WITNESSING EACH MOMENT
THE FIRST & LAST MOMENT OF LIFE IN FORM*

to its experience,
to its perceptions.
When we go beyond self,
there’s no relationship between self
and what is experienced.
There’s just the immediacy
of being the entire field of experience—being it,
versus ‘me’ experiencing it.
Falling apart, holding it all together.
Then falling apart, then coming back together.
Cycles of clarity and confusion.
Hopelessness and hope.
Heartbreak and bliss.
Knowing who we are and why we are here in one moment,
deflated in the next
as an old dream is recycled into the vast.
inside the body the sacred process
of death and rebirth unfolds.
At times an expression of unity and order;
at other times chaos and multiplicity.
Each pole a carrier of wisdom, guidance,
and the water of life.
but there is no solid ground from which to orient.
No familiar reference point to look back to or rest in.
Raw. Open. Pregnant. Potential.
But what will be reborn from the ashes
has not yet been given.
we lose contact with that which was never
and was never “together” to begin with.
That innate radiance,
the holiness of the breath,
and the miracle of having
an open sensitive nervous system.
We disconnect with the magic of embodied presence,
the wisdom of the earth,
and the unshakable confidence in our true nature.
with “holding it all together,”
we split off from our organic spontaneity,
and the truth that the beloved will take
whatever form it must
to reveal its qualities within us.
Raw, achy, illuminating heartbreak
may approach at any time,
requesting safe passage inside.
But it is through this broken aliveness
that the poetry of our lives will flow.
is the secret place.
Send your awareness, vision, and breath
into that temple,
where the light and dark play in union.
Enter the mysterium.
it is from there that something new may emerge.

INFINITE, TIMELESS, IMMORTAL TRUTH OF BEING

is the river
is the loon's throat.
Have you ever asked yourself how
the loon's voice
Even if the blue place you are dreaming
is no longer there
you must begin.
these heavy bones
miraculous as a feather
forms along the blade
of each wing.
you wait as every part of you sheds
what once was,
and is no longer
And what will it cost you?
haunting and wild, now
still in your throat, now
Set it free
whatever it may cost you
set it free.
