Singing in Empty space

It is said
‘hold the space’.
Space without
edges?
Surely!
Yes & No.

Empty and full
empty/full
simultaneously.
Relationship
needs?
Yes & No.

Distinctions dissolve
and yet.
AND YET
The greatest
gift we offer?
Yes & No.

Unknowingly our conscious attention to nothing specific in the widest possible sphere, the sphere without boundaries, is the greatest gift. Born of patience, compassion, non-judgmentalism, holding back on opinions, allowing and above all, listening. With all the fibres of our being. Sounds good don’t it?

    1. Good to hear from you, Julie. Good to know you are still reading here and that the post touched you. The bird, or possibly birds, certainly caught my attention. As did the blue sky…. Now horizontal snow.

  1. Beautiful, so true and a fruit of practice. Sometimes more transient than other times. And that’s ok.

    Thank you Rev. Mugo.

    1. Thanks, Brian so true. I just said to a fellow monk that if we were all caught up in ‘infinite space’ we would ruin more saucepans than we do already! Mostly one is caught up with the minutiae.
