I'll meet you here

Laying down the cloak of
an imaginary, individual self,
the one I burden myself with
throughout the day,
laying down the cloak of
an imaginary, individual self,
I am free
I am ready to be myself
with no limits
nothing to bind me
nothing to hold me.
I am willing to walk
into the space that
completely envelopes me and
intertwines with my breath,
being, heart and core
until I cannot tell
what is space and what is me.

My breath is now just breath
my being is now just being
my heart is now just heart
my core is now just core.

I am unfettered by the limits
of ordinariness, of being human.
I bathe, dance and delight
in space, my true nature
in which I can walk
naked and unashamed.
I am willing to forgo
certainty and knowing
for a life of being known.
I am willing to leave behind
fear, insecurity and doubt
for a moment of complete freedom
both scary and utterly safe
as it emerges step by step.

Here the light is so bright
I cannot see the path, yet
my heart senses it.
Letting go,
I can easily find it.
Letting go,
there is no more becoming.
I bathe, dance and delight
in the light shining
from my own heartspace
intermingling with the true light,
no more inside and outside
no more mine and other.
I bathe, dance and delight
in oneness, my true nature.

I’ll meet you here.

The pool of silence

My heart is full
of unformed words
dancing at the edge of
a pool of silence
that has no name.

Dive into the pool
leave behind the clumsy language
that cannot represent
the fullness here.

The silence embraces
bathes, cleanses, empties
washes away any feelings
of otherness.

Becoming silence
I merge with its essence
I forget any separation
I remember my name and
the name of the pool in which
I am completely immersed.

We are one.

The seeking heart and the clumsy words
have found their home
recognised their own being
in the pool of oneness.

We swim together
dance together
delighting in the oneness
of our true name.

Slipping away

Mind so easily slips away
from the space of silence
into doing.
A busyness created by
thinking about work
a to-do list;
not getting things done
but thinking about them.
As much energy wasted
as could be expended in
the actual doing.

this is taking place
mind can so easily slip back
into the space of silence.
It may not stay for long
even though the space of silence
is its natural home.

Each time I notice
mind slipping away into doing
into busyness
I can invite it to slip back
into the space of silence
to rest and to enjoy.

Tomorrow morning
as you lie cosy and warm in bed
reluctant to arise
reluctant for the day to begin
the feeling of gratitude
that surged
through every cell of your being today
as you stood on the lawn
with the wind pinking your cheeks and
chilling your hands.

the expression of gratitude
that lightened your thoughts
to joy and contentment instead of
being insular and complaining.

the feeling of gratitude
to be noticing
mushrooms in the grass
a worm playing at your feet
the sparkle of morning dew
the openness of the sky.

the experience of gratitude
that led into meditation
providing calmness and clarity
stability and evenness
to the whole being.

Tomorrow morning
when the habitual feelings arise
of snuggling down and
staying there a bit longer
the awareness of vitality
that accompanied gratitude
the wakefulness that was present
in being outside and
experiencing the wind
the morning sunshine
the freshness of a new day.
