Breakfast In Bed


Early morning,
Summery Sunday.
Rusted squeaky fan over my head
Wrinkly, like a ninety-year-old woman
        Buzzing like a bee.
Rain falling on the dirty window.
My warm body wrapped
In silky white sheets.
Surprise me
with a chocolate pancake,
Mickey mouse face.
Soothe my braided hair
with your sleepy eyes
As you carry the plastic orange bedtray,
A white towel around your waist
       Drops of water from your long black hair
       falling on my rested face.
Lots of honey and english breakfast leaves. 
Right here right now is all there is.

"Radiant One,
Please listen to me.
The essence of all teachings is right here.
Open your eyes.

With a soft and steady gaze,
Look out upon creation.
Receive waves of light as they enter your eyes,
Singing of infinity.

The light touching the back of your eyes
Is immortal, born in the primal sun,
Be present to the enlightenment.

This is the ancient knowing,
A sanctuary that is everywhere.
Galaxies are flowers on this altar."

The Radiance Sutras ~ Loris Roche

Quiet Mind


All is silence
By the Balinese pond.
A lonely lotus dancing
Its own hushed rhythm.
Sun still sleeping.
Alone,
She sits crossed-legged,
Bare feet,
Dressed in white,
Palms softly joined in front of her heart.
Eyes face inwards.
Still water.
Breathe in
Breath out.
Om.
A burning white tea candle in her mind
         Warm fire for her thoughts.
           Shh…
           At last
           She finds peace.

To live in this world
you must be able 
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and where the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.

Restorative yoga is a slow- paced powerful
meditative (often candle lit) practice open to all
levels and ages. Only a few poses are practiced
per class together with guided relaxation and yogic
breathing. This mediative practice balances the 
nervous system and encourages emotional/physical
healing as well as relaxation through the utilization
of props- such as blankets and bolsters- to
dissolve stress and tension physically as well as  
mentally.

"He said, 'You become. It takes a long time, That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.'"
