Because wholeness, the live recognition that all within is accomplished through connection without, is the beauty of this world and that beauty is the wish of the Divine Creator. To breath a still sweet breath through your nostrils, that is bliss and for that you are alive. Each breath is a gift and it is through the breath that one steps in to this confirmation of Divine Love.
All things, all beings, all rays of light, are connected through a magnetic pulse. This pulse vibrates at various frequencies. Each change in vibratory levels awakens new sounds, smells, sensations -- literally a hum that is a whisper from God. Opening to these higher frequencies is accomplished first by opening to the world around you, in its natural state.
Love, piety, kindness . . . all are expressions of high vibratory states. Each thought directed outwards, each act of kindness, each aha moment seeing a child or a puppy or a rainbow or noble acts or heroic deeds -- there is nothing "hokey" about this, it is allowing the highest frequency of love to ooze in to your skin.
You can feel it in the skin . . . vibrating.
Try this . . . smell a flower or rub a piece of fruit along the side of your arm. Test the types of responses you feel. Each opening of the heart -- either through touch or taste or vision -- allows that higher frequency to "find you". You cannot find it, it finds you . . . because you send out "light beams", like an inner sonar system, that lets God know where you are.
Opening to nature, opening to Love . . . it sends out a signal to the universe that you are ready for a higher frequency. That is the path to enlightenment, the recognition that all is filled with this beautiful pulsing Divine Golden Light and knowing, and feeling, its gentle pulse beating strongly and confidently within :)
