Reflections In a Sphere

Hand_with_Reflecting_Sphere“If each had a candle and they went in together the differences would disappear.” – Rumi

What do I see

What is what

What is do

What is I

What is see

Now we begin

I do not know what I am

I do not know what I do

I do not know this place

But here I am

What is here

Where is where

What are these … zinging around in nothing

I like that…zinging

Wonder

What are these things in front of me

What are things

I can touch things

Here I am

What is this…Sphere

I will just sit here where I am and look into this Sphere

I think I see something…else

I am being watched

There is something there staring back at me

I AM

Walking on the Shores of Oblivion

I walk on the shores of Oblivion
I long to swim in the waters of not knowing

There are many old goats who think they know
They confuse a thing with words which can not be spoken

I have never read the Vedas or Upanishads
Nor the Book of the Dead

I know nothing
I am blissfully empty as a pot after dinner

My teachers, the quiet
My heroes, the meek

Love flows from their lives
It fills every low place lifting all

Others seek to control and contain
But the fire spreads

It flows in our veins
We feel and live the Truth

The Truth is simple and for All
No secrets

To get back to the garden
To lay down that which was not ours to take

Oblivion is my destiny
I shall joyfully walk its shores and forget myself
