In the deep of winter I always do at least 10 days of meditation alone in silent retreat during the long winter nights. Besides allowing myself to rest, to fully let everything go and sink into the spacious emptiness of just being, I get to witness the unravelling and death of my ego patterns and pass through the abyss from 'self to no-self' only to find that I am born again in the abundance that is the nature of life itself. Fresh, innocent... alive in the beauty of resounding presence, the unending here-and-now, that has not a single problem with anything that IS. This recent retreat was particularly powerful and healing for me, remembering again that out of this emptiness comes all creativity, healing and inspiration. The word captivated me. Inspiration is being in touch with the spirit that dwells within, and is the source of breath and life that is the same energy that moves the galaxies. It is truly without end. And so, I begin again, and as Rilke says: "The song remains immaculate."
