Drop Down Deep

Drop Down Deep

By Amba Gale

In our lives, and in these unprecedented times, in particular, it is important for each of us, if not critical, to “drop down deep,” to “stop what you are doing right now, and to stop what you are becoming while you do it,” as poet David Whyte suggests. To, simply, stop.

It is in the stopping that we can notice, observe, include, and be with, all of the emotional and reactions, the opinions, and the judgments, the resisting and persuading, the complaining and the fighting, we are doing in our minds. Once we have stopped, we can, simply, focus in on our breathing. Having let go of all that mind chatter, having separated our awareness from our mind, we can come present to Now. Now is where there is peace. Now is where there is Presence. Now can even be, where we can create wonder and gratitude.

When you drop down deep, you can access your Imagination, that singular and unique voice which is entirely your own. Listen. Hear what it is saying to you. Trust it.

Drop Down Deep

Drop
Down
Deep.

Drop down,
beneath the Silence

where the Voice
of your Soul
— the Creative Imagination — can find you
and guide you
to your own promised land.

Those promises
were made
long ago
before you were born.

Though you forgot them,
they were vows
that were made for you,
in behalf of your Soul
rising
to its rightful land.

To find that voice,
you must listen.
Listen deep,
beneath the Silence.

Drop
Down
Deep.

The Gift of Alert Awareness

We are all human. Very human. And we are all imperfect, very imperfect. In fact, perfectly imperfect. Our very humanity, our very imperfections, our very wounds and vulnerabilities, flailings and failings, crashing on the rocks, and recovering our well – being, thriving through the storm – all are the Great Learnings of our Lifetime. Living through this pandemic consciously, and all that is being wrought, brings us to great trials, Great Sleep‑fulness, Great Wake‑fulness. If you have been reading Blog postings for a while, or worked with me, you know how serious I am, how committed I am, what a…

Trust In The Way Things Are

Have trust in the way things are and are not.  Love the world, and others, and yourself. Then, you can live in peace. By Amba Gale Perhaps I would not say “Happy New Year to you” this year so much. For that phrase, always said at the beginning of the next year, becomes a cliché, and without any created intention, and thoughtful blessings behind it, means nothing. Clichés have a way of putting us to sleep. Not only that, if you are like me, thinking it, or speaking it brings up the mind at this time. And, according to the…
