I could see oh so clearly
The dancing stars
The cold moon
The crystallised breaths in the air.
The mystical path
Unwinding before me
Is laden with gold.
Gold threads of silk
Clouds in candyfloss pink
Waiting to catch me when I take my huge leap.
Below cresting opalescent waves of the ocean carry me forward as
Piano notes continue to trickle through timeless space.
I pick up seashells and pocket them on my way to heaven's gate.
Pounding into the softening sand
Bring me back to the cosmic threads of here and now
One deep inhale of this steaming bowl of Tea
Sends me to the mountains.
Pine smoke rises from the temple yonder
One tinkle of the bell
And I am home.
How are you my beloveds? I had a most quiet yet magical birthday yesterday, and I am inspired, so empowered by the wisdom of the Universe to serve.
On January 1 at 4pm GMT, I am hosting 2021's very first 2-hour virtual Zen retreat. Zen and Tea are one flavour, and with space for meditation, contemplation we can elevate our mind, make friends with our bodies to create a sacred home for our spirit, and from feeling this wholeness that comes from the alchemy of Cha Dao, get back in touch with our souls. 🌟
