The Heart

An open heart,
Unifies body and mind,
Towards the One Light.

~Dedicated to the inward path.

The Heart

Without the Heart,
The body is like barren soil.
Without the Heart,
The mind is like a dark cave.
Without the Heart,
The emotions are like a dry stream.

With an open Heart,
The body is firm and strong.
With an open Heart,
The mind is filled with light.
With an open Heart,
The emotions express unending love.

~Dedicated to all those who have the courage to let go.

Old Man Winter

Old man winter,
Whispers an eternal story,
Timeless and complete.

His breath carries,
Crimson fire painted upon,
The autumn trees.

The full moon,
Effortless perfection,
Slowly rising.

I stole kisses from Eros,
The goddess of affection.
In turn she stole my Heart,
And promissed undying Love.

~Dedicated to the opening of the Heart.

Morning Meditation

When the root is healthy,
The stem will be strong,
The flower beautiful.

Gentle rain drops,
Drinking Oolong tea,
Fall becomes Winter.

The Way

When the personality becomes empty,
The mind is naturally luminous.
When all things are seen as empty,
The original nature of things is revealed.

The Way is said to be both empty and luminous,
Empty becomes luminous; Luminous becomes empty.
Yet, the Way is constantly transcending emptiness and luminosity,
Because things are not static.

When the Way transcends both emptiness and luminosity,
Consciousness becomes enlightened.
Then, Oneness is revealed,
Within the Bliss of Union.

~Dedicated to my Dharma friends.

A wild hog drinks,
Rustling undergrowth,
Pouncing Tiger.

The snow of winter,
Buries beneath the surface,
Plants awaiting bloom.
