Sacred December by Dean Solon

there is no need, no point, to be making someThing happen.
beacause it---all of it, all of THIS---is always happening,
is always present.  there is simply
                                                       and truly
only opening and always opening
to IT
with IT
and as IT.
breathing in and breathing are with IT.
showering in the are with IT.
preparing a meal, staring at the computer in the workplace,
listening to music, driving a car in the philly are with IT.
so it is in sacred december...
so it is in any month, so it is in any moment,
so it is here and now...
you are with IT.
you are IT.
what we seek, we are.

what you seek
you are

Closing Eyes by Dean Solon

close your eyes, listen.  feel your heart beating,
your breath rising and falling.  do nothing.

closing eyes gently...
closing eyes gently...
opening heart and mind, spirit and soul, gently.

a sacredness of present moment.
a sacredness of present moment
who and what you are...magical and miraculous.

when all noise diminishes, when all chatter dissipates and all chatter subsides,
what remains, what and who resides and abides?
SomeOne surprising and mysterious,
SomeThing unexpected and unforeseen,
SomeThing beyond belief and beyond description
   and all of this.

simple, beautiful, silent.

the lightness of being.  the openness of being.  the vulnerability of being. 
a day begins, with threads  [connecting], with waiting willing surprises.  and am i open to them?  am i attending, not-attaching, to them?

eyes closed.  heart beating,
breath rising and falling.  doing nothing.
