The Minor Lataif Part III: The Deep Blue Essence - The State of Samadhi
We invite you to participate in this retreat in which we will explore the third of the Minor Lataif, the Deep Blue Essence.
Essence is the very fabric of our Soul. When we experience our Essence we have the sense of wholeness. In contrast, the lack of contact with our Essence gives us a sense that we have lost our way home, that we have lost our paradise. We are born full of Essence and free of any conditioning. As time passes and childhood programming settles into our system, we gradually lose the connection to our Essence. We then live in a paradoxical state of existence: we are Essence and yet we do not know it.
The Lataif are the first manifestations of Essence. They are the texture, the material from which the Soul is made of, our Essential qualities. There are five major Lataif and several minor ones.
The Deep Blue Essence is called the Essence of Samadhi, the state of deep restfulness, of letting go and surrendering. It brings us balance, equanimity and activates the self-healing capacity of our system through deep relaxation, freeing us from our conditioning and restoring our orientation and intention toward life. It is the Essence that reestablishes balance in our brain and glandular system.
The Deep Blue Essence brings a sense of inner absorption. We reach deep levels of our existence, to the point where we sense a temporary state which is like losing consciousness. It is as if we dive and immerse ourselves into the deep blue waters that bring a powerful awakening, which arises spontaneously from the state of deep restfulness. This happens as the Deep Blue Essence helps us to completely let go of the control of our nervous system, allowing it to fully discharge. The Deep Blue produces a state in which there is absence of all pain and suffering. It makes us feel guilt‑free. It is in this state when our true nature emerges in its own uniqueness.
