet another special soul.
One day she returned to her palace to take a break from all the people she had to meet. And all the formal, false pleasantries she had to exchange. She was feeling very heavy. With all that she was doing, thinking, feeling and wearing. So she decided to pause. She went to her special part of the palace. An empty room. Her favorite place to be herself.
She stepped up to the mirror.
And suddenly realized what all is she wearing
Felt, am looking good but this weight is not bearable anymore.
Think, am wearing too much
So first she took out all that she felt bad about
Which made up her evening gown,
Her gown was laced with her stories of miseries, of abuse, of unjustice, of hurt
It was very difficult to just let it slide,
As she was wearing it for a long time.
Every time she wore this gown, it would ensure some sympothy, some love, some attention coming her way
It was very difficult to let that go, as she thought this will stop even the trickles of love coming her way
Very reluctantly she let go of that
She felt lighter and at ease. For the first time she felt like singing her heart out.
What a release it was. First painful and then turning joyful.
She danced naked across her room. feeling the ecstasy and the freedom.
And she danced and she sang.
As wildly and as passionately and as fully as she could.
Finally she was free. And then she was tired and sat in front of the mirror.
And while dancing she realised there was something more she was wearing.
Her precious diamond necklace…
each diamond was precious.
Some diamonds were gifted by her parents, some by her brothers and sisters,
Some diamonds had come from teachers and some from kind neighbors.
And some diamonds, she didn’t know where they had come from. And yet they were there.
She had made this diamond necklace painstakingly, through out her life.
And adorned it with pearls of wisdom from the masters she met on the way
and the self-help books she had read. And from the tapes on developing confidence she listened to.
The necklace was made up of her beliefs of right and the wrong, the shoulds and should nots, doing and non doing, good and evil, the sacred and the profane, the light and darkness…etcetra, etcetra, etcetra…;-)
As she started to remove it, she felt she need not.
Its just a necklace which she could keep on
as the weight of the gown had already dropped.
When suddenly she realized where she is going, she discovered, she doesn’t need that as well
So she unhooked the beautiful necklace which always adorned her neck and was close to heart,
And slllluuur, it fell,
She could fully feel the necklace sliding down, the cold heavy necklace touching her breasts, her stomach and her yoni
Falling down and carrying everything, she held stored in her body.
And as the necklace fell. There was a beautiful silence. She was lill more lighter.
A kind of silence, she had never heard before.
And that was gone too…
She began to feel lighter…a feeling she never felt before
The nakedness began to feel exciting…little did she know that the real revealation is yet to come.
As her body revealed and glistened in the mirror she witnessed the extra-ordinary
For the first time, she discovered that the light is not reflection of light from her body,
It is emanating from deep within her body….
Lill surprised she looked closely in the mirror
And was exhilerated to find the light coming out through the pores of her skin
As she glimpsed the light, she wanted to connect to the source
And was wondering what does she need to do for the fullness of the light to emerge,
And in the moment, she discovered her body was made up of all the good she was holding onto that she believed she had.
She was now confronted with a difficult choice
To transcend the body and embrace the light within or to stop here at the sacred nakedness of the moment.
There came a voice that said…it is your choice, choose the body or choose your naked being lying dormant deep within for centuries
Once a queen, happy and at ease with all that she wore to look good and acceptable,
now was the moment of truth…
She pondered, i can stop here as the weight of the good and bad is dropped
After a brief pause, she said let me take a step and see what lies within
So finally she chose to let go of the body…
And the miraculous unfolded
Suddenly everything went silent,
a long pause.
And at the end of the pause, there started a huge celebration
A celebration of a rare phenomena in the universe
The whole universe was singing and dancing. And the music and dance reached a peak.
And why is should not celebrate. At least, someone after a long time was waking up to her light within
And the celebration was needed. And it amazing
As she was busy enjoying and witnessing the celebrative universe.
The ultimate was being revealed
the only thing she saw in the mirror was pure light,
A being that expanded and pervaded everything and every being.
Finally she was realized she was awakened
A goddess was born
With eyes closed. The divine smiled. What a wonderful fantasy. Thinking he should create more often. And went on to have his evening tea with friends and family.
