Take a moment now, and return to the breath, the space of being one
with everything in your midst: the chaos as well as the order,
the peace as well as well as the war,
the pain as well as the liberation,
the reality as well as the dreams.
Take a moment and see the light of your breath
expand and contract,
stop and go,
deny and affirm.
I am in the kingdom, and yet it is all of me.
I am the divine, and yet I am human.
I am nothing and no where, and yet,
I am everything and everywhere.
