Hello, friends! I hope you will all consider joining us for a hang out, agenda free (more about that below) under the Banyan Tree on this magical April New Moon. Please join me in reading Nataly's story. I love her raw honesty (always appreciated here) and humor, not to mention a very cool drawing. And, we can all relate to only wanting got be in our I AM -ness rather than joining yet another wacky group. Last New Moon I also did not feel like joining, so I get that too. In that case, I just stopped by to wave and say hello, allowing whatever the creation is to unfold. Indeed, I think that is what the Banyan Tree represents to me. No energy, no agenda creation - just allowing passion for the I EXIST to bloom in whatever form it takes. ENJOY!
Finally I am in front of my desk to write you.
There are lots of layers in this story but I am going to keep kind of short and focus in the Banyan tree.
I haven't been in the banyan tree since last January when a couple days before the gathering I felt so much pain inside of myself. I remembered I sat in the rug at my room with my intention to connect with the experience but I was washed down with lots and lots of emotions, sadness....a terrible deep sadness that kept me crying and crying. So, intentionally I chose not to connect with the Banyan tree because it felt not right and appropriate to do it in such state, mainly in respect of myself and the rest of the members.
Over the past months a lot has been happening inside of myself and in my life and for these reasons I haven't being attracted to the Banyan experience.
But more than a week ago I felt one of those quantum leaps happening slowly but surely. So, in the past Monday, April the ninth, my house was quiet, my sons were in school and my husband was out of town. The house felt so good and I felt incredible happy, joyful and with an unexplained tranquility- peace with myself. So, I sat at the rug in my family room to connect with myself like I do every other day.
I only wanted to be with myself and my cat. I closed my eyes and I took deep breathes and suddenly I felt the call to go to the Banyan tree. I felt not resistance from my humanness, and I was very curious about the whole thing.
So, I invited my cat to come with me. I simply wanted to be floating with my cat under the tree.
So, I stood in front of the magnificent and always luminescent (with a golden light) Banyan tree. My cat was standing next to me. I took a deep breath, dropped aside anything that was not mine. I took my flip-flops off and I arranged myself into the lotus position right into the thin air. Then my cat jumped up into my lap.
I felt an incredible sense of contentment and freedom.
So, at the beginning I was just contemplating the magnificent beauty of the golden Banyan tree. I was observing in precise detail the branches, the leaves and the trunk-all emanating this calming and loving light. I felt in a state of wonder- like a child in a state of AWE.
Then, I started to feel the Masters. They were hovering at my left side and suddenly I felt one of them as St. Germain. This took me by surprise. I asked myself, "Is this for real St. Germain??"...not answers came out from him. He remained hovering with his eyes closed but I knew it was him.
Then, I saw Yogananda and he was doing the same.
And then I saw El Morya, surprisingly he was looking at me. He put his right hand up as a sign of greetings and he said to me, "YO!".....he cracked me up!.....and I said, "did you really say YO!"....and I was laughing and laughing while he remained with a Mona Lisa's smile in his face.
It was so unexpected and so charming to be greeted by him in such a funny way...and I Loved it.
As you can imagine I was floating under the Banyan with a big smile on my face. I left the Masters by themselves. Then I noticed that at my right side were many others floating, some were high and some were low. I felt like exploring around the tree but I didn't want to interrupt anyone. So quietly, my cat and I took a tour around the tree. Then we came back at the starting point and I stayed there in my Beingness for some time. It was a sweet feeling. Then after a while it was time to comeback and that was it.
Lauren, at first I hesitated in sharing this story with you because of the "odds details" but then I heard TRUST, so here is the story.
The feeling of this encounter was so fun for me that I wanted to make a quick sketch of him which I have included here...just for the fun!
Hugs to you,
We are so glad you shared, Nataly. It truly is all just for fun!! The fun of being in this magical space.
Someone send me this Tobias quote on the definition of agenda. I quite enjoyed it although I sense there is so much more to playing under the Banyan Tree without agenda.
“Do you know that agenda, by definition, is having a desired outcome of a situation? It is placing your energy on a desired outcome. Dear friends, when there is agenda, you are playing the game of duality. Period! You have a desired outcome. Take away agenda, and you take away duality. Take away agenda, and you allow yourself to move into a new energy. It takes you outside the realms of duality. It takes you into a new consciousness, a consciousness of ascension that is not so focused on the energy of two, duality, polarity. Know no agenda, dear friends. Oh, you will be highly challenged with this. You will feel naked without agenda in your life. You will feel that you are – how to say – without backbone. You will feel like a jellyfish without strength, because up until now agenda has given you strength, great strength. When your agenda was strong, you were strong. You became strong in the Light or strong in the Dark. You were strong in the battle of duality. For a period of time you might feel wobbly. You might feel like Jell-O without agenda. You might feel like running back to duality, where there is a security blanket of agenda." -Tobias, “Know No Agenda”, Shoud Seven: The Ascension Series, Feb 2002
IN THE ABSENCE OF AGENDA, THERE IS ONLY PASSION - PASSION FROM THE SOUL, PASSION FROM THE I AM. Today, an invitation to come play in passion for the I AM WHO I AM, if you choose to. And like Nataly has shared here. Thank you so much for sharing, Nataly!
