Walking in the rain, the ocean is calm and as matched in grey as the soft clouds above do loom and sway I feel the stillness of equanimity and yet so alive is Her Nature Dancing all around me Stepping out to the edge of the sea over a hundred hummingbirds soared to the sky with such velocity they dove fearlessly back down into the thistle and bloom Such precision without hesitation What an approach to love this could be ! The bees came next though there are fewer this year, as they bumbled about their motion gently brushing pollen dust to carry gifts back home so effortlessly Their whole existence is a vessel built for delivering nutrition Simply gathered by being drawn to sweetness What an approach to love this could be! The world outside these rhythms which can be seen and not seen is the fabric we call Harmony weaving all of life together through reciprocity so that our eyes can witness God as us and through us and all around us in a dynamic harmony it is there that our feet can step and dance in the world of creation never out of Time What an approach to love that would be!
May we be stretched
May we expand
May we remain, gentle, at last
A dancer in this dance of life of
release, hold, grasp, dive, soar,
hold and be held fast
rocketing into the heights of dreams
plunging into the refreshing unknown
Resting in the stillness of our core
May the conditions of stillness
Meet your centre once again.
And burst open the blindness
Seeing all as perfection
Oh what an approach to love that would be!
