I need meditation because…

I need to breathe with my Self.

I need to connect with my Self.

I need to BE with my Self.

She is my beloved ‘Oak’.

My Self with deep roots and a mighty reach.

My Self who is already there, who has gone before.

My Self who knows beyond knowing.

Connected. Strong. Compassionate. Wise.

She is my Rock and my Salvation.

Sacred. Whole. And steady.

She is my Me… the I in my I Am.

For this I sit.

Quietly. Expectantly. In gratitude.
