Feels like new and powerful
Like a tree without the knots
Like life without suffering
Like a horse drinking from a clear water stream
I felt the clarity move through me
And I had no fear.
IN the distance a hawk would cry
And I would understand what it meant to be free.
Where do I go from here?
This old death and new life
I follow the stream of my ancestors
Feeling the two of me join together
The past with the future–
Together they form the present.
A gift of awareness I saw in the deep
Well of the world and all that was loved
Full in the air between the breeze
And the rush of melted mountain snow
And in that instant I saw the crack of lightening
From deep within that spring
A shadow parting from me
A power settling in beneath
A seething energy.
And in that instant there was no time
No place for me to be
Only the beginning and the end as one
I was in an endless pasture
A ball of fire
Flying through the nothingness of infinity.
I became whole.
I became me.
