The Way Of Experience Begins With A Breath
THE RADIANCE SUTRAS- YUKTI VERSES
Yukti, or yoga meditation practices, for opening to the divine mystery within everyday experience. The wide variety of techniques allows each individual to find their doorway into wonder, astonishment, and delight.
The One Who Is Intimate to All Beings replies,
Beloved, your questions require the answers that come
Through direct living experience.
The way of experience begins with a breath,
Such as the breath you are breathing now.
Awakening into luminous reality
May dawn in the momentary throb
Between any two breaths.
Exhaling, breath is released and flows out.
There is a pulse as it turns to flow in.
In that turn, you are empty.
Enter that emptiness as the source of all life.
Inhaling, breath flows in, filling, nourishing.
Just as it turns to flow out,
There is a flash of pure joy-
Life is renewed.
