THRESHOLD, answering the Big question


PATH TO GALAXY

 

Each step is a new threshold

An invitation, an opportunity

A celebration, a mystic moment

Each step,

Foot in front of foot

Thought followed by another

A sound that welcomes

    the next sound

A feeling that moves to the

    next feeling.

~

There is a space of in-between

sensorial moments

Where you receive

    information.

Where you receive the

Great questions

Where Alchemy mixes

   the improbably with

   the impossible

~

Not audible, not tactile

Not seen, unnoticed

Right there waiting

A nano second

A revelation,

An  awakening

    of absolute knowing

~

Beyond all your alert senses

Beyond your greatest understanding

Beyond what you have been told

Beyond what you thought true.

~

The heart races wildly

The skin tingles and shivers

Vision moves within to the unseen

Energy smells like lightening

Swells to engage the Infinite

And you cross

~

You have stepped over

    the threshold wide Awake

Wisdom of All times fills you

and You know …

Light and Darkness

Love and Fear

     share each other

Need each other to

thrive

One can not be

      without the other.

~

Every moment

Every moment

Every moment

You stand at a threshold

How will You hold the Paradox?

LIFE ON EARTH


The stirring of the world around me in the rising of Spring’s renewal , and  the intense enveloping of the political world, give me a clear view of the duality that I rest in every day.   There is no avoiding either.    Better to settle into the greening and the thunder, then to let the angry righteousness of people fill me with fear and victimization.

Give me Earth’s Wisdoms, however it chooses to unfold.

Rise up to the Great Awakening

Out there is the Kingdom of God

Take wonder and awe at The Infinite

Embrace the Oneness of the Universe

~

Out there is the Kingdom of God

Standing on the lush crest looking outward

Embrace the Oneness of the Universe

Smelling the rising green of Spring’s awakening

~

Standing on the lush crest looking outward

Make witness to Creation’s magnificence

Smelling the rising green of Spring’s awakening

Take belief in the perfection of Spirit

~

Make witness to Creation’s magnificence

Darkness and Light are Earth’s gravity

Take belief in the perfection of Spirit

Know the destruction of Element’s colliding

~

Darkness and Light are Earth’s gravity

It is in their embrace that we find wholeness

Know the destruction of Element’s colliding

Love holds the soft and harsh of living

~

It is in their embrace that we find wholeness

Will you gather what soothes and what gives anguish?

Love holds the soft and harsh of living

Fear flourishes in the grip of self-righteousness

~

Will you gather what soothes and what gives anguish?

Can you swim in the pool of loneliness?

Fear flourishes in the grip of self-righteousness

Will you let in differences to end fearfulness?

~

Can you swim in the pool of loneliness?

Forgiveness is in the Spring of renewal

Will you let in differences to end fearfulness?

Gratitude is ever present in an open heart

~

Forgiveness is in the Spring of renewal

Take wonder and awe at The Infinite

Gratitude is ever present in an Open heart

Rise up to the Great Awakening

CHOOSE LOVE


In my early years of experiencing poetry, I always thought it had to rhyme and have specific stanza in some sort of orderly fashion.  Much of what I read once past 14, seemed so esoteric and confusing.  I would wonder, what the heck did all that mean cause people were saying it’s good and amazing and …. well, very little of it made sense to me not even if I urged myself to read the poem over several times.  I was turned off and dismissed it.  Except for Dr. Seuss, cause he was playful and rhythmic and comprehensible in a totally entertaining way.  right?

 

My first real feeling for poetry came in my late teens with Kahlil Gibran  and his book The Prophet.  Everything about his words touched me.  The spirit of his writing, his story telling, the lack of rhyme, the flow, the human connection to being connected to each other; I felt pulled into something grand and meaningful in a way I guess I was ready to ‘hear’ and be engaged in.  I have given that book to many people over the years.

 

Poetry that moves me, seems to be the melding of nature and the human Spirit.  The metaphor found in what is outside of us living inside of us.  The magnificent connection to what might seem unlikely, and yet is perfectly aligned with some kind of Alchemy that makes stars out of dirt and leaves.  The beauty in the asymmetry of life and the rising of love from the heart’s remembrances.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There has never been a time I have not loved you

Even in the despicable face of your violence and insanity

Love resides, I just forgot in the fear of it

Fear and Love suffer with no embrace

Until I love the fear away in my awakening

 

I will find a way to Love the fear away

When the earth cracks open, and the sea consumes,

and vortex of wind sucks away life, and

Sun gives no relent for weeks.

 

And you, swallowed the seasons in their terror

to gather and spewed them from your pain and fear

in every way the ‘dark night of your soul’ could

I will love you anyway.

 

Love is the way to peace.  It’s the way through fear.

I choose love.
