THIS I BELIEVE
I believe in the energy of this moment. It’s there behind my eyes when I close them. It carries my awareness through my throat and into my chest, where I feel it pulsating with the power of life, coursing through my whole body. I believe that I am the energy inside me at this moment, and that I am my awareness of it, that I am my body.
I believe in the energy of this moment. It awakens my senses to all that is other. I see it in the shifting shadows as the sunlight dances with the leaves that drink it in. I see it in your eyes, now sparkling with light, now in shadow. I hear the energy as the leaves and the breeze softly caress each other, and as the birds celebrate it. I hear it in the firm resonance of your voice when you speak your truth, as it is, for this moment. I smell it, touch it , taste it. I let it all in, the energy that is the information I need to get what’s happening with you, so I can connect.
I believe in the energy of this moment, I let it in, and so I am not alone.
I believe in the energy of this moment. I notice it lifting me from the inside. I feel the river of pleasure carrying me along. Enchanted, I let myself go with it, letting it in as it streams from your heart into mine. I open wide and let it flow right through me – to you, and to others ready to receive. I believe pleasure is lifegiving, and that when I share it, it grows.
I believe in the energy of this moment. I let it flow through, and so I am not alone.
I believe in the energy of this moment. I notice how it is weighing me down. I feel the burden of what I am carrying, and the call to let it go. I feel the heaviness, whether the burden is yours or mine. I believe it tells me what needs to end, and so, while finding the soothing I need, I listen closely to its lesson. I am willing to learn.
I believe in the energy of this moment. I notice its patterns. I give them meaning. I think about what is happening. I understand it in terms of what has happened. I let the energy of this moment challenge my thoughts, allowing for something new, something unexpected, something I have not already fixated in the past. I recognize my thoughts are simply a part of the energy of this moment, and so I watch them come and go. I am willing to change what I think.
I believe in the energy of this moment, even when it seems too much for me, especially then! I tune into fear when an echo from the past lays claim to the future. I face the fear, name it, test it. When there is reason to fear I do what I can to make things safe. I resolve fear. Then I breathe deeply and let it go.
I believe in the energy of this moment. I respond to its call to change, and so I am not alone.
I believe in the energy of this moment and so I am not alone. I notice that every now there is only one energy. This energy is vibrant, flowing through the trees, the birds, your eyes, mine. It has many names, Prana, Chi, Life Force, Spirit. I believe this one energy is aware, that it draws all awareness into noticing that we are all connected. I believe this energy is Love, embracing all that is. I worship it as our experience of the divine.
I believe in the divine energy of this moment, and so, I am never alone.
