Silent Prayer

Left Palm <————> Right Palm
gazing at these wondrous hands

easeful presence and skilful engagement
mind and matter
form and function
knower and known
work and play
inner and outer
micro and macro
self and other
one and many
profound and mundane
worldly and spiritual
stillness and movement
animate and inanimate
brain and body
individual and community
creature and environment . . .

These ephemeral ‘graspings’ at reality.

in silence,
sensitively, lovingly, gently, and respectfully,
bringing them together,
at the heart.

Releasing into the mystery of union and multiplicity
this unbreakable wholeness of life unfolding in process.

With flowing breath
and the profound blessing of healing presence,
we realize our true home.
