Oven of Warmth

The Fire that turns
a dead corpse into ashes

The Warmth that bakes
a delicious cake in my oven

The Love from the Heavens
granted my soul a sweet rebirth.

An invitation to The Void Space

Dear Readers & Writers of all sorts,

Since I received a notification this morning that this site has 101 followers, as of now, I thought it’s time to invite you all into the Void Space with me – right here, and right now.

Please be with me till the end of this post, if it’s safe.

It is not important to sit with an upright spine, but if you feel good about it, do it so.

Give yourself a half-smile.

Release the tightness of your body.

Relax into your peaceful smile.

Please don’t force anything. You’re good as you are, in your own way.

Trust this process, Trust this guidance.

Breathe in, stay with your breath as you breathe in.

Breathe out, stay completely with your breath as you breathe out.

Tap into that ‘Ease’ that you may feel right now.

Become a flow with breathing as your anchor.

Breathe in, Breathe out.

There is nowhere to go, nothing to do.

Stay here, with your breath, now.

If your mind brings something – a thought, a sensation or an emotion,

No matter how pleasant or unpleasant it might be,

Remain as an Observer and continue to stay here, with your breath.

You are safe here. You are beautiful here. You are your True Self here.

Welcome aboard. You are in the Void Space now.

Thank you for being here.

Please let me know how did it go in the comments. I’ll be happy to guide you further with obstacles that you might be facing.

Please visit my first-ever post here, where I gave some tips for the beginners in Meditation.

Note:- You might want to do your next sessions with (half-) closed eyes.

The most received post is The Mirror with 76 views, as of now. I’m really happy about this.

Thank you all once again for being here. It feels like a Family – I’m happy and grateful. Looking forward to knowing you all more and more through your writings, comments, and your continued presence & support.

Much Love,
Velu

Delusion

I wept for hours
I thought I lost you
Wandered hopelessly for months
Knowing myself all along deeper and deeper
It wasn’t easy but I kept going inwards
And I realized, you are never lost nor gained
‘Cause you are what you are
And you are me
And you reside in my Heart
When I sing the song of our Soul,
You whisper in unison with me –
And ‘God’ is our Orchestra Conductor
I love you and I am not deluded anymore.

Am I in Love?

The world seems unchanged – But
My inner being feels infinitely expanded.
Am I in Love?

The songs that once set to tremble me
Caress me lovingly,
Am I in Love?

The anxiety, the preoccupations that dimmed my moon nights
Seem to have had come to an Eternal Silence in Brightness,
Am I in Love?

This sudden movement of Fire-like cool-breeze in my Heart,
This Peace, Joy and Freedom to be in Existence in this very moment,
Are these signs that I am in Love, again?

Knowing that this ‘strange-yet-familiar’ Feeling shall go away (and come back),
I remain incredibly unchanged in this Spiral Loop of Eternity
Yes, I am in Love.

Being in the Void Space – Episode 1

This series of posts will give you an idea about some of the experiences that I go through in the Void Space .

Today, I was in the Void Space and I told a part of myself : “I love you”

Him: “But, why?”

Me: “I love you”

Him: “But…”

Me: “I love you”

Him:

Me:

….

Him:

Me: “Hey, are you there?”

Him: “Yes!”

Me: “I love you”

I believe Love should be an unconditional phenomenon which requires nothing but one’s own Existence. However, when we grow up in a competitive society, it is natural for us to believe that we need to exhibit certain qualities through our academic/sport achievements so as to feel loved. I am glad I happened to meet a part of Me that needs reasons for someone to love him. Whenever he reappears, I’d redo the same sitting in the Void Space.

Have a good day!
