||We Are Weavers
by Jon Madian
[Listen to Audio!]
we are weavers
woven into and from
an ancient ever renewing fabric
on an invisible loom
more subtle than breath
at one turn
to add to our own design
to sing each life’s most important song
i am, i belong
in another turn
to etch the themes
built into pyramid, cathedral
and telescope, all designed to search
the mystery of hope & will
each of us, if our life is blessed,
leaves sufficient yarn
for the next generation
to pick up the many living threads
whose origins are beyond
the pure geometry of stars
and with bone and marrow shuttle
we leave the foundation
for those who will weave the fabric of tomorrow

Many years ago, a couple friends got together to sit in silence for an hour, and share personal aha-moments. That birthed this newsletter, and rippled out as Awakin Circles in 80+ living rooms around the globe. To join in Santa Clara this week, RSVP online.

Back in 1997, one person started sending this simple “meditation reminder” to a few friends. Soon after, “Wednesdays” started, ServiceSpace blossomed, and the humble experiments of service took a life of its own. If you’d like to start an Awakin gathering in your area, we’d be happy to help you get started.
