Inside the mandala of transmutation

Deflation, hopelessness, and an unbearable longing for union – these are light-arrows in the quiver of the beloved, which he or she will use at any time in order to awaken the activity of love within you. Stay close, for this activity is pure blessing.

Before you turn from the sacred allies of the dark, enter into wild intimacy with the envoys of love, and allow them to dissolve the conceptual world. Step inside the mandala of transmutation where it will be revealed that the darkness and the light are one.

When all of your clothing is removed – when the conceptual, emotional, and spiritual robes are undone, knot by knot – your nature as vast translucent awareness is revealed. It is then that the secret of this milky way is unleashed: You will never find love for what you are is love itself. While you may continue to enact the cosmic drama of hide and seek with the beloved, he or she will always have a secret hope that the game will end.

When the known is crumbled away by the beloved and his or her unfolding somatic revelations, all that remains is your burning heart. There is nothing more alive than that. There is nothing more sacred than that. Your ripening body, your miracle senses, your outrageous heart – these are the scriptures of the stars. 


  1. I wandered into your site through some labyrinthine twist, and am glad to have found my way here. Affirmative light after my own heart, dear friend, thank you and blessings.

  2. Such a beautiful paring of image and words. Do you know who the artist is Matt? Thank you.
