“Light will someday split you open”
Light will someday split you open
even if your life is now a cage.
Little by little, you will turn into stars.
Little by little, you will turn into
the whole sweet, amorous universe.
Love will surely burst you wide open
into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy.
A life-giving radiance will come.
You will become so free
in a wonderful, secret
and pure Love that flows
from a conscious, one-pointed,
O look again within yourself,
and spin in Eternal Ecstasy…
Behold the Beautiful One
from the vantage point of Love.
He is conducting the affairs
of the whole universe
in a tree house – on a limb
in your heart.
