Whoever 

Whoever wrote this

isn’t me.

Maybe, as you read it,

it’s more you.

Or both of us, or neither – 

any way 

emptiness brimming

possibilities and actualities 

mutually manifesting

each other emptying.

One

Pain is a painful avenue

for transformation

and joy is a joyous one. 

In either case,

who is transformed? 

Is there

one, 

even in and as

this and that transformation, 

who remains 

pure and untrammeled,

one

who is not

in the least 

subject to causes and conditions,

one

who is not contingent upon

anything at all? 

Right here, 

how do you

express this one

now upon now

in myriad ways?

Unending Arrival 

Not anxious to arrive

at your destination,

here you are

Reality 

Uncertainty

is the structure of reality, 

chosen action

(including inaction) 

its inviolable functioning. 

Needed 

What exactly  

is needed? 

Composing 

Being composed, 

you transparently compose – 

composer and composed

not-two. 

Composition 

Com-passion is

the transparent enactment

of mutuality, 

of being with and as others, 

of com-position. 

Ones Like You 

Ones like you,  

by simply and naturally 

not reacting to anger

with anger, 

may dissipate conflict 

unawares. 

Emergency 

Is there something

in what is before you

that bares our dire emergencies

and our flight from them,  

disclosing their causes

and grounding creative solutions –

so that emergency

is at once

the way 

of our healing emergence? 

Many As One

Past individual acts of conscience – 

like a great cloud of birds

dipping, turning, soaring as one –

time to fire your mirror neurons.
