Welcome to this new day. Sailing offshore out of sight of land, I watched hour after hour as the waves formed, peaked and melted away. Here is another day in which to form, peak, and melt.
Let any noise, inside or out, recede into the background so that silence comes forth into the present here. Feel the great quiet come from both the earth below and the sky above…
Find and feel your physical being. Notice the space that you occupy in the world, this way that you are in the world with your body: breathing, alive, and moving. Your feet, your legs, your middle, your chest, your arms and head, are all the expressions of you.
Feel your feelings stir and awaken. Perhaps it is some small tenderness, a flower bud forming, so fragile, paper-thin. Protect it, nurture this first feeling, whatever its source, whatever its name.
Some essence is birthing all the time with every breath. Help it along. There is integrity here, who you are. Encourage your spirit to come, to be present and to express. Let it shine through your eyes as you see and as you are seen today.
May you go into this day with the knowledge that you are like a wave in the ocean, a small brief part of something so vast that it stretches your imagination, so deep that you see yourself differently.
Your gift today is forming.
