On this Sunday without Sangha, a memory from last year (27 Nov 2015 — the day after Thanksgiving) popped up on my Facebook newsfeed.
A verse inspired by a beloved park trail where I’ve logged countless miles in a walking-running-praying meditation and, a hundred times over, awakened curiosity and understanding and mapped pathways toward reconciliation.
❤ today, another verse for remembering to remember…for tending to our wholeness and seeing a feast in all things:
i walk for clarity
to release those deep + wordless groanings
that tense my muscles, pluck-stretch my nerves, + accelerate my pulse.
movement is prayer — pleading, seeking, remembering, communing,
soothing heart + spirit
is it my favorite posture of meditation — fine-tuning my capacity to listen, discern, + take skillful, compassion-centered action
clearing up space for love-wisdom to prevail
