Playing in 10,000 Places

by bryan maynard

Consciousness plays in 10,000 places,

In stardust and mud, in all of the spaces.

Alive and aware, seeing herself in all faces,

Her gift to herself is awakening graces.


In the spirit of playful awareness of consciousness of being, I wrote this in response to a quote from John Muir, as posted by one of my followers of this blog (Hi, Tobi!).


Everyone needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.


That healing that gives strength to the body and the soul is the playful energy arising from the graces of consciousness herself. And nature is one of our best teachers of how to contact the energy of aliveness in all things. Wow, everything is alive as pure being itself. Touching this becomes grace upon grace.
