Where Do You Dwell


You,
Where do you dwell?
In your flesh?
In your feelings?
In your thoughts?

Where do you dwell?
In spirit?
In Soul?

Do you dwell in SOUL?
Do you know and realize
That you are apart from nothing?
That no-thing is apart from you?

Be confident.
Never doubt your true beingness.
In being what you truly are
All things will flow
And BE
Precisely as they must.

Serving IT.
Executing IT's divine will
According to IT's rules
According to the freedom
IT's accorded all,
This is the key
This is what life is all about!

The surrendering.
The serving.
The perpetual occurrence of realization -
The continuing unfoldment of consciousness.

Love all things.

Dwell in them.

Are they not
As uniquely you
As you
UNIQUELY ARE?

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
