Porta

gate within gate
the thousand-pillared halls of the self:

yield to the seeker, the one who searches!
yield to the beginning,
the passing, the everlasting now!
yield to the coming, the going,
the self-surpassing pilgrimage!

yield to Being,
and be.

Lesson #233 of the Inner Life

The pursuit of virtue does not begin tomorrow.
Nor does it begin when you are devout.

Precipice

all things have led here
to You, the Abyss, the final choice,
the ultimate reality,
the razorblade of existence.

meaninglessness laps at my feet,
but i ignore the cold,
warmed by the cold of probability
and the madness of Divine Excess.

the breath before the plunge is this:
let me be, O One Who Is.
