there is a certain energy to an awakening soul. and feel into this, as you may have already known in your own awakening experience. it is a sense of spacious luxuriousness. and i am not just speaking here of those countless aha moments or epiphanies that is so common to all awakening souls. but a luxurious feeling. its more in the feeling space first and then travels, so to speak, to the mental space where thoughts and reasoning happens. a luxuriousness of breathing easy. of walking slowly. smelling the breath itself. blinking slowly perhaps. staring at things or surroundings or people as you walk by in the streets longer perhaps. a feeling of being luxurious within ones own skin and body, is strongly indicative of just one of the many so called symptoms of awakening. and this isn’t very commonly recorded in many places, as i have come across. but you know its there.
that languid stretching into what is being comfortable within ones own skin is something i have seen within other beings who are awakening also. it is unnamed. there is no earthly way to describe the feeling except in pointing towards that. it has a quality of having a lot of smiles, a lot of sighs, and it maybe something because you see and you observe perhaps something you’ve never quite seen in that before. it may not be necessarily be something new. it maybe perceiving something already there with new internal feeling about it. its more than just bland awareness. it is more feeling as well. it is more than a feeling. it is the feeling of a childlike sheer curiosity and wonder. it is a sensuality and yet it is beyond sensuality. it is not sensuality as an external temporal experience, rather feeling and becoming it as a whole being. it is dancing to an unheard tune and yet music and dance become a blend that resonates into it. dancing and art become a natural extension to this luxury. not something that is to be done, but an extension of it. even daily chores and work start becoming extensions of luxuriousness. safety and protection start seemingly going away from you in stages. for what is there to be safe or protected against, when everything is conspiring to embrace you in its arms and just play with you. there is that again. play. but a play not born of hurriedness or competition, but just an ease of luxuriousness, a slow dance. sighing a lot. a lot! at the beauty and cuteness of everyone and everything around. of course it has always been beautiful. but now you see it!
so you see, how this can become an expanded sensual living, moment to moment, day to day. obviously one does not want or have the desire to veer away from such a state. perhaps it is one reason why masters of yore and present, are just content to sit and contemplate the beauty in them, around them.
