My Journey with My Sky Beacon

Postby Arcturus Descending » Fri Jul 15, 2022 4:45 pm

I followed that star.
Its light shown down through the night -
warm sands beneath me.

A hilly landscape,
seen in the silent distance,
softly welcomed me.

A place I shall call
"ineffable solitude"
swirled all around me.

"Where are you going,
my exquisite sky beacon
and shall I follow?"

I asked once again.
Its starlight seemed uncertain
trembling on its path.

I saw a white glow -
just a sliver of a moon
in a sky's pocket.

Twilight descended.
I paused and sat a moment.
It ALL pulled me in.

The sands were shifting.
Showers of cherry blossoms?
A marvelous sight!

The tree stood upright.
A desert Cherry Blossom?
"What has brought you here?"

"That star you follow.
You need only remember.
Where you are - I Am."

I smiled - remembered.
The Cherry Blossoms glistened,
lit up by New Light.

I heard its whisper.
I saw it slowly rising -
my hilly landscape.

Higher and higher -
its form, shifting, called to me.
Above, my sky beacon.

"Am I to climb this
shifting structure made of sand?
How does one begin?"

My sky beacon heard.
"Jump in! See where it leads you."
Its light spoke to me.

I hesitated.
"I am so in fear of this!"
Its light warmed to me.

Hope and Desire.
I heard them call out to me.
"Amen!" I jumped in.
BE MELTING SNOW. WASH YOURSELF OF YOURSELF.

YOU WANDER FROM ROOM TO ROOM
HUNTING FOR THE DIAMOND NECKLACE
THAT IS ALREADY AROUND YOUR NECK!

DANCE UNTIL YOU SHATTER YOURSELF!

THERE IS A VOICE THAT DOESN'T USE WORDS. LISTEN!

LIFE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO!

LET SILENCE TAKE YOU TO THE CORE OF LIFE!
