Divine Nature

Seeing you last night,

Dear Cosmic Dancer,

Released me from

A 1,000 ways

Of hiding from your Love.

No more hiding.

As rhythmless as I am,

Accept me as your student.

 

 

Today,

I move through the world

In a sitting position

Seeking after Life

With all my senses.

I’m like a dog,

Sniffing every scent,

In search of its Master.

 

Can I manage

To be still enough

To discover Life’s expressions

And then express its revelations?

No.

Not until all my efforts are

Given back to Life itself.

This morning,

I left my house

Intent on becoming somebody

On showing the World

Just how important I am.

And you wouldn’t believe

Who I met along the way.

The World,

Looking lost,

Searching for its own importance.

Now, I’m on my way back home,

A nobody with a new friend.

 

Excuse my silence,

And my slow unfolding movement.

I am like an unborn baby

Resting in the Infinite Ocean

Of the Cosmic Womb.

At sunrise,

I am baptized in the Infinite Ocean of Love.

At midday,

I sit on my cushion and disappear into Emptiness.

By nightfall,

I have climbed the eight limbs

To rest in Shiva’s bosom.

And that’s not the end of it.

No, not the end of it.

Sometimes I am up at midnight,

And if you peek inside the window of my soul,

You will likely see me

Whirling nonstop to the instruments of Love.
