For the Senses

Standard

May the touch of your skin

Register the beauty

Of the otherness

That surrounds you.

Divinity Rising by Autumn Skye Morrison

 

May your listening be attuned

To the deeper silence

Where sound is honed

To bring distance home.

 

May the fragrance

Of a breathing meadow

Refresh your heart

And remind you you are

A child of the earth.

 

And when you partake

Of food and drink,

May your taste quicken

To the gift and sweetness

That flows from the earth.

 

May your inner eye see

Through the surfaces

And glean the real presence

Of everything that meets you.

 

May your soul beautify

The desire of your eyes

That you might glimpse

The infinity that hides

In the simple sights

That seem worn

To your usual eyes.

About Lu Jong New York - Joelle Kelly

Woman, Mother, Healer, Warrior ... I'm just another student in this classroom called Life. Buddhist, Rebel, Whimsical and Irreverent are some of my traits - but my observations will speak for themselves. I teach Lu Jong Tibetan Yoga (levels 1 & 2) and Tog Chod Wisdom Sword Dance in the lineage of my mentor Tulku Lama Lobsang offering instruction in addition to Teacher Educations. "To believe you are magnificent. And gradually to discover that you are not magnificent. Enough labor for one human life.” ~ Czesław Miłosz
