Fall into your sadness, dear –
don’t hold back
I want you to know
It has an infinite capacity for loving.
There are a thousand reasons to be sad.
If they are yours, embrace them.
G-d never asked his children to be happy
always. You can love whilst weeping.
Here is the secret:
You don’t have to be perfect to love
perfectly. A broken heart is full of light
Sadness keeps the great fire burning.
Don’t be ashamed. Fall in deeply.
The great Loving that you are
wants to spill out quite brilliantly.
G-d will kiss you so sweetly if you let it.
If you haven’t come to speak about love
then i don’t want to hear.
There is enough talk of shame,
of lost ones, fallen.
The G-d I know
never turned a soul away
who said one word: please.
I am through with courage
through with wisdom
through with strength and skill.
If there isn’t a place for everyone
I have already gone.
Forget about everything
No flower needs to make an effort
to be beautiful.
There is a simple truth.
It isn’t learnt.
I’ve lost interest in everything
Say nothing. Don’t speak it.
Words make shadows.
Don’t even touch the path to G-d
It’s far too dangerous for lovers.
You don’t need to do anything
to be here.
Tell me about the Love
that is happening now.
Light is not a secret
I want to feel it inside you:
How there is no distance
between us at all.
I don’t want to speak about
how difficult this is,
Because i’d like to believe
there is a sweetness here somewhere;
A secret key hidden –
I’ll find it
and turn all the desperate star filled nights
into days of dancing.
The moon took me tonight,
took me with her luminous beauty
hanging there, so secret, so full
and wrapped me, a million times around.
I wish she had wrapped me
a million times more,
so that I might have drawn
closer, enough to stay;
Because the light she reflects
was always soft and true,
and she never whispers anything
that is not love.
A friend put his hand on my heart
then took it away completely,
so now when the wind blows
it blows right through me.
Everything I thought was me
hurts too much to keep,
I walk like a person
but feel all air and space.
I hoped he could touch my mind
so I would lose that too,
because all I ever ask for
is to be fully empty.
The moon has gone behind clouds
and the wind is not blowing.
I am becoming unwrapped.
I sit like a person, an old, tired person.
Out of existence
We are spinning
There are a million things
No – more
We do not see
What holds us
When we hold no more
There are a million things
we can not know
No – more
In the sun they say
there is a secret
I shall stay awake all night
sitting within my own stillness.
I shall listen for the echo of the drum beat
then journey to its source.
I shall return to that place from which the heart whispers;
Where lovers reveal moonlight secrets:
where spirit is born.
At dawn I will go out
into the unbroken day.
I shall walk lightly with clear eyes and an open heart
so that I will be present to receive your blessings
with the awareness that they deserve.
I shall bathe in the music of new beginnings
and bear witness to the mysteries you have revealed.
When the world stirs I will turn to face you and say “YES!
and YES!” because I am not afraid to give myself completely
whilst honouring my own sweet truth;
So that each step is a humble offering
to adorn your dance.
I shall empty my mind to receive what we had always known
then bow down to honour your beauty.
I will remember yesterday’s sorrows
only for the wisdom which they taught.
And what was not given with love I shall set aside:-
Liberating our ancient hurts
to be returned to that place from which the heart whispers;
Where lovers create sun-kissed futures
and spirit is born
