Today I Rose So Deeply In Love I Thought My Heart Might Burst

Joshi Tearing His Mum’s Heart Open With Love

I’ve¬†heard it so often from parents, about the love that you have for your children, how it’s like no other love, and a lot of the time when they’ve said it I’ve thought, “yeah, yeah … whatever.”¬† Until today.¬† Perhaps it’s¬†that¬†surge¬†of¬†oxytocin from this morning’s breastfeeding session, who knows, who cares? … when you’re deeply in love¬†is there¬†any need to find the reason?

Last night I went to Rodney’s house for long kriya.¬† It’s my weekly outing – and I love it.¬† After kriya¬†Rodney read a beautiful knowledge sheet¬†from one of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s (Founder of the Art of Living Foundation) books.¬† It said something¬†about how there are¬†3 things in life which bring you deep rest¬†– ¬†love, meditation and seva (unconditional service to others).

Well, last night I got to bed late because after doing¬†kriya I was full of energy and feeling great.¬†¬† We woke a couple of times through the night and Joshi fed and then this morning Joshi¬†woke up at 4am and didn’t want to go back to sleep, so we got up.¬† By 7am I was ready for lunch.¬† 9am felt like 2pm.¬†¬†My prana was steadily dropping.¬† I started¬†day-dreaming about taking a nap with Joshi.

And then I put the music on, and I wrapped Joshi in the hug-a-bub, and I danced with my baby round the living room. We danced and danced.  It was so entrancing.  Joshi was smiling and I was spinning.  Completely intoxicated with the moment.  And then Joshi fell asleep.  Ah, my chance to sleep has arrived!  But I no longer felt the need for sleep.  I think my tiredness must have vanished when I looked down at Joshi.  There he was, sleeping against me, all snug and peaceful.  His heart against mine. And in that moment I rose so deeply in love I thought my heart might burst.

Sri Sri’s words are still resonating¬†inside me¬†… seva,¬†meditation and love all bring you deep rest.
