The Bellows of My Throat

Dec 4th, 2011 Posted in Quotes | Comments Off

Everything we do mixes
in the ground of the self.

Slowly, slowly, I tended
the bellows of my throat,
and the light inside grew

and filtered out through
the dark, so that within
even it, I saw the truth.

-from Naked Song by Lalla

Embracing the Unknown

Black Panther…
Embracing the Unknown

Oh Midnight Jaguar…
Wash me with your courage
And steel me with your grace,
So I may know the value of
The void of time and space.

Teach me all your lessons,
How to face the dark unknown.
Then let me bravely leap
Into the shadows all alone.

-from “Medicine Cards” by Jamie Sams and David Carson
