Asheville Spirituality, Satsang, Meditation

you take my breath away
and you fill my lungs,
again and again,
all without an iota of effort needed from me.
All that seems needed from me is to remember:
When I invite in and worship fear, separation and exclusion,
I am diminished.
When I invite in and worship love, connection and inclusion,
I am one with you,
and your servant.
assist me to see beyond the fears and insecurities
I am clutching to,
these infections I’ve harbored in my mind.
Open me to the vibrations and healing balm of your Love,
so I may be cleansed
of my judgments
that there ever was
or will ever be
anything to fear,
when your breath,
and your life
are constantly coursing through me.

As I gain exposure to Sufism, I am appreciating the common thread bridging Sufism and Christianity – giving/devoting yourself (and your identity) to God and embracing whatever comes your way.
