(DESCENT OF THE LIGHT)

She, speaking softly

From the folds

Of the wet, dark place

Tells of Her thousand pleasures

 

What perverse misconstruction, asks She

Tells You that I am not The Center?

The Seat of Your Being…of life itself?

Why know You not that Mine is the Passageway to Heaven?

Through Mine Divine Portals

The Breath of Life blows

To scatter Seeds

Of Being…

 

What say You? Asks He

This talk of Holy Entrance?

The Seat of Life?

The Passageway to Heaven?

The Way to Heaven is through Me

What know You of pleasure, indeed?

You, who are bound to earth

To moaning, groaning, writhing and wailing

In ecstasies of the flesh

What know You of the pleasure

Of a bursting star?

Of universes that explode into Being

From molten lava

Which rises from my peak?

 

Fool above

I hear You speak

Know You not the Source

Of the sun-kissed fluid

That ignites within You the spark of Life?

A sad and lifeless sack of dry grey matter

Would You be

Were it not

For Me…

 

Great Slut below,

O Wanton One of earth and flesh

Dare You imply

That rank and reeking place

Where You reside

The Source

Of my sweet elixir of Life?

 

To be sure, My Lord,

That’s what I speak.

Come down to see

How from a thousand ecstasies

Flows the golden fluid

So vital to

Both You and Me…

 

What say You, O’ Fierce and Fearless Ruler

Of the Realm above?

Pierce the dark, warm wetness

Of my Being

With Your shaft of Light

Descend to Me so that I may envelope You

In all the sweetness of my ecstasy

So that I may whisper in Your fair ear

Of a thousand unknown things…

 

Let me wrap my huge, dark loins

About Your stiff, unyielding back

And ride upon You

Waves of endless joy

Pleasure greater than the bursting stars

Of infinite universes

Is Yours to have

For acceptance of my Realm

As the Path to Immortality…

 

Lower Yourself, my Fearless One

Into the deep, dark waters of my Being

Penetrate deeply with the flame

Of your raging passion

Explode within

My

Center

 

Though resist He tries

Her liquid words have set Him

All a quiver

He turns this way, then that

But yet is sucked like shavings by a magnet

Through the Portals

Of Her Secret Place

 

Pray not, He moans

To be forever trapped

In fleshly prison

This Light

That once

Was

I…

I realized that

I...

We

Either live in

Knowledge

Wisdom…

And

Understanding …

Or

Die

in

   Ignorance

The

Choice

Is

   Ours

And therein lay the

Limits

of our

   Human

Power

And

   Fate

 

Sweet Surrender II…

and so it is

that this life of mine has become

a journey of unfolding events

day by day

moment by moment

in which I simply let go of all

musts

and

   shoulds…

allowing myself to

   drift along…

riding

the

currents

of

   BEING

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Funny…Funny Peculiar…Not Funny Ha-Ha…

how everything in life becomes

clear…unconfused…simple…and quite evident

once the

MIND

has been

stilled…cleared…opened

to

receive

and then

   release…

      just like the breath…

   in and out…

   in and out…

   thus…

one becomes an

intermediary

between

Life

   ItSelf…

and one’s

   world…

I Am Experiencing How…

      one hundred percent acceptance of all conditions and circumstances of my life…   

   without judgement or immediate action

   of any kind…

   on my part...

   always results in constructive and positive change…

   as if by magic...

I Am Slowly Easing Out…

of the box

into which I squeezed myself

more years ago

   than I care to remember

   bit by bit…

   day by day…

      slowly climbing out of the confines of the past…

leaving the old stories behind

   as I create new ones...

it is not a

violent revolution

but a quiet

slowly moving

   evolution…

as I follow that which I cannot

see

along a path I do not

   know…
