Imagine Yourself

Imagine Yourself

By Amba Gale

Imagine yourself a leaf,
    being carried by the river.
        There, you will know Peace.

Imagine yourself a feather
    being danced by the wind that carries.
        There you will know Joy.

Imagine yourself a lake,
    rained on by the clouds
        There, you will know Fullness.

Imagine yourself a stream,
    being a bed for the salmon.
        There you will know Birth and Death.

Imagine yourself an ear,
    listening to another’s heart.
        There, you will meet Compassion.

Imagine yourself a heron,
    fishing the abundant water.
        There, you will be Patience.

Imagine yourself as a poet,
    facing the blank, white page.
        There, you will find Simplicity.

Your sudden appearance and my willingness to be surprised meet and hold hands.…

Let them converge as one in the center of your Being. Breathe. Create space in time. All will come to pass in its own time. Don’t try to rush things. Breathe. Create room in time. Those creative possibilities are beautiful, all in their own time. Give yourself the gift of room in time. Let this knowing in your body and your heart lead the…
