Once you become aware of the true nature of reality, everything you do becomes an act of reverence. Simply living your ordinary daily life with full awareness becomes a complete practice of meditation, a perfect form of worship, an offering to all beings and to Being itself. Tantra teaches that because there is only One in the universe, all actions are in truth the Divine exploring itself, reverencing itself, worshiping itself."

I am touched by this passage in my reading because it seems a beautiful, succinct explanation of all that I have studied over the years - all the paths, the religions, the physics, the teachings. And it has helped me to understand the balancing work that I do as I assist others with my craniosacral therapy, massage therapy, energy therapy and the words of counsel that arise during those times. During my therapy I find the vibrations of the thoughts, feelings, sensations, memories, perceptions in my client that are supporting a way of being that is creating a twisted body, a pain in the knee, a misaligned joint, a confusion of life choices - any aspect of life. I am shown by connecting with the Divine life in the client and in myself where to proceed as I interact with the body and the electrical field it houses. And this knowledge gives me great peace. While I have confidence in my work and ability, and after a time was able to surrender into a space of being, I struggled with not understanding or being able to put into words how the balancing was occurring. And when I was not actively in the healing space, I struggled with insecurity. The peace also comes from a great acceptance of who I am and all that I do. May we all find the peace within, nurture each other and treat each other with respect.
