Indra's Net of Pearls

Schnerfimage by Schnerf

The L0veVibe Global Meditation of Sunday November 1, 2009 focuses on the symbol of Indra's Net of Pearls. We invite you to integrate this idea into your regular meditation practice, or even to devote your session to it. Contemplate it, feel it, paint it, sing it, experience it and -most of all- Love it. Please remember the purpose is connection, so if you do not resonate with a symbol presented here, then feel free to choose your own.

Imagine a spider web with dew drops. At every node of the web there is a drop. Filaments connect every drop with all of its neighboring drops. Imagine the spider web be so big that it fills an entire 2D plane. Combine this web with similar webs that are positioned perpendicular to the first one, and our construction now fills 3D space. Repeating this we can fill all dimensions.


Imagine a beam of light inside this multi-dimensional web. It bounces off one dew drop as it gets reflected, then bounces off another drop, and so one. Considering the infinite multitude of all light beams travelling around, we see that all dew drops are connected by Light. When you look at the dew drops as "pearls" then we arrive at the spiritual idea referred to as "Indra's Net of Pearls". This idea expresses All-That-Is as a collection of nodes connected by the web and the light beams.

All Is One ~ All the nodes are intimately connected. All the connections and nodes are interdependent to support and suspend the Whole.

One is All ~ Looking at any one pearl, we see the Light coming from all of the other pearls reflected in it. The Light coming from any of those pearls is itself also the reflection of all pearls in that pearl, ad infinitum.

Just as one small piece broken off a hologram is still able to project the entire hologram, any one piece of Creation has the entire Creation inside.
