“… celebrate the wonder of being here. Experience this moment as it is ...” ~ Danna Faulds
Throw off the bonds of your conditioning and fear
and celebrate the wonder of being here.
Experience this moment as it is,
connected by breath and essence to the whole.
You couldn’t be separate if you tried.
Live this day as if the earth exhales blessings in your direction,
as if trees speak their deepest secrets in your ear,
as if bird songs can lift you
outside your ordinary state of mind and bring you into truth.
Be the creative juice flowing through the universe.
Be silence and stillness,
the ocean of love so palpable that
not one cell of you disputes the truth that
you are that.
~ Danna Faulds

This poem is excerpted from Limitless by Danna Faulds.
Limitless is Danna’s “… fifth book of poetry. A long-term practitioner of Kripalu Yoga, for the past seven years her writing has inspired and delighted a broad audience interested in the opportunities life provides for healing, growth, and transformation. Danna writes:
Some days, the first line of a poem interrupts me and insists on being written down – NOW! Other days, I write the words ‘This is what I have to say to you’ at the top of the page and see what comes. Like a faucet dispensing water from a hidden reservoir below the earth, this kind of writing allows the formless mystery to flow into my conscious life. What I tap into when I write from the quiet of my meditation cushion feels limitless. Each morning finds me at the edge of my current experience, writing about where I am stuck, where I am learning to let go, and what is calling me forward right now. Words on the page, both poetry and prose, are the bread crumbs left behind as I move beyond my comfort zone and into the unknown.
Danna is the author of four previous books of poetry: Go In and In; One Soul; Prayers to the Infinite; and From Root to Bloom. She is currently finishing a memoir about her experiences with yoga and writing titled Into the Heart of Yoga.” ~ excerpt from Amazon’s page on Limitless
