I wonder what it would feel like, to step into the 'beyond'... what would we see... what smells would we take in and make into a part of our being... what sounds would envelop and hold us there.
We reach out, cutting through the fog of our mind, hoping to ride the rhythm of our heart - calling to our secret strength. It is difficult to keep our breath calm, controlled. We must let our need speak for us - send it spiraling into the mist.
