Deep Breath- Deep Exhale

Taking a deep breath....And exhaling. All things are in divine order.

"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference."

this reminds me of a Chris Rice lyric... "Deep breath. Exhale. Breathe in deeper still.... Sorry I forgot your right here, I cup my hand around your ear"

Such beautiful and simple truth. It reminds me of a Thich Nhat Hanh breathing mantra that goes:

In...out...deep...slow...calm...ease...smile...release. Present moment...wonderful moment.

Here’s a koan to go with your responses:

Q. “Much talk before enlightenment. Will you give me a few words after enlightenment?”

A. “All things are in divine order... Present moment...wonderful moment.”


What is. Appreciating things as they are. Allowing.

Simple, yet curiously difficult to live. And this is what we long for, to live Truth, to embody Wisdom.


The check question, sharp as a razor:

What of the child at this moment dying of untreated AIDS in a suburb outside Francistown, Botswana?

"What of the child at this moment dying of untreated AIDS in a suburb outside Francistown, Botswana?"

We are thinking this child is someone, something other than ourself and we do not realize our passing, our transition from body to allness is a mere illusion mared within the throws of much crying and suffering.

This is not a child dying from AIDS, this is Spirit creating, recreating- we choose to see our little tale of birth and death played out in the child. This child, anyone of us, is merely Spirit playing hide and seek with Itself.

"Oh, there you are!"

When every day is a good day... playfulness abounds. Being so playful I see you were not caught in the net of self and other, of good and bad.

Smiling,
