Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

The body

I invite you to take one breath for the earth beneath our feet, one for the sky above us, and one for the sea that surrounds us. Be aware of your body, and release any tension in your feet ... legs ... belly ... chest ... arms ... neck ... and head. Now look within yourself  what images arise? ... [pause] ...The body contains darkness  the velvet darkness of the flesh, the nourishing darkness of the earth. The body contains water  water that answers to the call of the Moon, water that nourishes life. The body contains earth  the chalk-white bones that hold us up. The body contains air  the air that we breathe. The body contains fire  the spark of life, the warmth of the flesh, the pulse of the blood. And the body contains light  the spark of the Divine in every heart, the light of reason in every mind. The body holds our memories  memories of happiness and sadness, memories that make us who we are. The body gives rise to our dreams  dreams of freedom and peace, dreams of love and passion. The body holds our spirit, our consciousness, our inner life. The body fixes us in time and place, allowing us to experience the present moment in all its fullness. Let us be present now  present to our bodies, present to each other, present to this precious moment. [long pause] Let us be present now. [music]
