WHY WOULD I CLOSE MY EYES?
But... I don’t want to close my eyes,
I told The Beautiful One, The Merciful,
And make that Journey so deep within,
To Heaven, at the Heart of Being.
Was to find You, and Die in Your arms.
And I did find You… and I did Die There,
In the Ecstasy of nonexistent Existence.
And I a part of it, I found You... Here,
A Divine Stowaway, inhabiting my Heart,
Within me… in Creation… Everywhere.
And shut out Your Manifest Beauty,
To seek You, within, as Unmanifest Love,
When now... there is nowhere Love is not.
Your Perfume, and the pull of Your Embrace,
Calling home my Wandering Attention,
From its Enjoyment of You as this world.
But the shawl in which You are wrapped,
This body, not an imprisoning cage,
But the foreclosure You have Inhabited...
And furnished with Love.
Start from anywhere.
You are a perfect circle, and so deeply interconnected,
with everything in your life.
which is the simplest because it does not involve other human beings.
The others are a little complex;
it is better to let them come on their own.
because your understanding of love is not the authentic love.
It is simply biological infatuation,
and if you start with that you have gone astray.
because meditation is the only thing
that biology has not given to you.
It has a tremendous force of its own.
That’s why the physiologist or the biologist will account for everything
but will never mention the word ‘meditation’.
Start with meditation – and that’s what is happening to you, effortlessly.
Sitting with me, listening to me,
a silence enters into your heart and suddenly
you feel springs of love unaddressed,
radiating in all directions.
it is simply being loving.
because it is not coming from biology.
It is not coming from your past,
it is not coming from all your conditionings;
it is coming from the
spontaneous experience of silence.
And suddenly you see
a great aroma of love around you.
