A Reflection and a Meditation — on Learning Together

Taking Time for Falling into Love
(alternatively “Learning to Wait”)

 

Together

Effortlessly

Waiting,

Patiently, sometimes interminably

For harmony to find itself

Learning to wait.

Silence when that is all there is

Unbroken

Listening

Curbing my enthusiasm

Relaxing

Finding our enthusiasm

Tempo, tone, timber, mood, color, flavor, texture, feeling

Falling into

Feeling into

Opening

Opening to Ensemble

Playing together.

Time and tenderness

Coming back to the moment, again and again

Letting emotion come and go, wash over me, wash over us, wash away

Learning to wait

Calmly or not

Again and again

Interminably

Whatever it takes, so we are together,

Sometimes moving in harmony

Noticing breath

Noticing balance

Reaching out, into and through

Touching each other.

Being touched, sometimes deeply.

It’s was breathtaking

Loving

In these moments for no particular purpose other than the sensation of harmony

Finding our way tenderly, through touch,

touching one another, being touched

Connecting

Smiles.

Tears

Laughter

Surprise

Tearful gratitude at being heard

No goal allowed to bury loving connection this time!

No form of violence, no forcefulness of personality, displaces tenderness this time!

This was a time of tenderness.
