When our eyes are open, we can clearly see depth and glory; reality unfolding.
We humans with our amazing ability
to perceive, to receive, to interpret, to understand.
We make meaning, uncover symbols, and notice the synchronicity of events;
Beings and objects, occurring at once
in the field of time.
We know the feather-duster as a delightful cloud; a vast confluence of tiny water droplets, and dust.
Being mindful, we also discern
a new incarnation of matter and energy that was once, perhaps
a human being, an oak tree, the Delaware bay, or a frog.
If you cultivate a 'child's mind',
you know it is a feather duster.
Momentarily arising to dust cobwebs from the heavens; from the inner gaze
Offering a glimpse of vast no-thingness, and everything.
Breathing in I feel my body
Breathing out I know I am present.
Breathing in I open my eyes
Breathing out I notice everything
Breathing in I know I am naming
Breathing out I let go of labels.
Breathing in I encounter nothingness
Breathing out I feel wonder
Breathing in I encounter everything
Breathing out, every thing is fresh and real.
May this information benefit you, those you love, and all sentient beings, everywhere.
