TAO EFFORTLESS EASE
JUST AS OCEAN TIDE
GOES IN AND OUT
IN SAME MOMENT
SO ARE WE BEING BREATHED
BY GREAT BREATHER’S
IN ONE ETERNAL MOMENT
Breathing in, we fortify our courage.
Breathing out, we release our fears.
Breathing in, we strengthen our intention. Breathing out, we open to the way it is.
~Kathleen Dowling Singh
than bearing an untold story inside you.
Betwixt the sand and the foam,
The high tide will erase my foot-prints,
And the wind will blow away the foam.
But the sea and the shore will remain
Once I filled my hand with mist.
Then I opened it and lo, the mist was a worm.
And I closed and opened my hand again, and behold there was a bird.
And again I closed and opened my hand, and in its hollow stood a man with a sad face, turned upward.
And again I closed my hand, and when I opened it there was naught but mist.
But I heard a song of exceeding sweetness.
