Like a vast and gracious Host, welcome
and say "yes" to this
"yes" to this and "yes"
to every this.
Your true life arrives constantly
when you've set up your little shop
at the intersection of Now and Yes.
Relax, be simply present for every breath, every passing
car, every trilling bird ...
When you look at the world, free your gaze
from the mind's tiny whirling
& let each thing's uniqueness emanate forward
freed from all grasping, ambition, or will
Recognize all things as Emmisaries
and Manifestations of a greater and mysterious Will.
The very Presence of all that surrounds you
is the Transcendental It.
Home is already here when you are.
There is nowhere else to go. When you
leave here in order to get somewhere else,
you are truly nowhere. Then the world
cannot find you, or lend its unending support.
Recognize all that is as a form of support
(though what is being supported may not be your ego)
When you welcome each present moment
unendingly, you yourself become part
of It, the Divine Presence. This Presence is
subtle and buoyant, and supports your awareness
effortlessly, the way water holds up a boat.
Let your awareness be vast and inclusive
as if the whole world is taking place
inside your mind. Hear everything,
see everything, feel everything
with this simple greeting on your lips:
