Sacred Dream Guest

by Shervin on November 20, 2017

Imagine that you have your dream meeting with a special person that may be the most beautiful physically, mentally and/or spiritually. This person will be your dream guest at your residence for couple of hours.

Your dream has come true! But your residence is not tidy and dishes are dirty. You either decide to ignore the mess and hope you can dim the lights so nothing can be seen or you are panicking and telling everyone how little time you have to clean.

The sacred dream guest arrives. You start distracting the guest not to see the mess or you start telling the guest how upset you have been and at the same time frantically start cleaning your residence. At the end of night you are disappointed. You even did not get a chance to have a meaningful conversation.  All you have is bragging right about the visit but no real deep experience.

This sacred guest for most people is feeling of love and intimacy. We all crave for it and yet we do not keep our residence (heart) tidy and clean for our sacred dream guest.

What keeps the dishes dirty and residence untidy?

It is unresolved emotions such as fear, anger, hate, sadness, self-pity, jealousy and resentment. We typically avoid such unpleasant feelings hoping nobody notices them or we talk about them and do not feel and process them in our body. To feel a feeling we need to invite the feeling into our body without judgement and be with it for a while (like slowly washing a dish calmly without any resistance or complain).

When we have a tidy residence and clean dishes, we can be truly be present and can experience our sacred dream guest with bliss and joy.
