All living beings have Self-hood
trees, plants, animals, humans
but only humans question where this
sense of Self came from
the rest of Nature dances in the bliss of Self
while only humans are ignorant of the deep Self
that is the same Self in all Beings,
That’s why nature gives us plants that can open our minds, our inner vision
to the erotic dance of infinity throbbing in creation
and the ecstatic bliss of existence…
and why nature gives us the body which through pleasure, and pain,
through love, and intoxication, through dance, exercise and sex
can reveal its inner treasures, can open us to the next
level of human evolution
the birth of the cosmic Self,
at One with the world around us
no longer driven to fight and fuss and cuss
aware of the Oneness as are the animals
and the Wholeness of the body and mind –
the birth of multidimensional human kind.
IN US LIES A DEEPER KNOWING
THAN OUR MINDS CAN EVER FULLY GRASP
WHEN WE SURRENDER TO THE DIVINE WITHIN
WE CAN NOW TRUE PEACE AT LAST.
But the path to peace is not direct
nor is it straight and narrow
it dives and ducks, enthralls us
and fucks us up
it breaks our chains
and can seem to drive us insane
BUT THIS IS THE NATURE OF THE GAME.
We need to anchor ourselves in a sense of spiritual unity
in nature and in community
find meaning in our lives
and learn the lessons from our strife
celebrate and respect all life.
Life is a unity of spirit and matter
of mind and emotion,
of self-hood and transcendent Self:
through the destruction of our illusions
the Cosmic Age of Aquarius is born.
