Open the eye of the heart

Deflation, the loss of reference point, and the dissolving of everything you have come to believe about yourself, about life, about love, about intimacy, about the path of the heart: light-arrows in the quiver of the beloved, which he or she will use at any time in order to reduce you to dust.

Stay close, for this activity is pure blessing. These tears, pure revelation.

Before you turn from the holy allies of the shadow, enter inside the envoys of love, and allow them to infuse the known with the unknown - and the seen with the unseen.  Open the eye of your heart and you will see in the dark.

When the known is crumbled away by the beloved and her naked embrace, all that remains is your burning heart. There is nothing more alive than that. There is nothing more sacred than that.
