Would You Heal The World?

excerpt from performance
Belly Laugh, Belly Growl:

XIII. Would You Heal The World?

There’s a wise, wise woman who says:
there’s enough love in your heart,
and your heart, and your heart
to heal the world, beginning with
the universe who is you.
Would you heal the earth?

You bear the world within your belly!

Take a moment now to cradle your belly,
placing your hands
over your lower abdomen.
Allow your hands to register
how your belly expands as it receives the breath,
how it sinks inward toward your spine
as it releases the breath.
Like an ocean tide,
like waves at the seashore;
like a pulse; a heartbeat.
