Transcendence, anger, fear, and the open door

I am the only open door
leading to true transcendence –

Do not be fooled;
not even anger can take you there

Fear never leads to transcendence
so if you want transcendence
you must also put down fear

Be blank
let me re-write you

Middle of the night acquiescing

Wake up, whispers the Lord
begrudgingly, I do
Get out of bed, whispers the Lord
to this, I resist
until after the fifth time, I groan and acquiesce,
pull back the shades
and see the full moon stunningly waiting –

The call to nothing

My lovely one, rest
Let not your heart be troubled
Dirt does nothing;
its power comes in its being,
its acceptance that it does nothing
its humility
its surrender

Total consummation

Lightly scented wafts of fragrance
delicate panting over me
Alleluia, you draw near
Alleluia, you pass within
Alleluia, you subsume
to total consummation

Early morning

Lovingly, the birds sing
and a woodpecker taps somewhere, unseen
the lightening sky and rising sun comfort them, too

To the lost

I. God

I have tried to direct you in love
but you took the errant path
which looked better until followed

II. Me

Miles and miles I backtracked
trying to find that source
that first moment I chose not to love

Morning at the lake

Line of glowing light
at horizon, water meets sky
outlining numinous sacred trysting place

Carpet of scintillating light
rolled upon the water, right to me
sun-star to heart

Birds wing over water in one long line
black and free
joyous

Water laps upon sand,
tender heartbeat –
my heart aligns, returns home

The return home

Some paths are more circuitous than others
it is not about completing the path
it is about committing to the path
alleluia

The freedom of non-being

Mandala
wiped away
free to be free
