Massive rains throughout the night
with a thunder coming in at times.
Now early morning
a gentle cool breeze touching my legs
The songs of birds
muted by humidity.
Sitting here typing
the body slowly waking up
the being alert.
While we sleep, the night with dreaming
is passing by almost unnoticed.
When the luminous awake being that we are
is doing its dance of discovery and creativity,
only at times do we remember.
The part of us which has been put on earth
has its life narrowed down so much,
( closed in by the identifications
with body, character, personality, believes,
tendencies, likes and dislikes )
that only at times do we realize
the magnificence of what we are
and the openendedness of our being.
Uniquely this one expression of All that Is,
and not in any way separated from anything else.
We are where we are because of everything
which exists and happened before us.
The interdependence of everything that exist is
baffling, mind blowing.
Just take only oxygen, which sustains all of life,
which is dependent on the fact that the universe,
the earth had to come into being first.
Where the development of growth of plants had to take place
for the production of oxygen to happen.
Anything which is happening right now,
any activity, or movement can be traced back similarly.
Cells had to come into being, develop, multiply,
and after a miraculous process produce
fish, reptile, mammals, human beings.
For me to make one movement
the whole human evolution had to occur.
My great grandparents had to meet each other
and have children.
The whole universe came into being
to enable me at this moment
to wiggle my toe.
