Sat~Nam

softly lit
     barely audible

my arms outstretched
     two fingers point away
     thumbs circling back in

a room full of strangers
     and you

Chanting
     Sa
          Ta
               Na
                     Ma

I can feel the vibration
     of your voice

and then I am lost…

eyes closed
     yet gazing
          upwards

floating past the
feeling I am meant
     to release

Seven Minutes
     my arms reach out
I give and take
     in equal measure

I am the universe
     breathing.
pain searing
     my arms

mara is taunting me.

he is dancing in
     front of me
whispering…
          put down your arms

I resist
     breathing in
          through my
               teeth
releasing through my nose

Chanting
     I am.
          Sam~Nat.

Seven
        Six
            Five
                  Four
                       Three
                               Two
                                    One

Our arms collectively fall
     my body
begins to shake

I can feel
     the sobs
         coursing through me

tears silently sliding
     down my cheeks

I hear my teacher
     sigh

and we sit
     I am not the
          only one
               uplifted

the group has been elevated

we float on our vibrational cloud

joining
     compounding

open your eyes

You have opened my eyes.

You see my tears
     and smile

Knowing that I am
     moved.

Knowing that you moved
      me.

Your being moved with all.

You smile.
                   Namaste'

Osho

"With self-remembering you cannot eat meat, impossible. It is impossible to be so violent if you
remember. It is impossible to harm somebody when you remember, because when you remember
yourself, suddenly you see that the same light, the same flame is burning everywhere, within each
body, each unit. The more you know your inner nature, the more you penetrate the other. How can
you kill for eating? It becomes simply impossible."

"As water takes the shape of its container, the mind when it contemplates an object is transformed into the shape of that object." ~Iyengar~
