These are not my words, although they represent me well. A wisewoman wrote them, one I’ve recently stumbled upon quite serendipitiously, describing my mystic journey this summer. As I read this passage, I felt she must have been present in some way to know that I’ve been losing track of time, losing my ability to remain grounded.
My absorption in the knowing of myself stretched out through most of the summer. It was during this time that I had few words outside of my mind and heart. My need for solitude became greater than before and I sought it for nourishment and enlightenment.
Thank you to the universe for bringing these words to me during a time when I needed them the most. Thank you for allowing me to use your words when I had no words present. Thank you for manifesting this healing concept in my world.
At some point during my summer of secret travels, they appeared with this image and I give credit to Sukhvinder Sircar for their origination. For more of her beautiful writings and images, visit her blog, Joyous Woman! and find her on Facebook.
Nowadays, she is often losing track of time, day, week and month. Her absorption in the moment, in her work, her art, her prayer is getting deeper. She is beginning to ‘lose time’. When she arrives back from her secret travels, she says ~ ‘I don’t know where I went’. Yet she knows she was in a zone where everything already exists.
Some day, when you chance upon such a woman who is deeply absorbed and ask her ‘who are you?’, chances are you may see a knowing coupled with a blank expression. There are no words yet to her knowing.
Sometimes she worries about going missing. Yet loves the sweetness of loosing herself. The more absent she is, the more present she gets.
She’s meeting herself in unknown ways.
