Rest and Relaxation

First of all,
stop worrying —

it’s pointless, although
saying that is pointless too!

In the dreamy drama of existence,
nobody is actually implicated.

Truly, “nobody” is our
original condition, before
the urge to fret crept up on us.

Whatever is seen, felt, or imagined
is not even real, so don’t bother
giving it a second thought!

Let go of the struggle!

Something is just about to
break your heart right now –
all you need do is let it.

You won’t survive.
It will, Love will.

It’s desire birthed you,
just so that it could
taste itself as you.

Why not kindly return the favor
by tasting just like yourself?

At the cave entrance tonight, there’s
a bowl filled with clear still water
awaiting its mate, moonshine.

Hands in my lap, back pressed
against this smooth cool cliff,
work’s done for the day.

Nothing to grasp at
or turn away –

relax, right now,
all is well.

bowl of moonshine
