Gifts of the Morning
It’s in the silent surrender
Of the early morning,
Waking to a hushed world
Present for the first few slivers of light
That illuminate after the long cool night,
Where I find my soul
Sitting in gentle meditation
Awaiting my return.
In the deepest silence just before the dawn
I can hear my truth
Whispering clearly all I need to know.
The whispers sound less like words
More like music,
Truth and love need no words to be understood.
I too join in meditation
To be in communion with my soul
With all I am connected to
That abounds in the universe,
To feel, to be the
Back to the basics, the simple
Essence of being.
Before the harried rush of the day,
Before emotions over take, and pull me
Up and down a roller coaster ride.
To hold the space for peace to enter,
For love to enter.
To hold the space for all magical possibilities
And witness my own transformation.
Just to be with all that is,
Allow for a joy greater than thought possible
To enter and take residence.
Allow myself to welcome with open arms all the universe has to give.
Find contentment and peace.
This is what the morning brings,
The moments surrounding dawn on either side
Offer such deep mystical gifts
To all who dare to open their arms, release their fingers down
To show an open palm.
All who are ready to receive shall have the gifts of the morning.
Patience, forgiveness and understanding
Are all I need to drop into the
Brilliance of each new morning.
I am an early morning person! I love to get up before the sun and watch while it slowly creeps up into the sky. It is a special and magical time of day which I love to be a part of. My favorite way to enjoy the morning is through meditation, whether sitting meditation or walking meditation.
How do you enjoy the morning?
