abundant joy

December 9, 2017

If you cannot adore the Goddess
in the form of your own Breath,
where will you find Her,
where will you find Her?
If you cannot praise the Creator
as your mind’s own clear
and radiant silence before
a single thought arises,
why call his name,
why call his name?
‘Allah,’ ‘Jesus,’ ‘Buddha,’ ‘Ram’
need not be spoken
when the ocean of love
pours into your chest
and garlands your heart
with the light of a thousand stars.
Dear friend, your Beloved
has no plan, no commandment,
but abundant joy.
