You will burn until you are translucent

The beloved is alive
and is weaving her essences
of separation and union
inside you.

She is sending sadness,
tenderness, rawness,
and sorrow. Joy,
beauty, and aliveness -
each to unlock a secret
place of bliss within.

While you may be tempted
to mend your broken heart,
will you first enter inside it?,
for the beloved is there,
and is working with the sun,
the moon,
and the stars
for the benefit
of beings everywhere.

Yes, you will burn
until you are translucent,
but it is by way of your burning
that your sweet wildness
will finally receive
safe passage
into the sacred world.
