Just Being

I am light and love.

I am not invisible,

You just can’t see me.

Lunar Eclipse

The Moon hides behind its mother,
concealing its luminous secrets,
like a kid with unspoken expectations,
feeling invisibly safe behind the shadow of its own dark side,
yet covertly hoping to be relieved from furtive and elusive desires.

Orbiting the night behind its earthly shield,
the darkened Moon shakes and prods me into new insights
with ruthless and unavoidable urgency.

A wild card ready to share its wildest dreams,
it marks the end of innocence by the painful awareness
of a sudden shift in the cosmic mysteries of life.

Puzzle pieces fall quietly from the sky,
forcing me to cross a bridge I did not recall building,
only to see it collapse behind each of my hesitant steps.

Feelings and fears and inner motivations crumble under the light
of an obscured destiny waiting for me
to unfold its wings openly, dauntlessly, lovingly.

There is nothing to do. No escape and no return.
I accept where life is taking me and discover
that the truth shines brighter at the peak of darkness.

Childbirth by Yol Swan

Embraced by the night
and warm water
surrounding your body
and mine,
you pushed through flesh and blood
to catch your first breath
before my eyes.

I welcomed pain as unavoidable,
became a witness
to my instincts,
and watched my body do
what it was meant to do
even without me.

I chanted for you
and for me,
gave my blood and breath
with no reserve,
and delved into a deep
and sacred space within me
to be divinely touched
by your arrival.

You emerged swiftly,
graciously,
like a little mermaid
awakening from the slumber
and quietude of a dream world,
smiling into my arms
and your father’s,
and filling the room
with light.

I had been waiting for you
for so long,
without even knowing it,
yearning for this sense of purpose,
this unfathomable love,
completely unaware of how
empowering
and humbling
the experience would be.

To Shanti

Blue sky by the lake surrounded by mountains NZ

You are everywhere
and nowhere to be found.
You are with no beginning
and no end, infinite
and beyond infinite.

You are everything
and nothing,
with and without form,
the illusion and the truth
of all that has ever been,
and beyond the truth as well.

You are here and there,
you are now and beyond time,
untouched and untouchable,
yet in all living beings
and in the black pain of death.

You are the light, the hope,
the spirit of it all,
the laughter and the silence
of innocence and love.

You are the heart of darkness
and the sadness in the world,
the suffering and salvation
of sins that were never yours.

You are the demon and the angel,
the tyrant and the prisoner,
the prayer and the saint,
the curse and the miracle
of life.

You are endless
and beyond endless,
the master behind all power
and the humblest of slaves.

You are eternally beyond
all names, shapes, and colors,
within the ether of space
and the brightness of light,
invisible and ever present,
beyond eternity itself.

The Mother

The Mother and the Sea

I witness your light,
your infinite smile
sheltering all creatures.

Your eyes color the universe,
illuminating the world
with order and chaos.

Where there is love,
there is no effort,
and silence happens on its own.

Anandamayi Ma's Hands

You came into my life
when I most needed you,
unraveled my fears, my doubts,
my weak and childish mind,
and embraced me in your silence.

I kneeled, vulnerable and meek,
praying for your divine glance,
for a redeeming smile,
for a blessing, or a praise.

You held me close,
gave me a taste of bliss,
then sent me away
to find you everywhere.

No, you never left me,
neither did I leave you.
You have always been with me,
guiding my every thought
and whispering through my voice.

You’ve taken so many forms,
some of love and some of pain,
even those of my worst enemies.
You’ve been the truth,
the light disguised in darkness,
and the unshakable faith
emerging from my hopelessness.
