1-6a A Flame in a Fiery Coal

Close your eyes and breathe out.

See that a burning coal is before you. A flame rises out of the coal.
See its brightness and feel its heat.

Perceive that the flame and the coal are inseparable.

See within this fiery coal the mystery of oneness.

If you feel able, reach out to take the coal. Feel its heat, without being burned. Bring it to your mouth.

Hear the truth
that comes out of your mouth when the coal touches it.

Breathe out and open your eyes.
