the wine of immortality

In Chinese mythology, Xi Wangmu is the goddess of immortality and the heavens. She grows a peach garden with peaches that grant immortality.


“Become drinkers of nectar – all of you – drinkers of the wine of immortality!

Tread the path of immortality, where no death exists and no disease.

When you feel power within yourself,

when new light dawns on you from within,

the more you can keep it concealed in utter calm and stillness,

the more it will grow in intensity.”

What do these words conjure up in you? Do you feel a deep stirring within from the time when humans were all connected to their immortal souls? What does it mean to live in the awareness of eternity, of immortality? How different would my life, my behavior be if I lived in this awareness? Would I take each step, speak each word as if it counted and would be felt by all beings everywhere forever? Can I leap now into the faith of the Great One that always knows its immortality and Eternal Presence?
