The sky is in my feet
What else is there but space and more space in between
What cannot be tampered with?
I’m hitting a wall
Visiting fortresses does something to the soul
I’m not sure what exactly
Squared in behind massive walls
From the safeguarded vantage point of its highest tower
Sa tour de garde
The Infinite unfolds
The Sun sets away, so far away
Why do we confine what can blossom?
Why the need to defend and protect? To feel safe.
Safe against what?
As far as I can see, breathe, connect with
All that you and I can be and do is so much more than we know
So much more than we can fathom
Entangled in petty needs and defensiveness that atrophy the soul
A groundless fallacy
The one that has led us astray on countless occasions
This ageless belief that our soul is trapped in our bodies
Think about it
Why expand the realm of the possible?
Why bother ploughing the furrows of the limitless?
If we deem our bodies as enemies that need domesticating
Our bodies are havens, containers, vessels
Not cathedrals of separation and control
As this new year is beginning
My greatest wish is one of openness, inclusivity and embodiment
The more at ease we feel within this intrinsically wild and beautiful demesne
The more our soul can sing
The more gracefully embodied, the more at one with our surroundings
The more in love
With Mother Earth and Father Sky
Let this simple beatitude beckon a new world
Where we are delivered of walls and fortresses of the mind
As the futile buttresses of separation they truly are
Let us take loving possession and peacefully sit
In our bodies
Reflecting the expansiveness of the universe around us
Another exquisite holding
With reverence to all that is
Feel into this boundless peace
Breathe it in
The world doesn't need happy
It craves the stillness at the heart of all things
