Written Transcript of the Guided Meditation:

to this
playful moment
an empty space
that allows you
to perceive
a blank canvas
that says
"you can create whatever"
let's just recognize
this canvas
we can see
that behind
all of our perceptions,
all of our stories
about this, that, and the other
there is an empty space
that allows us to tell
an infinite number of stories
and we can recognize that
beyond our stories
as they come,
as they go
this canvas
remains blank
a space of emptiness
by the imagination
let's make contact
with that canvas
we're gonna take a moment
and allow our breath
to bring us deeper, deeper in
to that emptiness
let's take
three deep breaths
and allow ourselves
to relax
into the nothing
let's breathe
let us acknowledge
the playfulness
of this emptiness
allowing for anything
to be created
to be seen
we can interpret
what arises as an enemy
or a friend
and regardless of
how we interpret it
we can see that
what it really is
is not that
so whatever it is
we can release it
and simply return
to our creative ability
to perceive
and let us be open
to all the different ways
we can play
with our perception
all the different ways
we can see
this or that
let's take
three more deep breaths
with an abundance of gratitude
for this empty space
that allows us to play
let's breathe
thank you
for meditating with me today.
