End a Kind Thought

I'm safe now after nighttime misty Brooklyn bike ride home.
I discovered a new way to be depleted today.
I could only learn from my fatigue and watch it from afar
like my face reflected in the subway window, I was alarmed.
Now I'm an upright shipwreck face down, humming.
It's gorgeous in here! I have plants!
It's so alive in here! So much life in here!
With this big ass stomach pang I don't know whether to fly or freeze.
I give thanks for this getting to know what I need to know.
All the same, send a kind thought, a meditative trick - love doesn't
just go away, it learns and gets better -
send something, anything, if you have it.

Simple Light Meditations

"At the heart-level in the center of our chest, now appears a tiny rainbow light. Gradually it expands through our body, totally filling it and dissolving all diseases and obstacles on its way. When we can stay with this awareness, our body shines like a lamp and light streams in all directions, filling space. It dissolves the suffering of beings everywhere and the world now shines with great meaning and joy. All are in a pure land, full of limitless possibilities. Everything is self-liberating. We emanate this light as long as it feels natural."

do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?

I mean, Todd, you need to get paid for lines like these.
