2-5a Working in Fire

Close your eyes and breathe out slowly.

A fire is before you.
A fire-keeper is tending it.
This fire is your life-force.
See how carefully the fire-keeper tends it, and breathes on it to keep the flame alive.

As the fire burns,
a pillar of smoke arises from within it. Within this pillar
is a new creation.
What new thing
arises from the fire
that is your life?

Breathe out and open your eyes.
