An Invitation to Go Easy

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

Today will be an invitation

to go easy, which I'd like to

start with a poem by Mary Oliver

called when I Am Among the Trees.

When I am among the trees,

especially the willows and honey locust,

equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,

they give off such hints of

gladness, I

would almost say they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,

in which I have goodness, and discernment,

and never hurry through the world

but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves

and call out, "Stay awhile."

The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, "It's simple,"

they say, and

you too have come

into the world to do this, to go easy, to

be filled with light, and to shine.

We all might have different ideas

of what it means to go through the

world with a greater sense of ease

filled with light and shining.

But I think in general, when we hear

this poem, we can sense what the

invitation is pointing to, a reconnection

to a certain way of being that we

know on some level, even if we're

disconnected from it, most of the time.

Nature is a great way to reconnect

with this quality of going easy.

Whether it's tuning into the wind

blowing through the leaves, a beetle

climbing a tree or a sprouting flower.

There's a sense of everything

simply unfolding, doing its

part in this larger web of life.

So I invite you to spend some time

in nature today, even if it's just

looking at a plant in your home.

Be still.

Feel your own presence, with everything

going on around you and everything

within you, and ask yourself what would

need to change for me to go more easy.

It's a question that will garner

different answers for different people

and at different points in life.

So see what shows up for you.

Thank you for your practice and I'll

talk to you soon in the meditation.

Take care.
