Signs of the One Essence

Signs of the One Essence March 19, 2018

The tops of clouds that no one sees

illuminated by the sun.

 

The inside of the heart that no one sees

softened by the soul.

 

The calm waiting at the center

of all silence.

 

The warmth waiting at the center

of all feeling.

 

The coolness waiting at the bottom

of a lake.

 

The emptiness waiting at the bottom

of all ideas.

 

The first sign of light that stirs

birds to sing.

 

The wordless beginning that awakens

the encumbered.

 

Understanding is only the movement

between seasons.

 

A Question to Walk With: Describe your sense of the Unity of Life.

This excerpt is from my book, The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting, 2016 Nautilus Award Winner.
