A beautiful piece of writing from one of my awesome teachers, Joseph (Ananta) Le Page, offered to us this morning. I plan on using it as a daily meditation:
I’ve walked these many rugged paths with others bathed in summer sun, but now these different roads converge in a journey toward the One.
I waged a war within myself of right and wrong, of lost and won, but now all doubts have come to rest in the unity of one.
I searched for a way to heal my life with every remedy that’s known, but now I sense the essence of health in the healing of the One.
And I’ve battled demons in my mind to find a place of peace and calm, but now my breath can simply rest in the sanity of One.
For I’ve journeyed all across this earth and learned in many tongues, but now I know their single source in the silence of the One.
Yes, my heart’s lived closed in clouds of pain, allowing only scattered sun, but now I walk with an open heart in the sunlight of the One.
And all my fears of having less and being not enough have softened in the circle of the wholeness of the One.
And all that’s past, and all that is, and all that’s still to come, has brought me to this place of grace in the wisdom of the One.
Big Love going on at Kripalu!
