I love my aquarium fish, not only for their beauty, but also for what they teach me.
Fish swim with joy. They dart up and down, side-to-side, sometimes even backwards. I imagine that they have no idea what water is and they think they’re flying.
The lesson for me is that we have a hard time seeing and understanding in a complete way the context in which we live, simply because we are so utterly immersed in our surroundings.
At this hour of transcendent importance for humanity and for the whole planet, we, who have chosen to follow the Path of Cafh, are called to make our contribution to propel forward the evolution of human consciousness and of all life.
This reflection in the form of a back-and-forth dialogue with the Divine Mother is inspired by the discursive meditation exercise taught in Cafh. The meditator has the feeling that his life is not very significant. He starts by asking the Divine Mother a question:
How can I pursue meaning in this life?
