ALL SIMPLY IS
NOTHING OF CREATION
CAN MURDER IMMORTALITY
"Nothing is possible in love without death,”
says the Sufi.
The soul’s love for God frees us from our self,
and yet this freedom can seem like death,
as we die to the person we think we are.
to our limited sense of self
in order to step into the vaster
dimension of our being.
who want security and stability
from those who are
reckless, crazy, or driven enough
to venture into the depths.
in her caravanserai
when every moment camel bells cry,
“Pack up the loads!”?
the terrifying whirlpool,
how can they know of our state,
those who go lightly along the shore?
Life is what we experience,
and we cannot and do not know
what the next moment of experience will be.
we reactively and automatically
try to control what we experience.
we have to let go of the illusion of control,
and that is exactly what we do in meditation.
Return to what is already there and rest.
When you Don't Know,
there is a crack in the delusion of mind.
And you can be penetrated
by an entire Universe.
Nor is it stupidity.
It is Curiosity. It is Wonder.
It is the relaxation of the separate 'I',
and the presence of great Compassion.
by a tired sun exploding into reds and oranges,
by a yellow moon and a trillion distant stars,
so far yet so close,
so distant yet so Here.
The 'I' cannot understand it.
Not Knowing is its gateway.
Surrender to the moon.
