BEING THE ALTAR THAT IS BURNING FOR THE DIVINE ITSELF — The Female Grail with Durga Holzhauser

BEING THE ALTAR THAT IS BURNING FOR THE DIVINE ITSELF

My path has taken me to India many times, which I adore. I love the devoted ashram life and the spiritual deepening that happens there. My first time there, I fell in love with the beauty of Indian temples all over the country. I love having this sacred space to express one’s love to God. And I love the Indian style of natural dedication. Their altars are full of bewitching perfumes to seduce the Gods, the beauty of flowers as offerings, and sacred vibes of magic chants.

From that visit to India on, with encounters of all these wonderful Ganeshas, Shivas and Goddesses, my life transformed from a godless desert into divine celebration of my Self. For me the revolution was in seeing that Indians believe God has not only one form. God has many forms. God has a thousand forms. This made my world much richer. Indians themselves reflect the abundant faces of gods and goddesses. They say every one of them is an expression of Oneness. My world became a fiesta, awakened in the face of God and the universe.

Growing up as a Catholic, this was my final “goodbye” to enormous pompous churches. Later when recording “Jesus The Book” I learned: Jesus was his own altar. His soul was a bright flame of unending prayers ascending to the father. Everything fulfilled itself within his inner altar uniting heaven and earth. He was set alight in the most beautiful shining allures when he prayed, with his arms raised to the heavens, embraced by nature’s fields of wildness.

the altar is you

God’s flame is also burning in your sacred heart, located in the middle of your heart chakra. This is eternal truth. As the nature of fire we need to nurture with what make the fire burn bright with our love as activity, devotion as expression, prayers as evolutions, offerings as liberation and mediations as endless stillness.

May your heart be an altar, from which the bright flame of unending thanksgiving ascends to Heaven. – St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, Embrace the World found in Danielle LaPorte’s Fire Starter Sessions.

To dedicate oneself to the divine is to tap into the energy stream of all good vibes in the Universe. Turn the radio on!

May I invite you for a Meditation?

Close your eyes and
imagine a burning flame in your heart-chakra (in the center of your chest).
Expand it with every breath you take,
knowing this fire is nourished by the streams that flow from Mother earth into that fire with the blessings of heavens showering from above.

It is within you,
it is your love,
your inspiration
and your life force.
The flame is you,
burning for the divine.

閉上你的眼睛,並觀想在你的心輪(你胸部的中央)有一個燃燒的火焰.隨著你每次的呼吸,去擴張它.覺知到這火被來自大地之母的流與來自天堂充滿祝福的流所滋養.
這火在你之內,這是你的愛,你的靈感,以及你的生命力.這火就是你,為神聖所燃燒.
