The gift

3 posts in this topic

The gift

I was walking

slowly

doing my meditation

it was the softest evening

the sun setting

long beautiful shadows

gracing the fields

with barn swallows

flying, zigging and zagging

the way barn swallows do

joyful in their flight

allowing joy to become conscious

then I came upon

a tree standing quiet

I stopped observed

then without warning

silence enveloped me

a quiet without strain

no anxiety

nor fear

just an all encompassing peace

for a second I was free

I stopped

stunned

waited in the silence

then

out of the deep peace

a voice, or was it?

I do not know

the message

was gentle in its teaching

it said

"how can you be fearful

when surrounded by so much beauty"

it lifted

the strain, anxiety, fear

retuned

I walked on

changed in my depth

if not on the surface

I am still changing

slowly

afraid to accept the freedom

of such love

why (?) I ask myself

perhaps fear still has a hold

less yes

but I am still chained

waiting in silence and faith

staying open to the gift

that was planted

in my depths that day

slowly taking root

hopefully bearing fruit

Beautiful imagery, Mark. May i say here about being chained, IMHO none of us are chained, but many of us experience the illusion of it. I went to hear a a Tibetan Rinpoche speak last night, so I'm feeling kinda all Buddhisty right now.

LOL, I agree, it is the mind that imprisons us, it is our choice to trust that frees.

Peace
