The Truth Of Breathing

river  6dfb87b036196808fb07bcd49e5c75bf

I come here to remember,
to feel more deeply the truth that I know.
I breathe in, the sound of my breath
blending with the river of running,
and the wind gently blowing by.
I close my eyes and go within.
I am one with the Infinite;
like the river, I am connected to the Source.

Here, in the peaceful clarity of the symphony
of the leaves rustling in the trees,
I easily call to mind and know the truth
of my Divinity.
Like the constant rhythm of an ocean’s waves
moving against and away from the shore,
my breath gently rocks me,
soothing me, reminding me I am whole.

The simple truth of my connection to Spirit hums,
a vibration in every cell of my being
repeating itself with every breath: I am.
I am one with God.

A Gentle Pause

Butterfly pause  56bffbc6e894e17934cadc28fbedc390

I hear the softness of the gentle breeze this day
Reminding me to pause and rest awhile;

There is no need to hurry on my way,
The tasks shall wait until this moment passes.

For now, be still, my soul, and breathe ~ ~
Then breathe again, the breath of Life.

Let Peace pervade your tender heart and mind,
as calmness comes into your very soul.

In quiet stillness let all striving pass away,
For you, Beloved, are pure Love, pure Light.
