II




Everything that appears real,
Everything that you have been told,
Everything that you have come to believe,
Is all the fabrication of your mind.

* * * *
There is no path.
There is no dogma.
There is only the absolute,
And a universe of appearances
Disguising the way home.

* * * *
There has ever been now,
Will ever be now,
Is ever now.
Never has there been any time
Other than now.

* * * *
When you are satiated of identity,
Weary of meaningless experiences,
When you would even die to be free,
You will do whatever needs to be done
To spin no more on the web of suffering.

* * * *
Love can only be total, unconditional.
Other uses of the word are of self-absorption,
Incomplete, limited, conditional, manipulative, painful.

* * * *
Give it what proper name you will:
God, Allah, Brahman, Tao, Buddha, Krishna,
Christ, Great Spirit, Way, Absolute, Supreme, Totality,
Or any of the many other labels it is given throughout the world,
It is ever oneness cloaked by the same diverse mystery.

* * * *
It is natural to want to know who you are,
But the thoughts of self, the attachment to persona,
The encasements of identity: labels, definitions, conclusions,
Are not the vehicles that will truly get you home.
All concoctions, all speculations of mind,
Are only obstacles to the journey.
