Today’s mini meditation is a celebration of the joy that comes from connecting with nature. Ancient meditation practitioners left us texts describing the mini universe they found inside as their meditation practices deepened. We too can access the peace and expansiveness that comes from connecting to elements within.

This body is made of earth and gold,

Sky and stars, rivers and oceans,

Masquerading as muscle and bone. 

Every substance is here:

Diamonds and silver, magical elixirs,

Ambrosia that gives visions,

Herbs that nourish and heal.

The foundation of the planet, 

Immortal magnetic iron, 

Circulating in the blood.

Every element in you loves the others:

Earth loves rain, sky loves sun, 

Sun loves the space it shines through,

Space loves everyone equally.

In meditation, luxuriate in knowing this deep 

and simple truth.

Every cell is an organ of sense

Infused with majesty.
