Early Morning!

I wake before four, in time to see friend skunk scurry hunkily by the bedroom door to the water bowl in the front.  He drinks and scuttles back.  He's learned to avoid turning on the motion detector.  The cats wake happy to share.  The day begins.  I am awake early.  I will lead my sensing group this morning at eight, and I've been reviewing notes, but more importantly, allowing the work to flow through me, to unfold and awaken.  It is always new.  I am always new.  I am always one with you.  These words guide my day.





TODAY
I
Do not
Want to step so quickly
Over a beautiful line on God's palm
As I move through the earth's
Marketplace
Today.
I do not want to touch any object in this world
Without my eyes testifying to the truth
That everything is
My Beloved.
Something has happened
To my understanding of existence
That now makes my heart always full of wonder
And kindness.
I do not
Want to step so quickly
Over this sacred place on God's body
That is right beneath your
Own foot
As I
Dance with
Precious life
Today.
