DOING TONGLEN

DOING TONGLEN

I inhale,

I take in

the torment, the agony,

the illusions, the fear.

I gulp into my Soul

every snake and dragon

and mosquito

of the moment

and do Tonglen.

With open heartedness

and Spiritual Awareness

I invite

these strangers

into my Living Room.

I sit close

to the hearth fires

of purification

and

exhale Presence

while

Invisible Angels

turn all

the lights on

again.
