On Sunday I woke up early to do a sunrise meditation with a few of my Tuatha. After I got over the way to early in the morning factor It was really very lovely. We went to a place called Garden of the Gods and watched the sunrise wash down the face of Pikes Peak. Songbirds twittered in the winter sun, magpies did their strange dance around us as we pearched ourseles on an outcroping of rocks and the crisp winter wind caressed our faces turned towards the sacred peak.
I don’t pretend to be the best at meditating, in fact I’m still very much a beginner but it was nice to get out and feel the earth waking up. It was nice to spend time with my Tuatha members and just be together…one with it all and yet have an inkling of understanding that there is so much more to discover and be on the brink of an incredibly new frontier of knowledge and getting a glimpse of seeing the world with different eyes.
It’s hard to explain and it’s not just meditation but the entire oblaire program that I’m working on.(and life in general really) I’ve done very few things in life that I actually have to work hard at. Most of the hobbies and skills I’ve picked up I’m just naturally good at anyway so actually having to work for the ground I gain in Gaelic, meditation and the Celtic way of being makes it rewarding and beautiful.
It’s a difficult road to walk a new path but with mornings like Sunday where your body tingles with the anticipation of standing on new ground….well it makes it worth it.
