Squirrels hopping from branch to branch chasing each other.
The Kwak Kwak Kwak sound of the crows in the distance.
Birds at the birdfeeder and the gentle swing of the bare branches in the winterours space.
What a wonder!
Not apart from breath
From the taste of tea
Fingers on the keyboard
The soft daylight shining through the window.
One seamless spacious presence.
Woodpecker just landed on the branch facing the window. Redhead and long beak.
Is there anything that stands apart from anything else?
Is there anything that stands apart from yourself?
Upon taking a close look…
Breath permeating everything
Permeating the play of the birds on the branches of the neighboring tree
Permeating the gray sky
Permeating every nuance, every aspect of our experience.
This seamless presence, awareness, beingness
Nameless and wordless.
The vast stillness of being.
Universal I am.
