The Partner Within of Life-Love-Light
This Partner Within works well for both a warming up and closing down meditation. Sometimes you may want to use it to simply bask in the glory of Pure Life and Love. Other times you may want to let yourself become immersed into the universal beauty of Pure Light. You are capable of entering into all three states of delight. The more you practice, the more intense your understanding and compassion becomes.
Eyes closed, silently chant the word “Life” over and over again until you eliminate all other thoughts. Then, picture the energy of Pure Life starting to glow from the inside of your mind. This is the power of Life. Pure Life is the energy that wants what is right, that wants to survive and prosper. Gradually slowing the timing of the chant, switch your focus to the rhythm of your breath, using a single breath for each chant. As you inhale, expand the energy of life inside your physical mind. As you exhale, visualize life radiating throughout your body: torso, arms and legs. Concentrate on the energy of life glowing and radiating throughout your entire being.
Now, immersed in the energy of life, chant the word “Love” with the same rhythm that you obtained with the word ‘life.’ Concentrate on a feeling of pure and selfless appreciation for all the love you have ever known. Allow the beautiful warmth of love to sweep over you. Love’s essence is unconditional; the joyful feeling of wanting what is right and what is best for all the people involved in your life.
Now, by chanting the word “Light,” Pure Life and Love now become one with your personal God/Divine, one with all of Earth’s life. Here, the triple powers of the universe wait: Pure Life for your human left-brain, Pure Love for your higher right-brain and Pure Light for your highest whole-brain. These partnerships stimulate the growth of universal and unconditional love, a love that is capable of pursuing the noblest of goals: seeking what is best for all. Concentrate on the power and meaning of any of these three words for as long as you wish.
