Follower of No Separation

Be a follower of
“no separation”
not this nor that,
here nor there.

Weave between traditions and practices
like a mendicant in search of a holy light
which is always
already
here.

No separation: seamless living with what arises,
going with a flow,
rooted in present moment,
being in a state of love
and not just in mind or heart
but full body
extending into an ether of oneness.

No separation: quiet gaze understanding
common heart of wisdom
swimming beneath all disputes and orthodoxies.
Soft wind blowing leaves,
reminder of cycle of life
which transcends words.

No separation: the space beyond and before,
the space steeped in silence
like hot cup of tea:
burns but delicious,
a drink to be savored,
a holy gift:
just like human life with all its complex flavors
unfurling into
One
Great
Expression
(some call God).
