The Fire Is Yours

Close your eyes.

Really settle into this space.

Breathe it in for a few moments, long and deep.

You’re feeling really good now, in a peaceful little spot in the woods, in front of a warm campfire.

It’s dark out, but the stars are bright in the deep blue of the night sky.

The woodsy air is so clean and cool. It smells good.

There is a pile of wood beside you.

You know it will be easy to reach when it’s time to throw a log on the fire.

You stare into the flames.

Your mind clears. Your body relaxes. Your breath comes easy.

Settled into this warm, comfortable space, your mind wanders.

You find questions coming to you that you don’t normally ask yourself, as they’re questions you think you already have the answers to.

Tonight, though, it doesn’t seem so certain, and it doesn’t seem to matter. As the questions come, there is no need to recite an old answer or to search for a new one.

All that matters tonight is the asking of the question. If an answer comes, good. But your only tasks are listening and keeping the fire alive.

Who am I?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

Why am I here?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

What do I want?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

Where am I going?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

How am I getting there?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

When do I begin?

…as you throw a log on the fire.

You watch it burn.

The flames are high.

The light is bright.

Open your eyes.

The fire is yours.

Keep it alive.
