The Hug of Zero Point
I now call this the hug of zero point. I didn’t used to hug. In fact, I hated the thought of hugging people other than my family. When I went up to hug someone I was greeting, I felt very uncomfortable. I cringed inwardly. I didn’t really see the point.
Any of those who have experience my hugs recently will find this hard to believe. So, what changed? It started with a hug in Hawaii. I was at a spiritual retreat. Most people were greeting other people with hugs. But not me. So, I spoke to a spiritual leader there and I asked him how to hug. I told him I didn’t understand hugging and I didn’t know how to hug. He gave me a hug to show me. And he said breathe. Just breathe. So, I did. It was ok.
Then what happened is that I began to breathe as I gave a hug. Over time I began to breathe into myself. The idea of hugging began to change, and I began to enjoy it. Then I began to breathe the other person. I staid there for a while and hung out in the hug. I breathed the other person and then I breathed myself.
I went back and forth breathing the other and myself. Back and forth. Then the hug became really interesting. Energy was moving and I was swaying with the energy. And the other person began swaying also. I got such comments like that was really wonderful. It was so peaceful or so joyful. And I love your hugs.
I also began to love my hugs. I went even deeper int to the process as the breath of the other and my own breath became one breath. And then I breathed God. After that I went right away to the breath of God. When I was going to hug someone, I went into breathing God. And I watched as things happened. Sometimes people received Peace or sometimes Joy or sometimes Bliss. I didn’t receive that or, maybe I did, and I noticed what they received. I was given the grace of noticing what they received. I didn’t give it. God did. I just noticed it and witnessed what was given. Or sometimes not. I just felt peaceful or wonderful.
Now I love to give hugs. I call it the Hug of Zero Point. Because when you go into nothing all things are possible. That is where all healing occurs. I could call it the hug of Love. But that doesn’t seem right even though it is true.
Sometimes we hate something, and we wrestle with the idea of it. That thing often becomes our greatest strength. That is certainly what happened to me with hugging. Overcoming the distaste of hugging to the point where hugging for me is now absolute Joy.
