The conversation

The conversation 
this morning 
where the soft sand gave way
when my bare foot came down, 
the dew drops from the grass
gushing down the ankle
and the sound of small twigs breaking
on the forest floor.

The conversation
yesterday with acro yoga
with the weight and delicate finding of ease
as one balances in midair upside down on
some other bodies feet.
Not knowing anymore where one body starts
and the other begins.
Only sensations are perceived
of stretching, balancing, weight, movement
and the world seen from unusual angles.

The conversation
at all times on going
as one moves and sees,
hears and smells
tastes and touches
all and everything that appears
in our field of perception.

A fullness and aliveness always there
but rarely noticed in richness and intensity
as most of our attention stays captivated by
the belief in the personal construct.

While at each moment a million things are going on
the narration of keeping the me alive
hijacks the direct perception
of what each moment is presented to us.

The Aliveness without filters.
What a rich a marvelous universe

What if..

What if we always already are
the wholeness,
the fullness,
the aliveness.

What if, even if we do not feel it,
are already whole and complete.

What if we could trust this message
because it resonates with something inside of us already.

And because the one saying these words
inspires confidence.

And an unshakeable permanence 
unheard of in this world of shifting shapes 
filters down through the words.

What if because of this trust in the message
a bridge is build between what is and what appears to be.

And one follows naturally the way back home.

What if it only takes the allowing

the consideration that it is possible

entertain the possibility.

What if...

Shape shifter

When we say we are a person
what we are actually meaning is a combination 
of an energetic contraction and unexamined ideas.

A person makes it sound like something solid
and independent,  separate.

While if we look closely 
it is an ever shifting amalgam of memories,
habits, reaction, convictions, wishes, 
aversions,  opinions.
Which are mostly not questioned,  
but which change whenever we do. 

And this is connected to a body which 
is also changing shape ever since it
made its appearance.

It is all those believed ideas which 
keeps the energetic contraction into place.
