When the sun is dancing on the leaves and blossoms are lit with some internal glow, we are invited to live in this moment.
Cares fall away with the errant breeze as we are drawn into the compelling cadence of life.
Just, in this mindful moment, birdsong tickles the ear and the blood sings in response. Now, again, and again; rhythmic melody without thought, a clear resonance; the sounds of the natural world.
We breathe with the grass and the sun and the endless blue sky; knowing without knowing. It just is. Even without words; especially without words, the suchness of it, is.
Trees populate this sanctuary. Willowy and thick. Graceful and strong; young, ancient, evergreen and deciduous; dripping with spring blossom or bud.
I bow to one behemoth and ask
permission to join.
Granted, he says.
Tenderly, I place my palms on the calloused bark. As I breathe in, the evergreens fill my nostrils with aroma. Energy begins to stream into my palms,
warm and tingling. I am filled with the essence of this tree-being; flowing like sap into my veins, filling me with life force, wisdom, and a deep gladness.
Right now. Right here.
And when the sharing is done, we come apart.
I bow again. My gratitude, Lord...
And when the long deep drink is over, a thirst for what is real has been quenched.
May this information benefit you, those you love, and all sentient beings, everywhere.
