MEDIATION ON THE MOTHER OF THE UNIVERSE: As an example of a personal myth imagine you are the child of the Mother of the universe. You rest in her womb comfortable, warm and protected. She loves you with the love of the entire universe, complete, absolute and unconditionally. There is nothing else but her and you, and her energy continually floods your being with absolute love and health and the energy of being. You are her one and only care, the one and only object of her love for all time. She encompasses you and cradles you in a sea of eternal bliss at the center of being, at the center of the universe. There is no other time than this. There is no other place than this. Your only purpose is to completely open your being to her, and just bathe in the radiance of her love for ever and ever. Her heart beats in the silence. Somewhere far away pastel galaxies begin to swirl but that is no concern of yours. There are no more cares, no more responsibilities. All is well, all is perfect. The universe unfolds in perfect harmony, in perfect enlightened bliss according to the divine plan in her mind. She thinks the universe into existence. This time things will go right!
You awake and are born into the world. She cradles you in her arms and suckles you with the warm milk of life, with the rich energy of the Tao that fills and nourishes your body with blissful Chi. Together you are complete and whole in the center of being, at the center of the universe. Later you sit on her lap and open your bright clear eyes and look out at the world from the protection of the glowing cradle of her arms. You are enlightened and see the world as it really is in the slow progression of the galaxies and the bursting stars, the eternal dramas of the life of all creatures. You watch with love and compassion for all feeling the warmth and fragrance of her breath encompass you, feeling her glowing Chi radiate through your being completely, each together merging in one glowing energy body of eternal love, complete in itself forever at the center of being as the far away world slowly revolves.
You are the Buddha, newly reborn to enlighten your world, to save your world, to enlighten and save the world of your old discarded self, to open the doors of your mind and wash the world of your mind clean and pure and to dwell therein forever bathed in the love of the Great Mother of the Universe! This is how it should be and this is how it is and will be forever and forever.
This meditation should be done in comfortable uninterrupted silence. It will help improve the often dysfunctional personal myth most people have about their relationship with an imperfect human mother who wasn't always there and with a world which just doesn't seem right. Spin your own version of the myth and it will help replace that now with a perfect world that is right!
You can also hold this myth in your mind and use it anytime during the day to ease the trials of the day and improve the quality of your Chi from whatever to full of comforting love. Of course you could also reject it as rubbish. But consider, is it any less rubbish that your current self harmful personal myths about how the world is? You may think they are somehow 'true' since they may have originated with unpleasant events. But those events do not exist in the present now do they? You have absolute free choice in the myths you hold in your mind, so why not choose those that are best for your mental and physical well being and your spiritual growth?
