Dear Dream Tending and Imagination Community,
This day, this night, let’s join, together. Let’s send our love and compassion to people, creatures, and landscapes who are in need of us as we are in need of them.
I invite you to join many in our extended community to make this offering into the world of today.
Take a moment to breathe, find ground, and open your heart. Pause. With soft eyes, with wide peripheral vision, notice a beautiful setting, an object, or a presence. Allow some time, let it find you. Now, with more focused eyes, spend some time here. Get curious, let the beauty come forward from the inside out and greet you here. In this quality of experience, read this poem and notice what opens inside. In your own way, join our community and make an offering into the world.
Until next Tuesday . . .
In the dreamtime,

Inside The Curious Mind

Knowing nothing shuts the iron gates; the new love opens them.
The sound of the gates opening wakes the beautiful woman asleep.
Kabir says: Fantastic! Don’t let a chance like this go by!
From the Ecstatic Poems of Kabir
