Essene Meditations and Blessings #134

Meditation

I feel my body become the earth,

The richness of the rock.

From my scant depth of dark topsoil

Spring the fruits for all.

But rock am I

As well as soil,

And at my center flows

The fire of molten mystery

That was kindled long ago.

What consciousness

Began that fire

Bringing me to now?

The Blessing

The table in my house is full

And I have much to share.

As I gather in the fruits of my labors,

As I work

With the talents that I have,

I see

That it is in the gathering

That fulfillment lies .

It is in the labor of right livelihood

That I find greater joy

Than in the security

Of an overflowing cupboard.
