Like This

There is a community of the Spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the Other Eye.
Open your hands
if you want to be held.
Consider what you've been doing!
Why do you stay with such a mean-
spirited and dangerous partner?
For the security of having food,
admit it!
Here's a better arrangement: Give up this life,
and get a hundred new lives.
Sit down in this circle.
Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the Shepherd's Love filling you.
At night, your Beloved wanders.
Don't take pain-killers.
Tonight, no consolations.
And don't eat.
Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover's mouth in yours.
You moan, "But she left me. He left me."
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying
Think of Who Created Thought!
Why do you stay in prison
When the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in Silence.
Flow down and down in always
Widening rings of Being.

this is so inspiring, Cristy! Thank you very much for sharing...it's very apropo to how I'm feeling right now (fearful).
