Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today we are going on with our second stage in our Pilgrimage to Santiago De Compostela ... in which we follow Paulo Coelho as he takes the Camino also know as The Way to St. James. In our first CD Special of this month we arrived at Saint Jean Pied de Port and registered as pilgrims of St. James. We met Mme Lourdes and got or first instruction given by her to find our guide.
Just a few kilometres outside Saint Jean Pied de Port we met our guide Petrus, a guide who also is a member of The Tradition, the nature religion (similar with Pagan and Wiccan), as Paulo is. Petrus will guide Paulo and us along The Way of St. James and will learn us to find back that what we have lost as what Paulo lost while he was initiated in the Order of RAM ... For Paulo his mistake was greed, but for any one else it can be something else. We all are on our Path to Enlightenment and everyone of us will sure have things to settle or seeking for. A pilgrimage can bring you great insight and that''s why we become pilgrims to get insight in our lives, hearts, minds and souls.
Kneel on the ground. Then seat yourself on your heels and bend forward so that your head touches your knees. Stretch your arms behind you. You are now in a fetal position. Relax, releasing all your tensions. Breathe calmly and deeply. Little by little you will perceive that you are a tiny seed, cradled in the comfort of the earth. Everything around you is warm and delicious. You are in a deep, restful sleep. Suddenly, a finger moves. The shoot no longer wants to be a seed; it wants to grow. Slowly you begin to move your arms, and then your body will begin to rise, straightening up until you are seated
tears of joy roll over my cheeks
I dance in prayer
my Creator gave me joy again -
