A Deep Breath

A deep breath, my mind clear, slowly I sink into meditation. Aware of everything but nothing seems to scream for my attention. Everything is like a play of light, whatever I grasp slips through my fingers, nothing is solid. I am Frans and at the same time I am not. Looking at my body, it is there, yet it feels like it is not there at all, not even a trace of it. Past, present, and future all intertwined like a rain drop merging within a pond. Ripples of eternity clearly visible, but no words to describe it. I rise, my hand reaches for the door, I step through it, into the light. Yet I am still sitting, nothing has changed but everything is changing.

Dr. Olga Rodriguez Rasmussen, a Shinpiden graduate of the Inetrnational House of Reiki, has created a meditation using Frans' poem.

    Beautiful, Frans and Olga! Frans, the image of your reaching for and stepping though the door without moving is so amazing, and I love “nothing has changed, but everything is changing.” And Olga, a beautiful realization. Thank you both so much!!!
