The Jade Cave artwork

Illustration by D.Y Abeygoda

You are sitting on the floor of a cave. There is a hole in the roof of the cave nearly six feet across.  Every inch of the ceiling and walls and nearly all of the floor is covered in beautiful jade stone in all of its rich variations. A translucent, light green jade with veins of a slightly darker green variety blanket the walls, flowing down and across the floor. Stalagmites of soft-looking, white “mutton-fat” jade rise from the floor of the cave. All of the stones are illuminated from within by an unknown, shimmering light source, filling the space with dancing green tones of light.

You are seated near the centre of the space, feeling the slightly cool and incredibly smooth jade of the floor against your legs. A few feet in front of you at the very heart of the cave is the only surface not covered by the beautiful jade stones, a perfectly round circle of rich, brown soil, centred beneath the hole in the roof and sitting in a pool of sunlight. All is quiet except for the distant musical tinkling from a small waterfall deep within the cave, out of sight.

As you sit quietly, a soft, green glow appears at the centre of your own chest. It is the light from Anahata, your Heart Chakra. The green light intensifies until its warm energy fills your torso and, eventually, your entire body. Its radiance joins the light from the jade stones around you.

You sit, basking in the jade light from within and without for a while. Then you notice slender shoots push themselves up through the soil at the centre of the cave. A stalk of bamboo is growing, stretching towards the sunlight streaming in from above. You’ve heard that bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, but this one, seemingly nourished by the jade light, grows faster yet. You sit and watch as the graceful stalk reaches a foot, then two feet, then three feet high with no signs of slowing. You watch for several minutes until the leafy head of the plant pushes through the hole at the top of the cave and into the sunlight.

Sit and enjoy this image for as long as you like.
