The Blessings Of Balance

THE BLESSINGS OF BALANCE

As above, so also so below
As within, so also so without

So blessed are we who toe the line
So blessed are we who won’t so do

So blessed are we who see it not at all
So blessed we simply for blessing’s sake

Out Of Balance

OUT OF BALANCE

Intellect needs heart
Without care its achievements
Only end in tears

Poise

Crane At Sunset

 

POISE

Balanced on one leg
Motionless, a crane inhales
The gold of sunset

What My Teacher Taught Me

WHAT MY TEACHER TAUGHT ME

Each relationship
Calls forth both love and power
A balancing trick

The Whole Truth

THE WHOLE TRUTH

Stand shameless, erect
Lopsided, life without taint
Cherish each blemish

Seed words: “Blemish”, “Erect”, “Lopsided”.

It’s ages since I tried one of these. So much to do; so little time. Thank God for parallel universes. 🙂

Getting Things Into Perspective

GETTING THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE

Bible to Zazen
A-jump-and-a-half … but then
… Zazen to Bible

Beyond Or Beware

BEYOND OR BEWARE

Transit of Venus
Prefigures a pentagram
Pointing to the stars
The morning … the evening
See time and space blown away

We’ve seen another
The pentagram bastardised
A dark inversion
Evokes demonic powers
Since all exists within us

Bach To The Future

Testing Testing One Two

TESTING TESTING ONE TWO

Two is at heart one
While One manifests as two
Maintain your balance

Saturn In Libra

SATURN IN LIBRA

Death and destruction
The scales remain in balance
The whole remains one
