Gerhard Richter, Two Candles (1982)

Sit

Breathe

Breathe more

but slower

Slower still

In

and

out

be aware

of the sensation of the breath

thoughts may come

but return to the

sensation of the breath

 

The breath that comes from the Creator

breath that brings life

life and light

breathe in the life and see the light

 

Look to the light

the light of the world

confronting darkness

new life and light

 

The light of truth

shining in every corner of our lives

illuminating our darkness

seeking out each smudge of sin

 

But see how soft the light is

feel the warmth of its gaze

transforming and healing

melting each misdemeanor

breathe and let there be light.
