The Great Mystery

“The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see.” -Edward Abbey

The Great Mystery

Amongst the cities
you will find
the bustling waves
of people passing,
in hurried rhythms
to clocks racing no end.
But head past the pavement
and soar to lands untouched-
with roaring streams
along enchanted hillsides
you will find true stillness.
In silence all doors
will be opened
and walls dismantled;
with the soul’s wishes
all illusion dissolves in
the bliss that is the trees,
rocks, and riverbeds.
Go inward, to hear
the call of your truth
guiding the virtues
of your subtle being.
Freedoms released in
the winds that dance
around your head,
unite all of existence to one.
Encountering sacred footsteps
with quiet minds,
the spirits come alive.
Give host to your soul
for its time is everlasting.

Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti
