embodied practice: “taking refuge in the island of self”

breathing in, i go back
to the island of myself.

there are beautiful trees
there is water, there are birds,
there is sunshine and fresh air.

breathing out, i feel safe.

Nothing To Do, Nowhere To Go: Waking Up To Who You Are

zen in motion:
as a mountain,
exalted,
resilient,
uplifted,
half moon, waxing: open heart,
balancing: steady of body + heart + mind,
taking refuge in the wisdom of breath,
refuge in the self
