#5175 – “All of you is holy.” Just breathe.

Edited by Gloria Lee

“Forget about enlightenment. Sit down and listen to the wind singing in your veins. Feel the love, the longing, and the fear in your bones. Open your heart to who you are, right now. Not who you’d like to be, but the being right here before you, inside you, around you. All of you is holy. You’re already more than whatever you can know. Breathe out, look in, let go.

When you walk through a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life all around you, but you will also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step. Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life.Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves. Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves. So death isn’t to be found anywhere.
There is only the metamorphosis of life forms.
What can you learn from this?Death is not the opposite of life.
Life has no opposite.
The opposite of death is birth.
Life is eternal.Stillness Speaks

I used to have a skill.
I can’t remember what it was.
Now I am employed by God
just to breathe.
I am the caretaker of the universe.

hiding in this cage
of  visible matter is the invisible
pay attention
to her she is singing
your song
Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.

One thought on “#5175 – “All of you is holy.” Just breathe.

    Are you looking for me? I am in the next seat.
    My shoulder is against yours.
    you will not find me in the stupas, not in Indian shrine
    rooms, nor in synagogues, nor in cathedrals:
    not in masses, nor kirtans, not in legs winding
    around your own neck, nor in eating nothing but

    When you really look for me, you will see me
    instantly —
    you will find me in the tiniest house of time.

    Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
    He is the breath inside the breath.
