THE DANCE BETWEEN CHAOS AND ORDER -8

CHAPTER 8, IMAGINATION

by

Harvey Thorstad

Imagination works best
when set free.
The following visualization
may allow you to approach
cosmic consciousness.

As a basic exercise
close your eyes and visualize
a green plum.
Let it ripen to red
and then blue.
Repeat this visualization a few times,
and then repeat it again
with your eyes open.

Imagine yourself walking
down a path.
Let yourself notice the detail,
what there is to see,
to hear,
to feel,
to smell,
and to taste.
Walking down the path
noticing great detail
with all your senses,
reveling in the experience.
You notice a fork in the trail,
you choose one branch
and continue walking.
Off to the side
you notice a small lake in a meadow
with flowers and trees.
You allow yourself to sit
comfortably against a large oak tree.

You notice a deer.
You know all things are connected
and allow the connection to the deer to increase.
You see what the deer sees,
hear what the deer hears,
feel what the deer feels,
smell the flowers,
and taste the lush grass.
You become aware
of a nearby squirrel
eating an acorn.
You become one with the squirrel.
You see what the squirrel sees,
hear what the squirrel hears,
feel what the squirrel feels,
smell what the squirrel smells,
and taste what the squirrel tastes.

You let your mind expand
and become one
with the birds twittering in the trees
and soaring overhead.

You allow your mind to expand further
and become one with the trees,
the grass,
the butterflies,
the dragonflies,
the fish in the lake,
the lake itself,
and the soil nourishing the plant life.

You feel a thrilling, exhilarating rush
as your mind expands
to include all life on the Earth,
the Earth itself,
the stars
and the universe.
It’s ecstasy.
Your understanding
of being one with the universe is boundless.
You savor the experience
and let it expand your sense of knowledge.

Slowly,
you allow your senses to retract
into the self which is you.
You flex your arms and legs
as you reacquire your sense of individuality,
that unique part of the universe, which is yourself.
You marvel at the insight gained
by allowing yourself
to become one with the universe.
