The transmutation of pure presence

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

With no bias for dark or light
she is working with
the entire phenomenal world
to ripen you as a carrier
of the fragrances of both
oneness and multiplicity.

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

While you may be tempted
to mend your broken open heart, will you first
enter inside it?
For the beloved is there,
dancing with her envoys -
the moon and the tides -
weaving a sanctuary
for the transmutation
of pure presence.

Yes, you will burn
until you are translucent,
but it is only by way
of your burning
that love
will find safe passage
into this world.
