So now, here, we close our eyes, and focus. Visualise the mists above the lake again and imaging floating amongst it, looking up towards the pentagram that has a different coloured sphere on each tip. They are green, yellow, red, blue and gold. Now, as we watch from in the mists, the green ball glows brighter and brighter and the mists rise up closer and closer, carrying us with it towards the glowing sphere. In a flash of iridescent turquoise, we pass through into a limitless space of total wall to wall green.
It is a place of simplistic joy. A Garden of Eden and as we float through the scene a young ballerina dances innocently amongst the luscious hanging ferns and into a flora glade below us. She is uncontaminated by experience, still in her childlike purity. This is a place of beginnings. Of simple beauty. Of nature. Of essential truth and burgeoning awareness. Here is the seed that sits at the pure centre of all ideas, before they become clad in the garb of outer manifestation. As we quietly pass over head, the garden and the ballerina begin to dissolve back into the green. Just ahead we notice a circular yellow patch standing out from the fading green. It is an opening into a tube that is lit yellow by the light at the end of the tunnel. Moving out of the green sphere we are now traveling along the glowing tube towards the vibrant yellow light. Brighter and brighter and brighter until we float out into another limitless space of solid, wall to wall yellow, and through it we float, effortlessly...
Down below, we can see a gathering of light beings in what appears to be a huge spiral amphitheatre. Like an etheric choir, each being is meditating on a great thought and, as a group, they translate the totality of abstract principles, down into accessible and useful ideas. It is their responsibility to project these thoughts into the receptive minds of humanity. Those were the lights we saw shimmering across the sky and turning into sparkles that flowed down the river, streaking through the water below the surfboard. Pure inspiration. A whole range of different colours and notes ripple out from this gathering so as to cloth these great thoughts in way that we can understand. But ahead, we can see a red patch appearing through the yellow. This doorway into another silver tube is lit soft red by the light at the end. And along it we pass, through into a more intense red.
Exiting the tunnel we find ourselves floating in a hot and steamy foundry of force and substance. We realise the weight of powerful ideas, the strength of conviction and the mass of a focused intention. Here, things are made manifest by the use of the directed will. We discover that we can have an impact just by sustaining the power of persistent determination. As we float higher above this factory of busy activity, ahead we can see a blue patch, through the fading crimson glow. This is another translucent tunnel, lit blue by the light in the next sphere. Now we enter and slide along it toward the glowing blueness at the other end.
We exit into a soft blue world. All around us is a deep blue sky with sparkling stars and we are floating over endlessly rolling sand hills, tinted faint light blue by the sky. Below we can see five gum trees around a small oasis. Sitting on the bank is a naked glowing aboriginal elder with click sticks. He beckons us down to join him. Slowly, as we descend, we are fascinated that we can see the infinite sky and the stars reflecting so clearly in the surface of this small billabong. We come to rest across from the elder sitting on the opposite bank, and we begin to paddle our legs in the cool water. As we watch the surface, to our amazement, the reflection stays still and the sky begins to ripple out away from us! The more we splash the more the stars swirl and bob and twirl and roll. Although the water is refreshing, our legs quickly become cooler and cooler in the icy blue pond, until it is hard to tell exactly where our legs end and the water begins? We feel at one with the entire scene.
Looking down at our lower legs in the water, we notice that they are becoming the same substance as the sparkling starry liquid which is now moving slowly up our legs. We are absorbing it into our body and becoming star-stuff. Every atom of our glowing body is becoming a star with an orbiting body circling around it. Our body is the universe! Still further up come the stars until they fill our torso and our arms, right up to our shoulders. Now it fills our head and spurts out through the top in a fountain of ecstatic oneness. However, the starry liquid was not becoming part of us, we were becoming part of it! To our surprise, our individuated sense of self slowly melts away into the pool, leaving a trail of trickling galaxies dissolving into the sand. We are the body - immanent. We are the stars - transcendent. We are the stars, swimming through the stars. We drift across that starry sky leaving the oasis far below as the old man waves good-bye.
Now, we are heading toward a golden swirling galaxy. It comes closer and closer until we dive directly through its centre and find that it is in fact another doorway into the final translucent tunnel. It converges into a solid golden glow ahead.
As the silver tube disappears, we are floating in limitless gold, over a network of golden gossamer threads. It is from here that all is made complete and whole. This is where the path comes from and the lake and all the realisations including this final realisation. It is the understanding of the path, of this brilliant space and of the pure creative potential we all have within us. Holding this vision, we can now see the completeness of the whole journey and the golden threads that link all things together.
Floating below us now, coming out of the limitless golden hue, we see the entire is-land clearly for what it is - a symbolic journey, to be explored and conquered. We see that, from its golden beaches to its molten golden core, we have now been able to open a channel so that the life can flow out to us and, therefore, to the world. We have also built a solid bridge that connects us with the essential centre of our being. A place to where we can return any time The final realisation is that the journey exists and so therefore, does the place and the space within. As a whole. As a complete path, waiting for us to discover it.
From this golden sphere we must now return to our body down below at the base of the crater rim. See it there floating on the island before us, and now move slowly toward it, down through the mists. Slipping back into this golden body, we open our inner eyes in awe of the total whole before us, aware of the power and control now awakened and at our disposal. We know that, with an act of will, all we have to do is see ourselves where and how we wish to be, and we are projected there. And so, now, we wish to return to the outer world, to serve others with what we have found. With an act of directed will, on our own this time, we retrace our path, just as we reviewed it before. The doorway. The river. The Forest. The cave.
Now we can rest in the knowledge that everything is alright and through each of us the purpose will unfold as we allow it. We are the channels. We are the doorways. Where we place our focus is what we become. Our belief and creative imagination can carry us far beyond these outer forms. What matters is that we do consciously make the journey and activate the connections, holding the vision of our completeness. There are many paths and many rivers and many mountains and many realisations. Use this one as an introductory framework to begin exploring the worlds within. Maybe we can all meet one day, diving into the oneness... of our own radiant self...
