Embudito Canyon

BY Karen Louise Roberts
I Am One with All That Is

I am grateful for the meditative words that came to me as I hiked in Embudito Canyon, a place in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains that rise up east of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I chanted these words with every step of my descent on the trail.

Embudito Canyon

I am one with all that is.
I am the glory and the beauty of God.

I am the crunch
of the gravel on the path. I am the color
of the lichen on the rock.
I am the texture
of the granite boulders and the brightness
of each cactus bloom.

I am the song
of the bird on the branch. I am the buzz
of the fly nearby.
I am the whisper of the breeze in my ear
and the shadow and the sun
and the sound of the sky.

I am one with all that is.
I am the glory and the beauty of God.

Feel Your Body
Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes.
