Dream Costumes

The same love is everywhere, all pervading, all around. The same love comes with many different faces, flowing through ‘friends’, ‘strangers’ or ‘enemies’, all in apparent disguise; all guiding the way, all pointing to the same place. The same generous wisdom and truth playing in many different dream costumes, in many different roles…Light can be hidden, yet is always available… even in the darkest places… We’ve all been there, it is all us…

The human face tells the story… yet the story dissolves and becomes transparent… the speaker and the listener become merged, timelessly suspended as the story unfolds…. and every story becomes the same story, an unbroken seeing…. behind, before, around, within… All is held and embraced by the deeper intelligence beyond…

Not Knowing

If you are breaking open
and there is no ground or walls,
nor person to say “Yes I am that”,
If there is no knowing nor faith
and no desire;

If you have discovered
that everything you believe in,
all that you touch, dissolves;
If nothing can be confirmed,

What do you do?

I stay still, feeling,
listening, quietly;

If the pain grows deeper – let it,
If the fear comes stronger – let it,

If disturbance comes to destroy
this entire world – let it!

What could I do
but stay in my heart?
Stay here, where
something is burning.

And whilst I wait between
unknowable and unknown,

Perhaps the life
that is warm and moving
will carry my understanding
deeper, to a place where

All this breaking will only have been
the tearing down of walls:
the walls of my being.

So if it hurts and feels like it’s the end,
maybe it’s only the beginning of beyond;
Because the walls are not me
and all I ever asked for was to be free:
Free of all that is not true,
Free to merge with infinity,
to meet G-d – Fully.

(It was a name we were given
for that which has no name.)

All that ever remains is this longing.
