Nothing feels better than spaciousness in the body and mind....
Held in corners of my body-memory.
My brain-memory may not know
They are there
- Janet Hockfeld
* I really like the idea of bringing this poem into a class with a main focus of opening the heart or creating spaciousness in the body.
as water is
flow around the edges
of those within your path.
Surround within your ever-moving depths
those who come to rest there –
while never for a moment holding on.
Accept whatever distance
others are moved within your flow
Be with them gently
as far as they allow your strength to take them
and fill with your own being
the remaining space that is left behind.
When dropping down life’s rapids
froth and bubble into fragments if you must
knowing that the one of you - now many
will just as many times be one again
and when you’ve gone so far as you can go
quietly await your next beginning.
- Noel McInnis
