Crafted out of light-filled pieces of awareness
Just me and my bird friends at the ocean today, rolling around in the sand together, watching as the water cleans out and washes through our hearts, our psyches, our nervous systems… in awe as the beloved in her own way baptizes this body with her grace. I’m not sure how I could be any luckier than I am in this moment, how this life could be any sweeter or more precious, what more I could ever want than this. It is overwhelming sometimes: How is it that one more day is given?
The breath moving in and out, thoughts moving in and out, love moving in and out, feelings arising and passing, sensations flowing here and there, all synchronized with the tides… where do I end and where does the ocean begin? To behold this utterly awe-inspiring Universe – those particles of love as they take form as these grains of sand, as the cells of this heart, and as this birdsong from beyond. It is all so vivid, so luminous, so empty (of concept), so full (of love). How is it that there can be no difference between that which appears in awareness and awareness itself, appearance and nature revealed to be of the very same substance?
