    Slowing down. Pausing. Being quiet, still, intentional enough to listen, be with what is, attend… and resisting the temptation to run away, or madly off in all directions – whether in mind, body or spirit. Rooting in one place, whether in stillness or conscious movement. Connecting with nature, music, good company, a beautiful space…

    Meditation, slowing down and journaling. Sometimes walking in our wooded areas.

    Meditation, somatic movement, retreats.

    And also the abundant wisdom that is so readily available nowadays; and sometimes the wisdom to know when it is not wisdom.

    A long car ride with some soft country music or reflecting on my experience/feelings with my closest friend aid me in “going deep”.

    The quietude and slower pace of life through this pandemic has been an unexpected blessing.

    Reflecting on the experiences and learnings from my life helps me to “go deep.”

    Aligning with the geometry of creation and gently letting go. Picture in the 1960’s when you had to get your TV antennae at just the right location and angle, carefully let go, then see the whole world come flooding into your lounge room.

      Or using a metal coat hanger, Don, when the antenna was dodgy.

    It’s fine to keep pace most days with a little gutter yoga, a skeptic’s prayer, and the gratitude of a beggar. But even those days stack up after a while and the world permeates me with its grief, its indifference, its pessimism. Our unresolved emotions accumulate like so much spiritual cholesterol to obscure the light of our radiant divinity; those energetic arteries to and from our hearts, the vessels of gratitude and generosity, begin to harden.

    Perspective supports me in shifting the human assemblage point (“going deep” is a phrase I reserve for the psychedelic experience); perspective and enough time to decipher the signs I’m shown, particularly from a vantage in unspoiled nature where the overt expressions of our normalized collective pathology: pollution, deforestation, the sclerosis of urbanization, have yet to metastasize.

      I loved your simile – spiritual cholesterol, vessels of gratitude…. if I were an English teacher you’d get an A + for that writing!

        Yeah, Michele. I’ve been feeling like a rusty old Tin Man, lately. Probably time I got my ticker checked. I hope your vessels of gratitude and generosity are as clear as a whistle!

    On different days I’m led differently into going deep – some days its my breath, some days its my heart, some days its yoga and some days its a good book. The more noisier my head has beed during the day, the more time it takes to break the loop, find myself and go deep.

    Sophia (Holy Spirit) leads me into “going deep”. A community of raga muffin spiritual pilgrims on their similar journey supports me. We seek spiritual progress not spiritual perfection.

    Going deep for me means seeing a larger picture. I get that view from authors, musicians, artists , and children. Be-ing and not so much do-ing centers me. The recent death of 2 close friends, has put a new perspective on my many years of living and what legacy I will leave.

    Music does; friends who inspire and allow be inspired so that meeting at a deeper level of being is possible; suffering of another fellow one if invited to share and care; letting go of fear in terms of being vulnerable; and love does.

    Calm, quiet, journaling. An activity, like drawing or doodling, that induces flow to take me out of my head for a bit.

    Listening to the insights of others, especially on podcasts, often helps me see myself in a deeper way.

    My daily meditations, self reflection, playing my guitar, listening to music, going for long walks in nature.

    Alternate prayer with calm classical music. Then I can get into a nice meditation. To get my feet back on the ground, I always play rhythmic music from the native Indians at the end of my meditation.

    Self awareness. In this sense: a capacity to look about and determine what internal contradictions are possibly in the way. For it is only when I am internally sorted that ‘going deep’ is even remotely possible. So I cast about for any withheld communications. Any admissions, amends, resentments that will inevitably cloud the waters. This kind of self reflection always turns up something. And only resolving these will provide the clarity needed. Otherwise it is pointless at best, delusion at worst. For without some semblance of the truth I am only play acting. Spiritual pretense is, for me at least, toxic to any potential for enlightenment.

      Thanks, Howie – I especially like ‘pointless at best, delusion at worst’ – those are good to remember if I think I’m ‘going deep’

    I need to be relaxed, feel myself well and save, my mind has to be focused and willing (with a firm decision) to go deep. Sometimes after a big shock it also works. Sometimes it just happenes effortless. Also making music can bring me into a state , where I donˋt know who is playing there. I just watch and listen to myself. To have a job and being able to buy food and and have a warm apartement makes my mind calm.

    Not exactly sure of what hat this question is supposed to mean, but we could use today’s quote to help? Gods light/ love is within us.
