The masochist is the sadist.
The martyr is the narcissist.
The persecutor is also persecuted.
The virgin and the whore.
The vile and the pure.
The wicked one.
It’s all in there,
in me and in you.
All in there, where there are no victims,
Not when everything is you.
Not when your cosmic nature is so blazingly obvious
that everyone, even your friend the cynic, has to admit:
You are wild and unstoppable.
But go ahead, delay your homecoming.
Sweep yourself up into tidy little piles of broken mess.
Tell yourself and the world that you’ve got a plan, a goal and a destination.
And whatever you do, don’t exhale or breathe deeply,
no, not until you’ve attained something achieved something validated yourself
Chase the carrot of false security.
And while you’re at it,
humble yourself with false humility,
the kind that keeps your unworthiness in check.
The kind that keeps you hiding.
The kind that keeps you prideful and judgmental.
The kind that you will always cheat on
because you know you are more
Forget your tidy piles!
So you can be vast again.
Forget the simple conditions upon your life,
forget the timeline you have prescribed for yourself and others,
forget the rules of the game,
forget the lines drawn in the sand,
forget the numbers in your bank account,
forget the opinions of others,
forget your coping skills.
For once, will you own the one thing you have and leave the rest behind?
The limitless one walks upon the bridge leading to the gates of the fifth dimension.
At the gates, the eyes of the Sphinx are open.
The heart of Christ and the Magdalene, open.
The burning bush is within you and upon you – it IS you!
You feel the heat, hotter and hotter the closer you get.
The faint of heart will run back into the imaginary security of institutionalized living.
But not you,
oh deathless one.
You stand in the fire.
All that does not serve is being incinerated.
Sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly
And your true primal and sacred self is being reborn.
Into black, space, nothingness
you are reborn.
Your flashlight and your compass are one and the same,
and now you know
what you’ve always known.
you are here
