It’s For This

 

I want to know.
To experience
It
directly.
Not just to know about
It.

To sit in the
silent hum of my being
To sit in the
silent hum of that
Transcendent Being
The One I choose to call
God
Father

That’s what’s needed
that’s what’s important
to me

I don’t want to settle for less
for writing a beautiful piece
for creating an amazing painting
or sculpture
or for giving something needed to another
All those are Good
But not enough—for me

It is for This
that I seek grounded presence

It is for this
that I allow my whole body
to discover what’s there
through inner-directed movement

It is for This
that I hold-both, or
hold all that comes
welcoming-all
curious-about-all

It’s for this
that I sit in not-knowing
not rushing to an explanation
not rushing to a solution

It’s for this
that I allow the
More to come

Not so that I can
‘teach’ it
—and what is that It,
that I could hope to Share?

This practice
is my set of skis
to move toward It:
the grounded presence,
the inner-directed movement
the holding-both
the not-knowing
the letting-come
of the more

These are the skis
that will take me
—not down
—not up
but out
into that Greater Place
that-holds-us-all-
in-Its-loving-embrace

It is for
This
that I stand here now
that I write this now
It is for
This
