Drown me in you. Steal my breath, one droplet at a time. In a deluge of rain, take all the air from my lungs, depleted and empty. Surround me, your nearness pressing so close, washing in a waterfall over all my skin. Take me deeper, under the surface to where I can be with the dark depth of you. Then when I am submerged, floating free but lost in you; find me. Kiss me and give the breath of hope I found hidden, drowned, in your heart.
Forget about enlightenment. Sit down and listen to the wind singing in your veins. Feel the love, the longing, and the fear in your bones. Open your heart to who you are, right now. Not who you'd like to be, but the being right here before you, inside you, around you. All of you is holy. You’re already more than whatever you can know. Breathe out, look in, let go • John Welwoo
