The River of Time

It is summer.  You are walking in a forest.  The trees are very tall- the light filters through in long beams across your path.


The forest floor is thickly carpeted, your steps making barely a sound as you walk, breathing in the pungent smells of the forest.


You see a glimmer of water up ahead and know you are almost at the river.  When you reach it, you wade into the water.


It is a shock-so cold- but it feels good.  You decide to make for a large flat rock in the center of the river. 


Lie down on the rock- it feels wonderful- so grounding.


Start to relax on the warm rock.  The sun enters all your chakras, easily clearing them of anything you don't need.


Your muscles become looser and more relaxed as you melt into the rock.  You are feeling very drowsy.


Watching the water now, you begin to see events and people from your past go drifting by.  You may be tempted to catch them or hold them in your mind, but instead you let them pass, just noticing them, many years, many people. Breathe and let them go.

Now you see the future coming by.  Once again, you watch the possiblities going by,  not attached, letting them go on into that future, not holding onto them right now.

You are warm and content on your rock in the river, listening to the sound of the water.  Gurgling, rushing, meadering at it moves around various parts of  your rock.  The sun glitters on the moving water-


and now you are glittering on the surface of the water, moving with ease, no tension, moving with the flow, no regrets, travelling with joy, being carried onward and onward to a place you know and to a place you don't know.  You are safe, just journeying, journeying, trusting in the journey of your life.


Earth, air, fire, water, dissolving into Spirit- dissolving back to earth once again.
