How to Be Light

With your face forward

Chin level, chin steady

You close your eyes

Gently, like butterfly wings, gently

 

With your palms down

Hands at rest, hands at ease

You are still and soft

Calmly, like the forest floor, calmly

 

In the dark

Your vision turns bright

Your senses sharpen

 

In this space

Your mind clears

Your fears weaken

 

Quietly, you feel it, quietly

A small dot, shining

At the center of your heart

This small dot, expanding

To places where din departs

 

Slowly, breath by breath, slowly

Your light is your being

Your light is you seeing

Your light, your present

This moment, your moment

You are light, glowing

Brightly, like a star, brightly
