Here are two poems that hint at inner silence and connection. Enjoy…
Being-ness in Action
Realisation of past behavioural patterns,
Exposure of my weaknesses and blockages to life
Culminate in a spark of understanding.
Then comes the command to abandon any hope
And submit to life in all its riches.
With poem and verse drumming and tearing at my heart strings
I submit – and feel myself drowning in light.
A fire has been awakened in my heart
Fueled by the absence of hope.
I glow, – energised
And feel my body aching to dance – to the rhythm of life itself.
And joy – such exquisite emotion abounds -
I am full of supercharged emptiness,
A blank page, a clean slate –
Ready for life to write its next chapter on my soul.
Take a moment to check and see if you are actually here
Before there is right and wrong
we are just here.
Before there is good or bad, or unworthy,
and before there is the sinner or saint,
we are just here.
Just meet here, where silence is
where the stillness inside dances.
before knowing something,
or not knowing.
Just meet here where all points of view merge into one
and the one point disappears
Just see if you can meet right now
where you touch the eternal
and feel the eternal living and dying at each moment.
Just to meet here
before you were an expert
before you were a beginner.
To just be here,
where you are what you always will be,
where you will never add anything to this, or subtract anything.
Meet me here where you want nothing
and where you are nothing.
The here that is unspeakable.
Where we meet only mystery to mystery
or we don’t meet at all.
Meet here where you find yourself
by not finding yourself.
In this place where quietness is deafening
and stillness moves too fast to catch it.
Meet here where you are what you want and you want what you are
and everything falls away into radiant emptiness
