Canoe Trip
You are sitting in a canoe on a lake.
Paddling swiftly through rippling waters
you slow to a stop
as you enter a quiet bay.
You lay your paddle across your knees
as you look out over the now serene lake
and you let your body feel the rise and fall
of the canoe as it moves with the water
up and down, softly floating,
softly rising and falling.
You listen to the ripple of water
lapping softly against the side of the canoe.
Over the waters, sunlight is trickling down
and dancing across the ripples and rays
and as you watch, you feel
yourself let go... You rest
as you repeat to yourself,
"I feel peace.  I feel peace.  I feel peace".

"Be the Change You Wish To See In The World...." Gandhi
