Poetry: The Swing
Georgia Jane Kaftan (InterPlay Wisconsin) sent the following:

The Swing by Kabir

“Between the conscious and the unconscious, the mind has put up a swing:
all earth creatures, even the supernovas, sway between these two trees,
and it never winds down
Angels, animals, humans, insects by the million, also the wheeling sun and moon;
ages go by, and it goes on.
Everything is swinging: earth, water, fire,and the secret one slowly growing a body.
Kabir saw that for fifteen seconds, and it made him a servant for life.”

I like to think of this as swing theory. We are growing the body of “the secret one” one play at a time. -georgia jane

Body Wisdom Practice: Move Your Belly Button
Put your finger in your belly button. Really! Make your belly button move back and forth. Do this while sitting or standing. Can you move your finger/belly in a circle?
Welcome to the center of some of our planet’s most sacred dances- hula, belly dance, and gospel singing movement for instance. Why? Cuz it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!” Gotta have some give and take. Gotta get some grace.
Swing Low and High today. Swing on by. Getting places requires collaborations of this and that.
Anytime you need relief from focus focus focus…get up and twist or swing. Take a deep breath. Let it out with a sigh. Let life swing you!

Swing Low Blessing
As you raise your hand and connect with others around the world, swing. Let the swings and wings of life lift up and rock this beautiful world. Watch and Listen to Ladysmith Black Mambazo sing Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (you will have to open to youtube to listen to this one):

Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.
