May all beings be peaceful.
May all beings be happy.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be free of suffering.
May all beings be liberated.
May all beings realize their essence and live this fully, completely and utterly!

Greet Yourself in your thousand other forms...

All the Hemispheres



Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out


Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadow and shores and hills.


Open up to the Roof.
Make a new watermark on your excitement
And love.


Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.


Change rooms in your mind for a day.


All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.


Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.


All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire
Chatting


While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of
You.
