|Imagine you are the cool and glinting surface
of a placid lake
reflecting lazy, limber trees,
The wind exhales fragrantly,
undulating the sun's reflection
on your warming face.
Quilts of mist from your fluid robes
rise upward, seeking the clouds.
A droplet from your mist-self condenses
and rolls down the leaf of a
gnarled and rugged oak.
Rippling outward, outward, outward.
Joining with, merging with, liquid, one.
You are droplet and surface, water and ripple.
Imagine you are the surface.
Reflecting without resisting.
Mirroring without judging.
Observing without acting.
Imagine you are the ripple.
Energy pulsing gently but persistently outward;
shaping, changing, creating.
Imagine you are the water.
A great, still, wise power.
Imagine you are the droplet.
Small but powerful,
a tiny microcosm,
with the power to ripple the universe.
We will journey together, my beloved,
to your beginnings on this earth--
to your beginnings in this lifetime.
Back to the physical and spiritual beginnings
of your current journey on this planet.
Sit back, lie back, and relax.
