the one that strays

You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come, to take you back. 

Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through. 

Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.

Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day. 

Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.

Be excessively gentle with yourself.

~John O’Donohue

and it’s ok to scream for the angels….

inquiry for today~ and this is how we open to this too……

when the veil is thin

How do we ride the waves of pleasure and pain

without being tossed around by our inbuilt

reactive nature? Over time, through cultivating

mindfulness practice, we can learn to access

a more steady presence in the midst of

such turbulence.

~Mark Coleman
