One That Is All

A blade of grass in a golden field
A petal on a white rose in a bush
A bird in a flock flying high
A wave crashing on the shore

I am all of these
Under the belief I am separate
Not knowing I am the same
A living part of the whole

I am the ocean
and the other waves are me
I am all the petals on the rose, the whole field of grass, every bird, the sun and the moon

I am the night sky
The stars, the moon, the sun
the nothingness

You will find me in the wind, the breath you take and the exhale

I am the love in your eyes,
the tears that run down your cheek, the sound of thunder, the laughter of children, the soil of the earth

I am the end and the beginning

It is in me that I find all that I seek,
because in me lies the everything that is, and it expresses itself out there,
what is seen and unseen,
what is heard and unheard,
what is felt and what is not

It is all within me that is one
And I am the one that is all

Leaf in the wind

I used to feel like a leaf that had come off the branch of a tree, blowing in the wind.

The wind was the world going on around me and my actions, attitudes and happiness were always dependent on the weather and the direction of the breeze.

Now I’m the roots of the tree planted firmly in the ground, the trunk, the branches and the leaves.

I’m the whole tree, glistening in the sun, standing strong through rain, wind and storm.

I am connected to everything.
