deep in the breath
(from “not poems: moments of Awareness,” © Donna Thomson 2018)
Our greatest gift is Awareness. It is inherent in all of us, and indeed in all life. Mystics and sages of all the ages have identified consciousness as the fundamental ground of the universe, the source of our being. There are modern thinkers and scientists who are coming to the same conclusion.
In these times, we need to grow our Awareness of our awareness, to enter into that greater consciousness from which we arise. We need honed, clear, loving Awareness to navigate the waters these days. We need to experience the spacious Awareness that is our birthright, our greatest gift, to receive the nourishment, relief, support, and guidance that can be found in that field.
It matters to take time (about 16 minutes in this instance) to experience that Awareness within us, to feel it, to know it is there. It will help us make choices in alignment with that which is in Order, and Balance, and Harmony and Flow, that which is true, just, and kind. It will help us see clearly what we need, what the world needs, and to act accordingly.
Moments of Awareness throughout the day illuminate our way, and bring greater peace and harmony to our lives
May all beings be happy, peaceful, and free of suffering.
