Not a mental space.
Not done in cyber space.
Not a substitution.
Not a destination.
Not a big black door.
Not a ring that keeps on ringing.
Not a finger.
Not a toe.
Not another day.
Not somewhere far away.
Not way back then.
Not a memory on repeat.
Not an excuse.
Not a reason.
Not a justification.
Not a compromise.
Follow what you follow,
and mean it.
Stand for it, before it,
Words precede action.
Action is the force
that ends redundant thought,
You must see it to be it.
The person, the holy grail.
You must love what you love
in yourself, out there.
To feel what will become
you. To feel that breath
upon your face. To close your eyes
and know. To close the book and know.
To sit in the sun. And weep.
Cannot be in your head.
forever. Cannot be put off until
next year. Nothing matters more,
than grace. Grace is generated
in the humble, indomitable heart.
The heart that rides a wild horse
that no man or situation can stop.
Not when the horse is hungry, not when the heart is called to its kindred.
Not when the light is seeking its own.
Come together. Coalesce.
Truly get up! Sing out! Find your way!
Give everything to the Mother Fire.
Be a dancer, for real. Be a poet, for real.
Paint your face like a warrior, for real.
Get your feet wet. Get your hands dirty.
Crawl on your knees. Cry when you pray. Pray to be near the dearest of dear. Take the first real step to living the earthy dream of the mystic.
This is not something that Facebook can provide. This is something that takes communion and commitment. Don’t try to slip by, slip in. Get something for nothing. You are everything. Everything is everything. There is no replacement for the real thing- for sunshine, for tears, for music or for you. Sharada Devi
