Cozy Peaceful Meditation with poem, The Sun, by Mary Oliver
Slip into Fall with this Cozy Peaceful Meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes this guided meditation with the poem "The Sun," by Mary Oliver.
The Sun, by Mary Oliver.
Have you ever seen anything in your life
more wonderful than the way the sun, every evening,
relaxed and easy, floats toward the horizon and into the clouds
or the hills, or the rumpled sea,
and is gone--and how it slides again out of the blackness,
every morning, on the other side of the world,
like a red flower streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance--and have you ever felt
for anything such wild love--do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough for the pleasure that fills you,
as the sun reached out, as it warms you as you stand there
empty-handed--or have you too turned
from this world-- or have you too gone crazy for power, for things?
