Inspired by ‘The Sacred Presence of Water’ presentation by April Silas, RscP, Oakland Center for Spiritual Living, Oasis, 28March2012. (1) an experiential exercise; (2) a guided meditation.


OASIS BAPTISM (1)

She calls us toward renewal of our personal ‘I Am’

Before I think, my body moves to the altar.

Wash Away the Past –

She pours cleansing water to bathe my hands;   

dries them, holds them in soft cloth.

Walk Along the Path –

She aligns me to silver carpet sprinkled with water;

urges me to walk toward unknown depths of fulfillment.

Quench Your Thirst -

She offers clear water in transparent glass:

I drink fully, and again - all that is poured.

Soul quivering, body tingling, spirit refreshed: 

All that I Am - transported. 

I am baptized to The One.


OASIS BAPTISM (2)

 I float on mystical Ocean – palms open to the sky, trusting.

Soft currents sway my being in loving embrace.

Gentle waves – from temple to toes – undulate my being;

wash away an old word of limiting pain (reluctance).

 

I merge with Ocean – cool brine; taste of warm tears.

Gracious currents caress deeper self.

Loving waves - from toes to temple – flood my open heart;

            reveal a new sound of infinite joy (acceptance).


I am released.  I am with The One.
