path to being

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.

 

 

I tried to stop the mind from thinking.

What a joke!

As if I could stop the sun from shining.

These two are powerful forces of nature.

Neither good nor bad,

And often quite helpful.

When the mind is not,

The best I can do

Is to find some shade

Under the branches of mindful presence

And all-inclusive Love.

When I sit,

My ego fades away

But quickly returns

When I check

How long I sat for.

Sitting is a no-time no-ego zone.

Time strings the ego along.

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.
