The earth is trying to teach humans

that everything is spirit…

Being human is an opportunity

to bring spirit into all that is material…

The quality and intensity

of resonance

emanated from a given point

is thus attracted back.


When one brings spirit

into the human realm,

it can spiritualize matter.

Matter can then become lighter,

(indeed liberated),

not as dense as before.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world,

the master calls a butterfly.

The moon does not fight.

It attacks no one.

It does not worry.

It does not try to crush others.

It keeps to its course,

but by its very nature,

it gently influences.

What other body

could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore?

The moon is faithful to its nature

and its power is never diminished.

Never say, “I cannot;”

For you are infinite.

Even time and space

are as nothing compared

with your nature.

You can do anything

and everything.

In your light

I learn how to love.

In your beauty,

how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest

where no-one sees you,

but sometimes I do,

and that sight becomes this art.

The miracle

is not to fly in the air

or to walk on the water,

but to walk on the Earth.

There is but one Life,

one World,

one Existence.

Everything is that One…

Who can find any real difference

between the wave and the sea?

You look at where you’re going

and where you are

and it never makes much sense,

but then you look back

at where you’ve been

and a pattern seems to emerge.

And if you project forward

from that pattern,

then sometimes you can come up with something.

You don’t want a million answers

as much as you want

a few forever questions.

The questions are diamonds

you hold in the light.

Study a lifetime

and you see different colors

from the same jewel.

We live in illusion

and the appearance of things.

There is a reality.

We are that reality.

When you understand this,

you see that you are nothing,

and being nothing,

you are everything.

That is all.
