The presence of intention being in each moment

Focusing love in the now of atonement

The scarcity quiet listening to breathing

The rhythmic sensuality air through nostrils streaming


Why go exploring to distant shores unknowing

As we participate in our own disowning

We go around the circle back to the beginning

Finally discovering the source of our winning


We really want joy in our expression

Getting over the edge living with self-possession

Why give it up quickly surrendering our essence

When the gifts we bear are wrapped in our presence


Don’t pretend to know you have a better answer

Focus your attention you can find your dancer

It’s not in some possession or activity

It’s not inside an object it rests in your proclivity


When your dance is finished I hope your translucency

Will find itself inside the castle of your fluency

Temper your inner world give yourself foundation

The joy inside of you is your true elation


How do you seek to recognize and discover your personal presence?

How do you cultivate that presence?

How would you describe the essential you?

Would those closest to you agree?

How might you deliver more of you to the world?
