Giving Thanks for This Moment

 

collage, thanksgiving

 

This is a ollaborative group collage that some friends and I did for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters….

 

“One moment is eternity;
eternity is the now.
When you see through this one instant,
you see through the one who sees.”

-Wu Men [1183-1260], quoted in “The Enlightened Heart”, edited by Stephen Mitchell

 

May the bird call
be my voice
the wind
be my breath
the rivers
be my blood
the soil
be my skin
the rocks
be my bones
the grasses
be my hair
the branches
be my fingers

May earth spinning
be my dance

Let no part of me
ever be separate again
Let no part of you
be unknown to me
Earth of my body
Body of the Earth

-Karen Zeiders

© Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, “Abide, Keeping Vigil with the Word of God”, Liturgical Press
