awaken, blaze, light the world

meditation

 

The

desire to go

home that is a desire to

be whole, to know where you are,

to be the point of intersection of all the lines

drawn through all the stars, to be the constellation-maker

and the center of the world, that center called love. To awaken

from sleep, to rest from awakening, to tame the animal,

to let the soul go wild, to shelter in darkness

and blaze with light, to cease to

speak and be perfectly

understood.

How

can you help but 

grow wise with such teachings  

as these – the untrimmable light of

the world, the ocean’s shine,

the prayers that are

made out of

grass?
