Tap roots run deep.
Ease and grace flow,
Into the sanctuary of Self
Deep, dark red, deep.
All senses return to the Source.
Not a sound or noise in the universe.
The red velvet of this private
Interior provides warmth,
And humble retreat.
There’s no asking. No needs.
No one to see.
Note: This afternoon, the experience of presence reminded me of Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971)
To my delight, I discovered that today is his birthday.
“The world is its own magic.”
“Each one of us must make his own true way, and when we do, that way will express the universal way.”
“We do not exist for the sake of something else. We exist for the sake of ourselves.”
