Cosmic dance

An Invitation … I invite you right now to place your finger on the side of your neck and find the spot where you can feel your heartbeat. Rest your finger there for a few moments, feeling how steady and rhythmic the pulse is. Now sense that same pulse in the people living in the buildings surrounding you and driving the cars that are going by. Now become aware that this rhythm is in the birds and animals that live in your neighborhood and in the flow of sap through the trees. Expand your awareness and find it in the dance of night and day and the cadence of the tides. Experience Life as rhythm, expanding and contracting, opening and closing. Now come back to the pulse in your neck and realize that you are a part of this great rhythm and that every cell in your being vibrates in tune with this cosmic dance.
