Bamboo-Water: Only Breath . . . the breath of life :) ~J

Only Breath

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, sufi, or zen.  Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all.  I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any
origin story.  My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless.  Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

                      e

There is a way between voice and presence
where information flows.
In disciplined silence it opens.
With wandering talk it closes.

          Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī   (جلالالدین محمد رومی)

“By Your Grace/Jai Gurudev”

Closer than breath, you are the air
Sweeter than life itself, you are here
I am a wanderer, you are my peace
I am a prisoner, you are release

Jai Gurudev . . .

I am a pilgrim, your road so long
I am the singer, you are the song
Held in the open sky, so far above
I am the lover, you are the love

Jai Gurudev . . .

I follow your footsteps through the flame
All that I ever need is in your name
Carry your heart in mine, vast as space
All that I am today is by your grace.

By your Grace . . .

I live by your grace.
By your Grace . . .

I live by your grace.
By your Grace.

  3. Nice words and song. The video has lots of great quotes from spiritual leaders like this one…”We’re all just walking each other home.” – Ram Dass
