When you stand inside these caves- surrounded by magnificence that took centuries to form. You see the amazing and yet unassuming beauty of your surroundings and still there is a bit of harshness to being in a cave. A sense of being cut off from rest of society. And a flash of insight dawned on me.
In alternative healing where crystals are believed to contain special soothing and healing properties, Stalagmites are of particular consideration in building strength and sustenance. They take a long time to form and by their presence they instill in us the patience to diligently work at our goals and plans. Not to look for an immediate “return of investment” but believe that in time, we will receive the fruits of our efforts.
It is important to note that, yes, we all should avoid danger as much as possible, but if confronted- we need to face our challenges head-on!!
Standing there inside those immensely wonderful caves me gave a very clear and deep insight- about the act of creation itself!
When we typically think of creation, we think of all our external actions and what we have created in our life. Have we created a successful career for our self? A large bank account? A successful business or enterprise??
Who have we become??- are we happy with who we are, who we have become- our life situation, our state of mind, our relationships and so on… at some level all these makes up our external self. Then there is our faith, our beliefs, our psychological make up, our way of thinking and all the intricacies of our mental dimension, which makes up our inner self.
It is very essential to remember that, to create a life of immense depth, value and beauty takes time!!
