As we hugged, saying ‘Goodbye for Now’, it dawned on me our Hearts had just kissed. We became One for a cosmic moment, embracing fully the wholeness of one another, and I experienced the Bliss of the resolving of polarities.
What do I mean by the ‘resolving of polarities”?
This same friend had just walked me through a powerful installation of a conscious awareness of inner patterns/programs that embody, perpetuate and co-create Bliss. Ecstasy. Ekstasis.
Ekstasis is defined as this: The state of being beside one’s self or rapt out of one’s self.
Ekstasis is a word I use to describe what it feels like when I’m in the ‘flow’. When I am tapped into the rhythm of Source, in harmony with Self and the World, and fully able to embody, perpetuate and co-create inspired connections and experience the state of Bliss.
So, the ‘resolving of polarities’ is the Divine Union. It is the merging of This and Not This. It is accepting All that IS, embracing fully the quantum dimensions of present-moment expression,and acting from a place of integrity and Unity. A willingness to surrender the illusion of separation and become ONE. One with Self. One with Another. One with Life. One with God. One with the energy of Love.
Such is the nature of a Hug.
As we feel into this truth, we become aware that Hugging is a Divine Union, a merging of This (Self) and Not This (Other). It is an acceptance of All that IS between us, as we embrace the Cosmic embodiment beside us, and become ONE.
This state of Oneness, and the Love that flows through a hug, continues long after we have said our Goodbyes and parted ways. The coming together has touched our soul so deeply, kissed our Heart so completely, we are able to return to one another instantly by remembering the HUG.
Interestingly, hugging is akin to Gratitude (you knew I’d slip it in, right?)
Gratitude is both give and receive. When we enter a hug, we are both giver and receiver, Embraced and Embrace-er. In every way, hugging transcends what words cannot convey, allowing our hearts to speak the pure language of Love … and so comes the resolution of polarities - the Divine Union. With it, the experience of ekstasis.
Perhaps the definition, ‘rapt out of one’s self’ also means ‘wrapped out of oneself’. Ahhhh … the ecstasy of a HUG.
So beloveds … I’m feeling especially grateful today. Grateful for a propensity towards hugging. (Did I tell you I LOVE HUGGING?!!!) Grateful to my Nana, who embedded a deep appreciation for being hugged. Oh! to have those mushy Grandma arms wrapped around me. Grateful for my children, young and old, who still allow me to lay some Hug Love on them, and return it just as quickly. Grateful for a (k)new friend, whose presence and guidance elicited an even deeper appreciation of something so dear me.
So I’m praying forward the Love, flowing through the inter-web a big, mushy *HUG* … a Heart Kiss from me to you … in Gratitude for this gathering space, to shine light on inspired insights and for all the times your Love has kissed my heart.
OOOOoooo …. guess what just came thru …
even in the word HUG, we find the resolving of polarities:
