where all grow,
from which all receive their nourishment,
and to which all return.
As long as we keep chasing light
afraid of the dark within,
we'll remain in exile,
bound by myriad confusions.
There is a question with the
power to liberate,
one question which if followed all the way through,
with devotion and courage,
will carve a pathway home.
“Who am I?
or to what,
is this experience occurring?”
You’ll find that every
is just another object of awareness.
Discover the subject.
To do so, you have to be willing
to admit the entirety of your ignorance,
to become intimate with all that you fear,
to forgive yourself the suffering caused by misidentification,
and dissolve completely into the void.
When you realize yourself as no-thing
you’ll feel the greatest relief,
and when, as that no-thing, you look out at the world,
you’ll see you everywhere,
all beings one at last.
In this love you’ll know that light is born in the dark,
movement in the unmoving,
sound in silence.
Here you are free to give everything you are,
in all directions,
