I am walking along the beach
How impressive are the clouds
The sun radiating its warm rays on my back
Waves are coming and going
My eyes are searching the horizon
The sea murmuring in my ears
My bare feet touching the sand
How beautiful this is!

At the same time
I am lost in my thinking
Constantly commenting on what I experience
The sun is warmer compared to yesterday
O, I shouldn't stay too long this time
What is my next appointment
I still have to fuel my car
Will there be a traffic jam?

I am walking along the beach
How impressive are the clouds
The sun radiating its warm rays on my back
Waves are coming and going
My eyes are searching the horizon
The sea murmuring in my ears
My bare feet touching the sand
How beautiful this is!

At the same time
I watch and feel my feet
My skin in contact with the clothes
Being aware of my movements
The sounds of the sea penetrating my ears
Realizing what I am seeing
Suddenly I feel connected
What a clarity all around!

At the same time
My awareness is reaching deeper levels
Touching my innermost core
The more exuberant I walk
The more calm I become within
Suddenly the click
I have become the center
Of the cyclone!

At the same time
Relaxing more and more
Awareness is expanding
Increasingly taking possession of me
Until it subtly transcends my body/mind
Everything is slowing down
While my body has dropped off
Great tranquillity all around!

At the same time
Realizing this is Mother's Body
Her gift of life to all beings
Tears come in my eyes
I feel the urge of falling on my knees
Whispering a prayer of gratefulness
To the All-Embracing One
Our Mother!
