deep rest in my body

Sleeping in the Forest

by Mary Oliver


I thought the earth

remembered me, she

took me back so tenderly, arranging

her dark skirts, her pockets

full of lichens and seeds. I slept

as never before, a stone

on the riverbed, nothing

between me and white fire of the stars

but my thoughts, and they floated

light as moths among the branches

of the perfect trees. All night

I heard the small kingdoms breathing

around me, the insects, and the birds

who do their work in the darkness. All night

I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling

with a luminous doom. By morning

I had vanished at least a dozen times

into something better.

Meditation

Allow yourself to fall into a place of deep rest -- sink deeper and deeper into the body. Allow your attention to move slowly through all the parts of the body, internal and external, and openly listen. what is your body telling you? Let it speak its wisdom. Allow yourself to follow its words and advice. Love yourself in all honesty.
