waking up into dreams

If you are a pattern for the world,

the Tao will be strong inside you

and there will be nothing you can’t do.

If you accept the world,

the Tao will be inside you

and you will return to your primal self.

…..Lao Tzu/Stephen Mitchell

when we have felt deeply held, all paradox and indifference soften……we ground deep in the earth and forget that we have surrendered……the merging of mercy and grace……

Reality is inherently grounding. The more in touch with it we are, the more grounded we feel. This is as true of the facts of daily life as it is of our true nature. Life is multidimensional, ranging from the physical to the subtle to formless awareness. When we are in touch with physical reality, we feel physically grounded. As subtle levels of feeling and energy unfold, we feel subtly grounded. When we know ourselves as open awareness, not separate from anything, we rest in and as our deepest ground that is sometimes called our homeground or groundless ground…..John Prendergast

when the sun comes up

As swimmers dare

to lie face to the sky

and water bears them,

as hawks rest upon air

and air sustains them

so would I learn to attain

freefall, and float

into Creator Spirit’s deep embrace,

knowing no effort earns

that all-surrounding grace.

….Denise Levertov
