“We all have moments in which we are jolted out of our habitual anxiety,
when we surrender control and let go of self-conscious judgments In those
moments we can just “be.” We can feel refreshingly open, clear, and complete.
Our mental clutter and confusions fall away, and we remember with great joy our
oneness with all that is. At such moments the whole universe dances inside us!”

“I thought the earth remembered me,
she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed,
nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees.
All night I heard the small kingdoms
breathing around me, the insects,
and the birds who do their work in the darkness.
All night I rose and fell, as if in water,
grappling with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.”
– Mary Oliver, Sleeping In The Forest
