I love this!

LANDLOCKED IN FUR

Version 3

I was meditating with my cat the other day
and all of a sudden she shouted,
“What happened?”

I knew exactly what she meant, but encouraged
her to say more–feeling that if she got it all out on the table
she would sleep better that night.

So I responded, “Tell me more, dear,”
and she soulfully meowed,

“Well, I was mingled with the sky and now look–
I am landlocked in fur.”

To this I said, “I know exactly what
you mean.”

What to say about conversation
between

mystics?

Create a clearing……pause, breathe, slow down……

Clearing

Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world
so worth of rescue.
